Frederick Rynne Obituary

Frederick F. Rynne, age 63, of Watertown, MA, formerly of Belmont, passed away peacefully at
Mt. Auburn Hospital on Dec. 30, 2023, following severe complications of Covid-19. He is
survived by his wife of 43 years, Ann (Noe) Rynne, his brother Edward J. Rynne Jr. of
Alexandria, VA, and his two sisters, Mary Ann Rynne of Houston TX and Valerie E. Rynne of
San Mateo, CA. He is also survived by his nephew Thomas F. Peskin of San Mateo CA, his

nieces Amara Johnson Dupré of Houston TX and Laura R. Peskin of Oakland CA, brother-in-
law Frank Noe of Milford MA and sister-in-law Donna (Noe) O’Rourke of Plymouth MA, as well

as many cherished relatives in the extended Rynne, Sullivan, Baltadonis, and Noe families.
Fred attended both the University of Chicago and U Mass Boston, earning a degree in
Economics. The youngest of four children, Fred was a precocious early reader and showed
exceptional skill at the game of chess. He had a remarkable memory, a discerning wit, and
showed special devotion to family members challenged by a disability. Fred’s wife Ann and his
brother and sisters are deeply grateful for the time they had during Fred’s last days to
exchange directly with him many memories of shared experiences as well as words of comfort
and love for one another. Fred’s deep spiritual faith sustained him during that time and was the
source of the profound peace and joy he generously shared with everyone around him during
his final days. Fred’s family is grateful to all those who offered prayers and other forms of
support for Fred and for his wife and family during his unexpected hospitalization. Visiting
