René F. Baudat

May 7, 2011

Longtime Sedona resident and restaurateur René F. Baudat died at Flagstaff Medical Center on May 7, following a rollover accident on April 20.
A decorated Korean War veteran, Baudat worked for American Airlines and Holland America Cruise Lines as a chef and had restaurants in Denver and Aspen, Colo., before he and his wife, Jan, started René at Tlaquepaque in 1977.

A memorial service will be held in June.

Baudat is survived by his son, Michael, and grandaughter, Michelle.

    Rene and I spent afternoons talking in his library of fascinating tomes when he lived on Piedras del Norte in VOC. After he tasted my homemade chocolate brownies at a party, he asked me out! We were 35 years different in age. What a fine gentleman!
