Late Veteran, US Navy, Naval Air Divison.
He had a lifelong career as an electrician for the MBTA but his greatest joy was spending time with his family. He loved hosting elaborate cook-outs and Halloween parties. He brought together his children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren to celebrate many holidays. After his wife of over 40 years passed, he stepped up to be the primary grandparent for many of the grandchildren. He would never miss his grandchildren’s sporting events or important life events such as graduations and recitals. He always had a positive outlook and enjoyed taking up new activities. He could be found flying kites at local beaches, a hobby he took up in his 80s. He befriended everyone he met while out and about around Medford. He will be missed dearly by his loving family and many friends.
