OBITUARY:

Andrew G. “Jerry??? Langone, a lifelong resident of Woburn, passed away quietly at his home on Friday, October 11th. The beloved husband of Irene M. (Sauer) Langone, he was sixty-two years of age. Born in Boston, he was the son of the late Andrew and Dena (Pasquale) Langone. Raised and educated in Woburn, Jerry graduated from Woburn High School in 1957 after which he attended two years of Radio College. He was subsequently hired by the MDC Highway Dept as a bridge inspector, graduating to a position as engineer.

Affectionately known as “Jerry??? to his family and friends, he was a devoted family man and yet managed to belong to numerous organizations to which he volunteered his time. He volunteered for the WGBH fund raising drives for fifteen years and operated the freezer truck at their annual Ice Cream Fest. He volunteered at the Linscott Rumford Elementary School PTO Committee helping to plan programs and activities. He was a founder of the Woburn Sports Inc, a group that maintained the lighting on the high school athletic fields as well as raised money for scholarships. Although battling cancer himself, he managed to raise thousands of dollars over an eight year period on walkathons for Project Bread. He was a former member of the Jaycees, the Elks and cooked for a number of functions at the South End Italian Club. He was instrumental in founding the “Connolly Road Race???, now in its twelfth year, to benefit Woburn Athletics and Scholarship Funds. He was an active member of the Executive Board of the Mass Association of Italian Police Officers, the Executive Board of the Mass Organization of State Engineers, the Board of the Middlesex Deputy Sheriffs Assoc., and was a member of the National Model Railroad Assoc. Model railroads was one of Jerry’s favorite hobbies. Jerry’s dedication and enthusiasm will live on in the many organizations that he devoted himself to throughout his life.

Jerry is survived by his wife Irene M. (Sauer) Langone to whom he was married for close to twenty-five years, his daughter Ann Marie Langone of Winter Park, FL, his son Andrew J. and his wife Joy of Tampa, Fl, his daughter Angela J.

  1. I worked with Jerry installing the lights at Woburn High. He was great person who undertook a monumental task for which he received little credit. I will always remember the way he gave of himself without looking for much in return. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    Respectfully,

  2. Dear Irene and Family,

    I first met Jerry at WGBH where I volunteered for the tlevision pledge drive and also work. Later I also got the pleasure of meeting Irene. What a delightful, pleasant and kind man Jerry was to be around. He shared with me his wonderful stories of his times at WGBH. At our last coversation with he and Irene at a TV pledge drive, we were trying to remember a certain actor whose name we had all forgotten. I feel blessed to have been touched by this wonderful person.

    To the family,

    Love & Blessings to you
