Vincent V. Nardone, a lifelong resident of Woburn, passed away quietly at his home surrounded by his family, on Friday, October 7th. The beloved husband of Theresa “Terry??? (Dyer) Nardone, he was seventy-nine years of age.

Born in Woburn, Vinny, as he was affectionately known, was the son of the late Vincenzo and Josephine (Petrillo) Nardone. Educated in the Woburn public schools, he was a graduate of Woburn High School. Throughout his school years, Vinny loved sports and possessed great athletic prowess. Some years after high school, he was a member of the Tornados, a semi professional football team based in East Boston.

In 1943, Vinny entered the United States Navy where he served during World War II as a coxswain and was the recipient of the Victory Medal, the American Theatre Medal, the Philippine Liberation Medal and the Asiatic Pacific Medal. While serving his country, he also competed quite successfully as a welterweight boxer.

Upon completion of his military service, Vinny continued his education at MIT and Wentworth. He subsequently secured a position at Perini Construction Company where he remained for a number of years before transferring to J.J. Vacarro Construction Company.

During his fifteen year tenure at Vacarro Construction, he rose to the position of Superintendent. Vinny was later employed at the California Olive Oil Co. in Salem as plant manager, where he remained for thirty years until his retirement.

In 1961, Vinny married his wife “Terry??? to whom he was devoted for forty-four years. They made their home in the Nardone homestead in East Woburn where they raised their two sons. In addition to their Woburn residence, they maintained a year round home in Guilford, New Hampshire where they spent many happy days. The New Hampshire landscape lent itself to snowmobiling, boating, jet skiing and swimming, all of which the family enjoyed. As a lifelong sportsman, Vinny was an avid hunter and would travel to Newfoundland each year to hunt moose and bear.

Having spent his entire life in Woburn, Vinny formed and nurtured many close relationships with his schoolmates and his neighbors. He cherished his family and friends and each morning after his retirement he would gather for coffee with his “buddies??? at Frannies.

Vincent was predeceased by his son, Donald Nardone, his brother Anthony Nardone and his sister Clementine Marcella.

In addition to his wife, Theresa “Terry??? (Dyer) Nardone, he is survived by his son Vincent Nardone, Jr., his brother Sammy Nardone, his sister Julia Circone Chipman, his nieces, Helene Wild Tucker, Mary Ross, and Sandy Carrano and many other loving nieces and nephews.

The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Tuesday, October 11th, at 10:15 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Anthony Church, 851 Main Street, No. Woburn, at 11. Interment will take place in Calvary Cemetery, Woburn.

    Terri, I am very sorry to hear about Vinnie. Even though I’m in NC now, I think of the two of you often and all the happy times with my grandparents Frank and Vicki Pedi. Having just come on the year (10/2/04) and second year (10/11/03) deaths of my parents Paula and John, I know what your going through and you are in my prayers and will continue to be. I can still see Vinny with his sparkly eyes and infectious smile. Please take care – you and your son and god bless.
    All my love, Vicki

  2. Terri, We are so sorry to hear of Vinny’s passing. We spent much of our childhood growing up with the both of you and we cherish the great times we had with him. Vinny was a great man so full of life and so good to others. I can remember being 7 years old and hearing everyone call Vinny a card and as I got older I realized why that was, he always made everyone smile and laugh. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. I am sure Vinny is smiling down on all of us now. God bless all of you. Kellie McCurdy-Clary, Paula McCurdy-Sousa, Michelle McCurdy-Spindler and Catherine McCurdy.
