OBITUARY:

Dominic L. Mantica, a resident of North Woburn for over fifty years, passed away at the Winchester Hospital on Monday, April 17th, following a long illness. He was the husband of Claire D. (Bevilacqua) Mantica for over fifty-three years.

Born and raised in East Boston, he was the son of the late Dominic and Sarah (Abate) Mantica. A veteran of World War II, he served in the US Army in the European Theatre of Operations.

He and his wife Claire married in 1952 and shortly thereafter moved to Woburn.

Dominic worked as a truck driver for Burlington Sand and Gravel for many years. Following his retirement, he enjoyed traveling, puttering around his house, and fixing old cars. His greatest joy in later years was spending time with his grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by three brothers: Leo, Augustino, and Robert Mantica, and two sisters, Ann Daigle and Mary Amicangioli.

Surviving in addition to his wife Claire are six children, Robert C. Mantica and his wife Karen of Wells, Maine, Stephen D. Mantica, Marie A. Mantica, and Donna M. Zimmerman, all of Florida, Dominic J. Mantica and his wife Elizabeth, and Susan Cudmore and her husband Roy, all of Woburn. Also surviving are two sisters, Constance Ballerene of Lynn and Grace Lennon of Walpole, and six grandchildren, Annamarie, Samantha, Krysten, Gina, Tyler, and Kellee, and many nieces and nephews.

The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Thursday, April 20th, at 10:15 a.m., followed by a funeral mass in St. Anthony Church, 851 Main Street, Woburn, at 11. Interment will follow in Oak Grove Cemetery, Medford.

    I will miss you so much. I’ve been remembering our “growing up” days. I would do something naughty and you would get the blame. Love you.
