OBITUARY:

Gino N. Michelutti of Boston passed away on Monday, October 16th. He was seventy-eight years of age.

Born in Boston, he was the son of the late Victor and Rose (Graffitti) Michelutti. He was a graduate of Roxbury Memorial High School and a veteran of the Korean War, having served with the US Army.

For many years, Gino worked as a laborer for the Public Works Department of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Previously he was employed in the shipping department of Merck Pharmaceuticals.

He was very involved with St. Patrick’s Church in Roxbury, where he was a daily communicant, and St. Joseph’s Church in Boston. Over the years he served as a lector and acolyte, and gave countless hours to volunteer work. He was especially involved with Neighborhood Action, a program through the Church of St. John the Evangelist which provides food, comfort and respite for the poor, homeless and elderly.

Although he resided in Boston, Gino had lived in Woburn for a period of time and maintained close connections through his cousins here, frequently attending St. Charles Church when in Woburn.

Gino had a wonderful voice and in his younger days was frequently called upon to sing at weddings, musicals, and community events. He was an avid sports fan and loved to travel. He enjoyed many cruises over the years and in years past would take a bus across America, stopping to visit different parts of the country, including Alaska.

Gino was preceded in death by a brother, Alfred Michelutti, and a sister, Maria DePaoli.

He is survived by a sister, Anita Bernardi of California and many cousins, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and nephews and friends who were very dear to him.

The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Friday, October 20th, at 9:45 a.m., followed by a funeral mass in St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street, Woburn, at 10. Interment will follow in Woodbrook Cemetery, Woburn.

Relatives and friends are invited to call at the funeral home Friday morning from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m.

Donations may be made in Gino’s memory to Neighborhood Watch, c/o Rev. Ron Tibbetts, 35 Bowdoin Street, Boston, MA 02114, or to the Woburn Council of Social Concern, 2 Merrimac Street, Woburn, MA 01801.

    Dear Gino: I’ll miss our Friday afternoon chats in the Rectory Office — you really knew a lot about a lot of things in life. God is now welcoming you to heaven where you can have Friday chats with Him.

    Thanks for being such a good friend of mine.
