Peter M. Dango, a lifelong resident of Woburn, passed away after a brief illness, at home surrounded by his family, on Friday afternoon. The beloved husband of Cynthia ‘Cindy’ (Demas), he was fifty-five years of age. Born in Woburn, Peter was the son of Jean M. (MacDormand) Dango of Woburn and the late Angelo J. ‘Michael’ Dango. Raised in the Horn Pond area of Woburn, Peter was a 1969 graduate of Woburn High School and went on to attend Graham Junior College where he received his Associates Degree in Communications. He was employed by Polaroid for thirty two years as a analytical chemist. After Polaroid’s closing, Peter took a position with Wyeth Biopharmecuticals in Andover, as a Senior Training and Development Specialist where he has worked for the past four years. During the 1990’s , Peter attended Emmanuel College where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Business.
In 1970, he married his high school sweetheart, Cindy Demas and they made their home in North Woburn where they raised their two children, to whom Peter was wonderfully attentive and devoted. As a family they traveled and camped extensively visiting the National Parks across this country. An avid motorcyclist, Peter and his family also attended motorcycle rallies throughout the U.S. and Canada. When Michael was older, he and Peter attended the Laguana Motorcycle races and also biked to many places accompanied by Peter’s friends. Since the early eighties, Peter and his friends would go on their ‘pointed stick expedition’, their destination determined randomly. This was a tradition they continued year after year.
On Peter and Cindy’s twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, they traveled to Europe visiting several countries by motorcycle. During the summer months, they took a nightly motorcycle ride for ice cream on one of the three motorcycles Peter owned. His favorite however was his 1980 Harley Davidson and he was a member of the Merrimac Valley Chapter Harley Owner’s Group and the American Motorcycle Association.
In addition, Peter was an avid reader, particularly Stephen King’s thrillers, and he had begun working on a new addition for their home.
Peter and Cindy were blessed with a grandson, Matthew, who was so loved by his grandfather and was the light of his life. Peter truly was a kind and gentle son, husband, father and grandfather and was generous not only to his family, but to his friends and anyone who needed help.
