OBITUARY:

Angelo P. “Pat” Perrotta, Jr. passed away Thursday, April 16th after a brief illness. A longtime resident of Woburn, he was seventy-one years of age.

Born in Somerville, he was the son of the late Angelo P. and Rachel (Leonardis) Perrotta. Raised and educated there, he was a graduate of Somerville High School with the Class of 1961.

After graduating from Somerville High School Pat began working at a Furniture Company, then to hardwood flooring and finally to his childhood dream of owning his own company! For over twenty years he had a very successful carpentry business, priding himself in all that he worked on. Pat then decided to work with RJ Kelly as a carpenter for the corporation, which he did for a little over the last twenty years, again working with the same pride and craftsmanship as he had.

Pat also had four sons, to whom he was devoted. He was very heavy into participating in whatever his sons were doing from Boy Scouts, leading Troop 519 in meetings, field trips and projects, and the Woburn Boys and Girls Club, serving on the Board of Directors where he was a leading member in the fundraising activities for the Club over the years. Having his sons participating in sports and attending the different sporting venues throughout the state kept him very busy! Vacation time was always in the mountains of New Hampshire from Newfound Lake to North Conway, swimming, boating, hiking, cookouts, they did it all. Living in the Central Square section of the city, Pat was certainly no stranger to Jack’s variety!

A very fun, easy-going man, Pat always put the needs of others first. His generosity was overwhelming and when the chips were down, Pat was the first person there, to do whatever needed to be done, a legacy which will live on.

Pat was sadly predeceased by his siblings, Francis, Ronnie, and Matilda Perrotta, and his friend, Noreen Damery.

He is lovingly survived by his sons, Paul P. Perrotta and his wife April, Michael E. Perrotta, John D. Perrotta and his wife Maryellen, and David J. Perrotta, all of Woburn; his former wife, Marilyn (Frost) Perrotta; his brother, Anthony Perrotta and his wife Joanne of Plymouth; his grandchildren, Angela, Austin, Jake, Kayla, Tayte, Nicole, James, and Haley; and his girlfriend, Shirley O’Connor; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend a Funeral Service in the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Wednesday evening, April 22nd at 7:30 p.m. Calling hours will be held on Wednesday evening from 4 to 7:30 p.m. prior to the Service. Interment is private. Remembrances may be made in Pat’s memory to the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn, 1 Charles Gardner Lane, Woburn, MA 01801.

  1. I am sort to read about Pat’s passing. We worked together for years. His obit is right on. RIP Pat..

  2. My sincere condolences.
    What a terrific guy Pat Perrotta was: always with a smile, a helpful hand, or a kind word. What great contributions he made and fond memories he created with Scouts – the trip to Washington DC … it was Pat that started “shake the hand, that shook the hand of the Queen of Belgium” which had all us kids going like you wouldn’t believe … because that was the kind of guy he was … making connections … whether it was at Jack’s Variety or at the Smithsonian Institute.

    Deepest Sympathies,
    -Bill O’Brien

  3. To Marilyn Paul Mike Johnny and Dave
    Sorry to hear about your dad he will be missed by me and many others. I’ll always remember him playing Pac-Man down the boys club for hours, to going to Washington DC with Boy Scouts. And then working side-by-side with with him. He taught me well and as I say again he will be sorely missed.

  4. I will never forget as a kid when Pat came over our house and had a pocket full of change and whoever came closest to the amount got the change. And also sleeping over Mal and Pat’s house and Pat would be falling asleep sitting up on the couch. And I would say I wanted chinese food and Mal would have him get it for us. And never once did he complain.
    Rest in peace.
    Sorry for your loss
    Donna and Dan Walker
