OBITUARY;

Willaim V. “Bill” Livolsi passed away Saturday morning October third at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington. The beloved husband of Dorothy M. “Dottie” (Young) Livolsi, he was seventy nine years of age.

Born in East Boston, Bill was one of four children of the late Joseph and Josephine (Anistasio) Livolsi. Raised on London Street in East Boston Bill was educated there and a graduate of Boston Latin in 1954.

Following high school Bill began working as a printer for the Nimrod Press, which was a high end printing company that basically dealt with National Geographic and other popular magazines.

One particular weekend in the fall he had journeyed out to Lenox to partake in the festivities of a single’s weekend at Eastover. It was there that he was introduced to Dottie Young and it was truly love at first sight. They began their courtship of a year and a half and then in 1964 married! They had moved to Allston for several years and then nestled in to North Woburn, where they have made their home for over the last fifty years.

During the seventies Bill attended Fitchburg State College where in the early eighties he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Arts.

In 1984 he secured a position at the Shawsheen Regional Valley Technical School, where he began as a teacher and later became Department Head, retiring after twenty seven dedicated years in 2004.

All during that time he was a dedicated husband and father. Bringing two sons into the world, he was extremely devoted to them both! Hockey, soccer, baseball and whatever the boys were doing, he was right there cheering them on. Summers brought wonderful hiking trips, fishing, boating and camping adventures!

Bill and Dottie loved to dance, often being referred to as “Fred and Ginger.” When an opportunity presented itself, and a dance floor present be it a wedding, party or dance hall, they elegantly floated across the floor.

A camera around Bill’s neck was a constant. He so enjoyed capturing all the wonderful moments throughout his life and those of his family and environment.A very jovial, friendly and gentle man, Bill treasured his family and all they shared throughout his lifetime.

Bill was a former member of the Woburn Kiwana’s and Mass Teachers Association.

In addition to his parents, Bill was predeceased by his brother Andrew.

Bill is lovingly survived by his wife of fifty one years Dorothy M.”Dottie” (Young) Livolsi, his devoted sons Glen W. Livolsi and Todd F. Livolsi both of Saugus. Dear brother of Richard Livolsi of Saugus, Robert Livolsi of Mattapoisett, Frances Campbell of Chelmsford, and the late Andrew Livolsi. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

  1. Sorry to hear about the loss of Bill. He was a respected member of the Woburn Kiwanis and helped out on many projects over the years. I’m sure that there are many memories to help keep him in mind. I will remember the family at this sad time in my prayers.

  2. Our deepest condolences go out to you, Dottie, Glen, and Todd. We knew Bill since we moved to Wilmington and we will miss him. We were so happy that you both spent time with us last Saturday.
