OBITUARY:

Vincent J. Conti passed away at the Winchester Hospital, Monday, November thirtieth. The beloved husband of the late Jeanne (Ledwell) Conti was ninety-one years of age.

Born in Somerville, Vincent was one of four children born to the late Louis and Giustina (Agostini) Conti. Vincent was also raised in Somerville where he was a graduate of Somerville High School along with the Class of 1942.

Following high school Vincent enlisted in the United States Navy, where he served proudly during World War II, serving on a PT boat in the Philippines, the RON 10 Squadron.

Vincent was introduced to Jeanne Ledwell on a blind date! With a friend of a friend they went to the ever so popular “Totem Pole,” where the big bands played.

They married in 1948. First residing in Brighton while Vincent was attending Boston University where he received his Bachelors Degree. They soon began a family and were blessed with three sons.

When the boys were young, the family took road trips during the summer months to destinations such as the New York World’s Fair, Washington D.C. and every place in between!

In 1960, the Conti family made Woburn their home.

Throughout their lifetime, Vincent and Jeanne enjoyed travelling. Whether it was south to New Orleans, Nashville, or Florida or north to New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont or Canada, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

After Vincent’s retirement, it was south to Key West! Here they had made many new friends but always looking forward to entertaining family and “old” friends.

During the later years, he had the great joy of being grandfather to nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, which kept him very busy and most importantly extremely proud of all.
