Clifford T. “Cliff” Wing passed away suddenly at his home early Wednesday morning, January 20th. The beloved husband of Mary J. (Tropea) Wing he was fifty six years old.

Born in Plum Island, Newbury, he was the only child of Jean A. Adams and the late Theodore Syvinski. Raised there on Plum Island he remained for ten years , then to Amesbury, where he finished his education at Amesbury High School.

During the summer of 1980 he had met Mary Tropea at Tuxbury Pond in Amesbury. Well, that’s when a life long journey began. They dated for several years and in 1983 they married. Moving to Woburn, they made their home here and brought four wonderful children into the world, to whom he was devoted.

CT Wing Construction began and Cliff, a licensed construction supervisor, dedicated himself to his business for over twenty five years. Whether it be his Homes, additions rooms, whatever the client needed Cliff provided it. Throughout his life he was always very handy around the house, with cars, trucks and anything else that needed attention. If he didn’t know how, he would always figure it out!

Spending time with his family was the best time. Summers at Tuxbury Pond, camping, hiking, walking it ewas all good. New Years Eve has always been a special time. All family and friends would gather for the traditional New Years Eve bon fire in the backyard. Bow hunting and fishing licenses, always in his wallet always kept him prepared ….just in case! He and Mary enjoyed spending time together taking walks through the Quabbin Reservoir, going off to Portsmouth, Portland, Rockport or Boston and scoping out new places to visit.

Children all grew and his new role as “Grumpy” was embraced from the beginning. He so loved spending time with them, that babysitting was always a pleasure. Time in the back yard was always well spent, from the swings to the sandbox, it was all fun!

Cliff was a man of his word. You always knew where you stood with Cliff. A sense of humor that would not quit, and a heart as big as he was. A man of simple means, who was always prepared for the journey, with his family at his side.

Sadly, Cliff was predeceased by his father, his sister, Regina Wing, his grandparents, Donald and Theresa Wing, his father in-law, Joseph J. Tropea, and his brother in-law, Robert S. Tropea.

He is lovingly survived by his wife, Mary J.(Tropea) Wing of Woburn, his mother, Jean A. Adams of ME, his children, Jennifer M. Poore and husband Kevin and Justin C. Wing and girlfriend Lacey Brown, all of Woburn, Christina L. Angelosanto and husband Frederick “Freddie” of NH and Joseph D. Wing and girlfriend Haley Alix of Essex, his uncle and aunts, Donnie, Barbara and Carol, his grandchildren, Valentina, Juliana, Angelina,Kaycee and Noah, and his in-laws, Jeanne A. “Nonni” Tropea of Woburn, Elaine Hall and husband Rolland of NH, Joseph J. Tropea, Jr. of MA, and Jay S. Tropea and companion Danny Mescall of NH.
