OBITUARY:

Pasquale A. “Pat” DiGregorio passed away at Woburn Nursing Center, Sunday, March 27th after a brief illness. The beloved husband of Joan Pauline (Williams) DiGregorio, he was eighty five years old.

Born in Boston, he was the son of the late Patrick and Alice (Cacavilla) DiGregorio. One of eight children he was raised and educated in the Boston Schools.

After high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force serving his country proudly for four years during the Korean War.

Upon his return he began working in the Lowell Cabinetry business. As he rose through the ranks there, he soon became the manager. Well, as luck would have it Pat introduced himself to one of the workers, Joan Williams. It was a match right from the beginning and over two years later they were married at St. Peter’s Church in Lowell over fifty seven years ago. During the 1960’s they moved to Woburn where Pat owned and operated Mama Felicia’s, in Woburn Square for a good number of years. He loved to cook all sorts of meals but most favorite cultural dishes were of course, Italian! His culinary abilities were truly exceptional and thoroughly enjoyed by many over the years.

Summers he and Joan would head to Boston Harbor where they moored the “Padi-Jo.” Many, many happy days were spent on the “Padi-Jo”, cruising Atlantic, boating around all the different islands and harbors, they had a ball!

When Pat decided to “retire” he decided to take on a part time job driving the van for what is now Nupath, formerly CMARC. For over eleven years Pat always took care of the transportation there. Running shuttles, delivering any and everything that needed to be, and enjoyed every single minute! Pat was the recipient of many different and exceptional awards for his very kind nature, generous spirit and wonderful personality. Everything Pat did, he did it wholeheartedly and with a great amount of love.

Sadly, Pat was predeceased by his parents, the late Patrick and Alice (Cacavilla) DiGregorio and his siblings Viola Marino, Eleanor Scearbo, Dorothy Milligan, Anthony DiGregorio, Gloria DiGregorio, and Jean Mercadante.

Pat is lovingly survived by Joan Pauline(Williams)DiGregorio. Treasured brother of Joseph DiGregorio and his wife Debbie of Somerville. Devoted Uncle of Francis Marino his wife Linda of Bedford, Sharon Black her husband Richard of Woburn as well as several other nieces, nephews and grand-nieces and grand nephews. Services are private and under the direction of the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn.
