Richard V.  D’Amico, passed away at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Wednesday, May 23rd, with his beloved family by his side.  The loving husband of Phyllis C. (Robie) D’Amico, Richard was eighty seven years of age.

Born and raised in East Boston, he was son of the late Renato “Mico” and Arlene (Paolini) D’Amico.  Richard graduated from B.C. High School in 1947 and continued on to Boston College, where he graduated from with a degree in Theology.  After graduation, he served his country proudly in the US Navy during the Korean Conflict, until being honorably discharged.

All while growing up in East Boston on Cottage Street, Richard worked in his Mom’s bakery after school, summers and throughout college.  He was never a stranger to hard work and doing whatever was necessary to help his Mom. Years later, Richard himself became involved in the food industry, following his parent’s footsteps.  As a Restaurateur, Richard owned and operated Riley’s Roast Beef, all throughout the Boston area.  Again, he learned well, always ready, willing and able to put in all the time necessary needed to succeed.  This wonderful attribute he learned so well, was passed on to all eight of his children at an early age.

Richard met his beloved wife Phyllis on a beautiful sunny day at Revere Beach in 1951. Two years later they married and in 1956 moved to Woburn where they have remained.  Richard was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather who had a huge heart of gold, doing anything humanly possible for his beloved family.  Richard’s sense of humor was to be admired, always having the ability to make everyone smile.  Traveling with his family, to the Cape, Atlantic City, Bar Harbor, Maine or in the back yard of his home, he so enjoyed.  With all his children, grandchildren, and relatives, his family was his world.   

He was the beloved husband of 65 years to Phyllis C. (Robie) D’Amico.
