Raymond Macinanti, a lifelong resident of Woburn, died at his home July 6th, 2018. He was the beloved husband of 57 years to Ora R. (Davis) Macinanti.

Born and educated in Woburn, Ray was a son of the late Antonio and Estherina (Fedeli) Macinanti.

Beginning in 1956, Ray would serve his country proudly for two years in the United States Army. He was stationed in Italy as member of the 7th army, whose troop’s  motto was “Seven Steps to Hell”.

For over 60 years, Ray worked in many different capacities for Stop and Shop and the former, Purity Supreme. While he had to leave his position at Purity Supreme to serve his country, he was offered his job back when he returned. He held many different positions, ranging from stocking shelves, receiving goods to Assistant Manager.  You name it, he did it. In 2017, Ray retired from the Stop and Shop in Winchester.

Ray was a big Boston sports fan who especially loved watching the Red Sox and Patriots. He was an avid bowler in the South End Italian Club League back in the day. He loved to putter in his vegetable garden and make homemade sauce with his tomatoes. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family over the years with trips to Laconia, Hampton Beach, going on cruises and very special trips to Disney and Six Flags with his grandchildren.

Along with being survived by his wife Ora, Raymond will be deeply missed by his children Janis Court of FL, Leo Kerrigan of Wilmington, Sharyn Cavanaugh, her husband Larry of Lowell, Raymond Macinanti, his wife Jamie of Woburn and Lisa Burns, her husband Steve of Nashua, NH.
