Agrippino T. “Pino” Scire passed away at his home with loving family by his side.  The beloved husband of the late Catherine M. (Reil) Scire, he was ninety four years of age.   Born in Woburn, Pino was one of nine children born to the late Mario and Lena (Forester) Scire. Raised in the Kel Town section of the city, Pino remained in that area his entire life.  He went on to Woburn High School, but when the War broke out, Pino enlisted in the United States Navy where he bravely defended our country.  Stationed on the USS Wasp, which was a United States Navy aircraft carrier, commissioned in 1940,  was attacked by Japenese  Kamikaze planes and took three torpedo hits,  in 1944 while in the Coral Sea.  Pino was one of the fortunate Navymen who made it to safety.

Following his return home he was introduced to a lovely young woman Kay Reil, while attending a dance.  Well, this was the perfect match and in 1951 they married, and for the next forty six years they journeyed together.   He started Scire Construction in the fifties, which still exists today, and where he had continued working while he served on the Woburn Fire Department, having achieved the rank of Lieutenant at the time of his retirement in 1977. They brought five children into the world, one daughter and four sons.  He was so very proud of each and every one of them.   Then the joy of becoming “Papa,” was phenomenal!  He shared a very special relationship with each grandchild, individually and as a group; enjoying each others company here in Woburn, at their summer home in Gloucester and wintering in Florida!  There was always room!   A rather quiet man, Pino was extremely hard working, strong and generous.  He saw and experienced a lot over his ninety four years.  Being a part of The Greatest Generation, he remained dedicated and true to his faith, family and country.

Pino was predeceased by his wife Catherine M. (Reil), his parents, Mario and Lena, siblings late Rose Baggett, Samuel Scire, and Mary O’Hara.  Devoted father of Thomas M. Scire, his companion Claire Brugnani of Woburn, Robert C. Scire, his wife Jackie of NH, William E. Scire, his wife Penny of ME, Michael D. Scire, his wife Allison of Woburn, and Laura J. Doherty, her husband John ”Jack” of Woburn. Dear brother of William, Robert and Eleanor Scire all of Woburn, Richard Scire of ME, Francis Scire of North End of Boston.  Loving “Papa” of Lauren, Leanne, Michael, Robert, Nicole, Johnny, Eddie, Ellen, Krista, Benjamin, Emily, and William. “Great Papa” of Lena Rose and Ben. Pino is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.
