Angelo Charles Forester– a lifelong resident of Woburn, died peacefully, Friday, July 5, 2019 at the Windrose in Woburn. He was the beloved husband of 70 years to the late Rose (Nett) Forester, until her passing in 2017.

Born and educated in Woburn, Angelo was a son of the late Carlo and Catherina (Forestieri) Forester.

A kind, generous, hardworking man – he was involved in Agriculture his entire life. He was renowned for the outstanding quality of his family’s flowers and plants. For most of his life he was a principal in the family business of Carl Forester and Sons Wholesale Greenhouses and the Boston Flower Exchange. He was also a lifelong member of the Mass Farm Bureau.

He had a passion for life and was devoted to his wife Rose. Together they made their lifelong family home in the Rag Rock section of Woburn, where they brought six wonderful children into the world to whom they had been dedicated to.

“Pop” as he was affectionately known, had a love for car; always clean, always new and he had a particular love for Cadillacs, but was just as comfortable on a tractor, backhoe or box truck moving flowers and plants to the market.

Angelo loved ballroom dancing, Italian music, poker night with the guys, breakfast with his brother Andy at Cousins, coffee at Dunkin Donuts and summers at Salisbury Beach.

Always smiling and always generous, Angelo will be missed by everyone’s life he touched!
