Angelo P. “Angie” Masotta passed away peacefully at his home in Woburn, Wednesday morning, August 21, 2019 with his beloved family at his bedside.  He was ninety seven years of age and the loving husband of the late Eleanor M. (Garrity) Masotta.

Born in Woburn, he was son of the late Catino and Phillipa (Mundalina) Masotta, who were Italian immigrants.  They raised their family in the Garfield Avenue of the city and Angie had graduated from Woburn High School in 1940.

He began working for Monsanto Company here in Woburn as a machinist but several years after he started he enlisted in the United States Navy, where he proudly served his country for three years during World War II.

Upon his return home, he returned to Monsanto, where he remained until his retirement in the early eighties.

Angie had attended a barn dance in Acton where he was introduced to Eleanor Garrity, to whom he was married to for just shy of seventy years.

They brought eight children into the world and was dedicated to them all.  They made their home in the Hammond Square section of the city, where Angie lived all of his married life, dedicated to his family.  It was the “hub” for all activities, all throughout  the years for all of the family!

He worked non- stop throughout his forty plus years at Monsanto, taking all the overtime he could get to adequately provide for his wife and children.  Throughout the years they have remained very close as siblings and truly stand strong as a family.

When Angie retired and the children were pretty much all grown he took up golf, which was a sport he had always wanted to play, but never really had the time! So for the next few decades he and his group of friends frequented Woburn Country Club, first thing in the morning on a weekly basis!

His garden was pride and joy. Every year he had a garden full of lots and lots of produce!  Tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, peppers, and more tomatoes!  Angie’s tomatoes were the best!  Once he began harvesting his garden, sharing it all with family, friends and neighbors, right on up to a few short weeks ago.  

A very quiet, kind and gentle man, Angie and his wife attended Mass each Sunday together over the years. Their strength together as a couple and as a family brought great joy and whole lot of love for over seventy three years.

Loving father of Paul Masotta of Wilmington, Chuck Masotta, his partner Tommy Strakus of Boston, Mike Masotta, his wife Debbie, Tom Masotta, his wife Ellen, all of Woburn, David Masotta, of NH, Ellen Irwin, her husband Kenneth of Woburn, Jean Kelley, her husband Sterling of Yarmouthport and Mary Garbino, of Woburn.
