Dominic F. “Nick” D’Arcangelo passed away after a brief illness, Tuesday evening September 17th, with his beloved family right by his side. Loving husband of the late Jean (Lifford) D’Arcangelo, he was ninety five years of age.

Born in Somerville, Nick was raised and educated there and a graduate of Somerville High School, along with the Class of 1941. Following High School Nick enlisted in the United States Navy, where he proudly served his country.

While in school Nick would enjoy Sunday afternoons roller skating at the Ballarue in Somerville.. It was there he met the absolute love of his life, Jean Lifford. They journeyed together over the next sixty nine years together, side by side!

They remained in Somerville after they were married, until 1953 when they moved to the country, aka Woburn! They settled in, made their home, and dedicated themselves to their family.

Following High School Nick enlisted in the United States Navy, where he proudly served his country.

Upon his return he began working for Hemingway Trucking as a driver, and worked as much as he possible could so as to provide for his family. His job at Hemmingway led him to the Teamsters Union Local 25; here he assumed the position of tractor trailer instructor. Retiring in the early sixties, he and Jean moved to Seminol, Florida, where they remained for over the next twenty years, in retirement! Always making visits home for holidays and a summer vacation up north!

Family was the most significant part of Nick’s life. The busier his home, the better Nick liked it! “A happy house was a busy house!” He was an accomplished keyboard player and loved playing inside and outside his home! Walking six miles a day he always remained in excellent health and always met new and interesting people along the way.

Nick had a heart of gold. There were many times throughout his life, where Nick lent a helping had to family, friends and people he didn’t even know. If his perception was something needed to be done and he was there, consider it done!

Nick lived life to the fullest. He cherished his daughter, two sons and their families, and left them with many happy and loving memories of a life well lived.
