Jeremiah J. “Jerry” Langone, passed away on Tuesday, November 5th at the age of eighty-six.  He was the beloved husband of Jean I. (Wells) Langone.

 

Born in Woburn, he was son of the late Louis and Domenica (Iannela) Langone, who had come here from Italy.  They settled in the North Woburn section of the City where he remained throughout his life.  Being one of ten children and the ninth child, there were always people to play with, teams to be made and fun to be had.

 

At the age of ten he began working on a local farm in North Woburn, where he joined his other siblings.  A graduate of Woburn High School, Jerry was an active member of the Class of 1950.

 

Following High School he enlisted in the United States Army, where he served his country proudly during the Korean War.

 

In 1955 he married his sweetheart Jean Wells, whom he journeyed with over the next sixty-four years.  They brought four children into the world, two sons and two daughters, whom he treasured.  He was very proud of each and never missed an event that they were involved in, be it school sports, programs, or graduations; he would attend the event and then return to work. 

 

Jerry worked in construction all his life and was very proud to show his grandchildren the buildings and bridges he worked on.

 

A lifelong New York Giants fan, he was an avid follower.  He never missed a game on television unless he was lucky enough to travel to New York to see one live. Generally speaking, family vacations usually revolved around fun, family road trips to sporting events or the Giants training camps.

 

Jerry and Jean were very active in the St. Anthony’s Club in North Woburn throughout the years.  They both enjoyed Saturday nights there, dancing, dancing, and more dancing! They had a ball!

 

“Papa” loved his grandchildren.  He shared a very special relationship with each one individually, and as a group! Holidays, birthdays, graduations from high school and college, were wonderful times together. He was just so proud of them all!

 

Jerry was truly a wonderful man, husband, Dad and Papa.  His family, his faith and his country were most important to him, and were to Jerry, what life was all about.  He will be dearly missed by all.

    Jean and the Langone family my deepest condolences for the passing of Jerry.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Jerry 20 plus years ago at the East End Club in Lowell, I knew when I first met him we had a lot in common even though Jerry was a (GIANTS) fan. I will miss all the sports banter and especially our boys nights out for dinner/Saturday lunches in Tewksbury. Jerry you are one of a kind and truly will be missed. I will never forget your saying each time we met “To Good Friends” may you rest in peace and god bless my friend.
