Noftall, her husband John, Patti A. Valente Lloyd, her husband Walter, Rosemarie Valente Hubbard, her husband Robert, and Joanne Valente Donovan, her husband Robert, all of Woburn.  Dear brother of the late of Camille Capriulo and her husband Anthony of Woburn.

Brogna Jr. and his late wife Marjorie. Dear cousin of Barbara Lancelotta of Woburn, and Louis “Biffie” Capaldo and his wife Betty of Billerica. He is also survived by many loving cousins, nieces, and nephews.

 

Raised in the South End of Woburn, Sam was educated in Woburn Public Schools graduating from Woburn High School with the Class of 1953.  Shortly after high school he married the love of his life, his best friend and confidant Rosemarie, with whom he shared sixty-three years with. They were blessed with four daughters to whom they were devoted.  Summers were spent in Ipswich at their family cottage, along with family and friends, digging for clams, walking on the beach, and hanging out at the yacht club.

 

Sam was a hard working man. He provided as much as he could for his family, especially his wife, who was constantly adorned with jewelry from him.  He worked two jobs for years, one was at Farrell’s Service Center in Woburn and the other at Polaroid. These jobs provided Sam with many friendships because of his caring and outgoing demeanor.  These friendships spanned years and even crossed oceans as one of his best friends from Polaroid, Paddy Burke, was an Irishman.  Sam and Rosemarie enjoyed many trips to Ireland to visit their dear friends and the love continues today with Paddy and Sam’s children and grandchildren maintaining close friendships.

 

While Sam and Rosemarie had taken trips over the years to Ireland, they also traveled to Bermuda and Niagra Falls. Two of their favorite vacation spots were Shangri-La on Lake Winnipesauke, where they met their close friends Nick and Joyce Tammaro, and Sanibel Island, Florida, where they traveled with their cousins Biffy and Betty Capaldo, daughters and grandchildren. Although Sam and Rosemarie enjoyed traveling, they also found solstice in Great Neck, Ipswich, where they vacationed at their summer home.  The summer trips made with their friends, children, and grandchildren to “the cottage” were some of their most treasured moments.

 

Sam’s faith was insurmountable. Both Sam and Rosemarie were actively involved in St. Anthony Church and Parish, for many years they served as Eucharistic Ministers and helped with the annual St. Anthony’s festival. Additionally, Sam was a longtime member, former Board of Director and former treasurer of the St. Anthony Club.

 

All throughout his life, Sam’s focus was on his faith, family and friends.  The love of his friends and family surrounded him in life and follows him in death. Sam’s infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit will be greatly missed by his friends and family forever.
