Richard Bratt, a life long resident of Woburn, passed away at the Lahey Clinic, Friday, November 19th, 2021, with his family by his side. The beloved husband of the late Mary June (McCormack) Bratt, he was eighty-nine years of age.  

Born in Cambridge, Richard was the son of the late Carl and Emma Louise (Fehrm) Bratt.  Educated in the Woburn Schools, Richard was a graduate of Woburn High School Class of 1951.  In the fall of 1952, Richard enlisted in the United States Army where he proudly served his country during the Korean War.   Following his service to our country, Richard married his long time sweetheart Mary June McCormack, to whom he was devoted to for over fifty six years and over all these years together you never saw one without the other!  If there was music to be listened to or dances on weekend nights, he and Mary would always join in on the dance floor, and dance the night away!

Richard was a cabinet maker and owned and operated Wood Craft in Wilmington. He so enjoyed, working with his hands, making and designing all sorts of wooden treasure’s!  Having brought three children into the world Richard was a wonderful Dad and husband.  He dedicated himself to his family, and all his life worked three jobs to provide for his them.  

Another of his successful ventures was that of his cleaning company “Bratt’s Cleaning.” Industrial, businesses or homes, Richard took great pride in “a job well done” every time!  And it was.

A very important part of Richard and his family’s life was that of their  faith filled commitment to the Baptist Church of Woburn.  For well over twenty five years Richard’s  involvement in the church unity was  phenomenal.  He had served as the Sexton, where it was not just caring for the church and it’s grounds, it was everything and everyone!  His greatest joy was being able to do all that, for everyone.  Helping the parishioners in any way possible, visitors, reaching out to the elderly,  giving rides to those in need or sharing in conversations, he did it all with great enthusiasm and pleasure.

Richard was a very kind, honest and gentle man.  He shared his love and respect to all, consistently, throughout his life time, in all that he did.  Certainly a legacy which will be long remembered by all the lives he so gently touched.

Richard was sadly predeceased by his dear wife of fifty-six years Mary June (MacCormack) Bratt and son in law, Roy Hallett.

He was the devoted father of R. Kevin Bratt of Woburn, David K. Bratt, his wife Gail of Lowell and Marsha G. Hallett of Woburn,  cherished grandfather of Amanda Bratt along with many loving extended family members.
