Aramis Raul Ayala Genta

Family & friends are welcome to attend Visiting Hours on Thursday, August 8th from 5:00p.m. to 8:00 p.m., in the Vertuccio and Smith Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rt. 107) Revere, for  Aramis Raul Ayala Genta of Swampscott, formerly of East Boston, who passed away on Sunday August 4th, at the Bertram House in Swampscott, after a long illness, he was 79.   A funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Friday, August 9th at 10 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass to celebrate his life at 11 a.m., in St. John the Evangelists Church, 174 Humphrey St. Swampscott.

Born and raised in Montevideo, Uruguay, Raul was a distinguished professional soccer player who played for teams in Uruguay (Danubio), Ecuador (America) and the U.S. He was a member of the Philadelphia Ukrainians team that won the 1966 U.S. Open Cup Soccer Championship and also played in Boston for the Boston Tigers. After retiring as a professional, he continued to participate in local leagues, both as a player and coach, while working for Chas. T. Main and Bioran/Quest Diagnostics, the latter for 29 years. He was grateful for the wonderful experiences playing soccer afforded him including the formation of deep friendships across team lines and international borders, visiting many interesting regions of the world, coming to the U.S. and most importantly, meeting his future wife in Ecuador. Always humble about sharing his own accomplishments on the pitch, his friends would nevertheless be quick to share anecdotes about how Pele called him a great player or how he would practice with Bobby Orr to train for their respective sports. His passion for soccer, and sports in general, was exceeded only by his love for his family and friends who greatly admired his keen intelligence, sharp wit, and sweet and generous spirit.

He is survived by his beloved sweetheart and wife of 52 years, Aida M. Ayala (Enriquez) of East Boston.  He is the adored father of Ann Cristina and Scott Macey, Susan and Jarrett Bridge (all of Swampscott) and James Ayala (of East Boston) and the cherished grandfather of Kaitlin and Alexander Macey and Elijah Aramis and Tyler Bridge.   He will also be missed by his dear brothers, Orlando Nelson and Uruguay Mario, as well as his caring cousins, nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his parents, Juan Manuel Ayala and Maria Aurora Genta de Ayala and his brother Omar Manuel all of Uruguay. Interment in Swampscott Cemetery, Swampscott. His family would like to thank Bertram House of Swampscott and Care Dimensions for their care and support during his illness.

Her family celebrates her passing with thanksgiving for a life well lived and an appreciation for her intense intellect, her sharp cutting edge and her passion for living. 5-star restaurants, fine clothes, a cocktail or two, were among her favorite choices in living. “Viva Marvie”!

She is the beloved daughter of the late Andrew J. Procopio Sr. & Catherine M. (Capano) Procopio. The cherished sister of Gloria Torre & Andrew J. Procopio, Jr. & his wife, Marie, all of Revere & the late Pauline Terranova, Jean Angeloni, Mary Alvino, Domenic A., Albert, Anthony, Joseph & John Procopio.
