Angelo F. Passeri

Funeral Services & Interment were held privately on Thursday, July 8, 2021 at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett for Angelo F. Passeri, who died on Sunday July 4th at the Atrium in Danvers, following a brief illness with Dementia, he was 93 years old.

 Angelo was born in Chelsea to the late Andrew “Tamp” Passeri, Sr. & Mary (Riccio) Passeri and was raised & educated in Revere. Angelo entered the United States Coast Guard on March 13, 1946 and served at the end of World War II until being honorably discharged on June 30, 1947 with the rank of Motor Machinist 3rd Class. After being discharged from the Coast Guard, Angelo attended Wentworth Institute, graduating in 1950. During this time, his future bride waited for Angelo to return and get his education, before they wed. At the direction & foresight of his father, education was instilled in Angelo and he continued onto Northeastern University. He began his professional Career at G. E., then later went to work for AT&T for over 35 years, until his retirement. Angelo & his wife together raised their 4 children in Revere. During this time Angelo instilled in his children the innate core values & morals that he was raised with & lived his life by every day. He was fastidious about his home & his garden where he started all of his plants from seed.  Angelo & his wife lived fiercely independent in Revere until 4 1/2 years ago, before moving to Danvers, where there they were independent and surrounded by the love & support of their family.  Angelo was always a family first man. He took responsibility for his extended family & many elderly relatives. He was a tireless & passionate volunteer member at the Vittori Rocci Post #56 in Beverly & the V.A. Hospital in Bedford. Angelo again gave back by giving his time to those who gave their lives for our country. Above all, Angelo was most proud to be called, “Papa Angelo” by his grandchildren & great-grandchildren.

 He is the dedicated & devoted husband of 72 years to Catherine F. (Thomas) Passeri of Danvers. Loving & proud father of Catherine F. Tacelli of Middleton, Paul F. Passeri & wife Suzanne of Danvers, Marybeth Tobin & husband Daniel of Hamilton, Daniel R. Passeri & wife Jo-Ann of Winchester. Treasured grandfather of Tracy Paulsen of Westwood, Gregory A. Passeri & wife Elisabeth of Danvers, Julianne S. Mitrano & husband Guy of Danvers, Sara Kempf & husband Brendan of Los Angeles, CA, Alyssandra Tobin of Missoula, MT, Mark A. Passeri of Duxbury, Elianna Tobin of San Diego, CA, Daniel Tobin of Hamilton & the late Neal O. Paulsen & his surviving wife Megumi Paulsen of Raleigh, NC. Adored great grandfather of Alyssa, Hank, Andrew, and Viviana. Dear brother of Andrew J. Passeri, Jr. & wife Nancy of Warwick, NY & Richard J. Passeri & wife Estelle of Byfield. He is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews.

    Sending Kay and all the family love. I grew up with my mom and dad (Mamie and Sour)brining me along with Kay and Pass and the whole gang ,he was so kind and gentle. That group knew how to have a fabulous time ,always dancing and singing! I will never forget the movies from the cruise they went on and everyone dressed up in costumes and were goofing around. I also remember a huge walnut tree in the yard with hundreds of nuts everywhere. Such a great ,fun and loving man who will be missed. My deepest Condolences. Love Lisa
