He was 65 years old. A funeral service will be conducted in the funeral home following the visitation at 7:15 p.m. Interment will be held privately.

Martin was born & raised in East Boston’s Jeffries Point section. The well-known family resided on Webster Street for decades and was well associated with the Jeffries Yacht Club. Marty is an alumnus of St. Dominic Savio Boys Preparatory High School in East Boston. Later, he furthered his education at Northeastern University where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Marty married Judy R. (Malcolm) Millerick & together they shared 42 years of marriage. The couple resided in Revere and later settled in Winthrop, together, where they raised their family. Marty worked at Bethlehem Steel Shipyard in East Boston for almost 20 years as a Logistics Supervisor. Due to his nature & love for his family, he worked a second job to further provide for them at Federal Express at Logan International Airport in the Heavy Weight Division for well over 10 years. He later took a position at M.I.T. Lincoln Laboratory. Marty rose to the ranks of General Supervisor of the Facilities Department, where he was currently still actively working. Marty was dealing with some health issues, but was always courageous and optimistic. Some of Marty’s favorite past times were being with his children and his brothers. In his younger years, he would often be bouncing on the waters of Boston Harbor and the Islands. He had fascination for history and enjoyed learning new things. He was known best of his intellect and humorous personality. He will be missed by many and always be remembered as a man always willing to help out a friend. His very wise and dear mother would often be heard using a quote, “pray for a peaceful death”. Marty’s prayers were answered. He is now in heaven with his parents, brothers and sister.

He is the devoted son of the late Edward C. Millerick & Imelda (Almond) Millerick. Dear husband of Judith R. “Judy” (Malcolm) Millerick. Loving father of Robert K. Millerick, Ryan C. Millerick, all of Peabody, Jennifer L. Millerick – Smith & husband Frank and Nicole D. Doyle & husband Patrick, all of Danvers. Cherished brother of Gerard E. Millerick & wife Deborah and Peter D. Millerick, all of East Boston and the late Lorraine T. Nazzaro, Edward A. Millerick & Richard J. Millerick. Adored grandfather of Lexi N. Millerick, Griffin Doyle, Chase Doyle & an expecting Wesley J. Smith. He is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, loving cousins and many extended family & friends.

    I worked for and with Marty for 30 + years at Lincoln Lab. During those years, he had a great influence on me. A man that told it like it was. He was a straight shooter and I’ll always respect him for that. Never one to beat around the bush.

    My condolences to his Family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless your soul Marty. I’m going to miss you my friend!!

    So very sorry for your loss. Marty was our neighbor in Winthrop. He was such a nice guy. A few yrs back, during one of the snow storms he crossed the street with his snow blower to help me with my driveway. He was a huge help and I will ever forget that. We will miss seeing his smiling face. God Bless.
