Raffaele Addonizio

Funeral services were held privately on Saturday, July 6th in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals for Raffaele Addonzio, who died on Tuesday, July 2nd at the Cambridge Health Alliance – Everett Hospital, following a long illness. He was 77 years old.

Raffaele was born & raised in Mirabella Eclano, Italy. He came to the United States in the early 1970s, settling in Boston’s North End. He worked various jobs in the beginning, then the family opened La Casa Mia in the North End, where he worked for many years. After becoming married, he and his wife, Lorraine settled in Revere, where together they began their family. He and his brother later began their own Plastering business named Addonozio Plastering. Raffaele was a hard & dedicated worker and his priority was always his family. He was forced to stop working due to his failing health. Unfortunately, due to his strong work ethic and his inability to do what he loved, he suffered from depression. He will always be remembered for being a loving husband, father, brother & friend. He enjoyed making homemade wine and he did it with much love and enthusiasm. He was a fan of soccer and boxing.

He is the devoted husband of 32 years to Lorraine R. (Beard) Addonizio of Revere. Loving father of Alysia M. Addonizio & her companion Paolo Correa, all of Revere & Edgar W.
