Family & friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Thursday, July 12th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Route 107), REVERE for Salvatore J. “Sammy” Capizzi, Jr., who passed unexpectedly on Monday, July 2nd at his residence in Boston’s North End. The Funeral Service will be conducted following the visitation at 11:15 a.m., and immediately followed by interment in Lakeside Cemetery, Wakefield.

Born & raised in Boston’s North End, he attended schools there. “Sammy”, as he was affectionately known, was a care-giver to all, but especially his Mom. His friends & family have regaled with stories and events that “Sammy” was the main character in coming to the aid of his friends and acquaintances. However, it is agreed that he would want to be remembered for the special and extraordinary care he was able to give his Mom. His sisters are both proud and comforted that “Sammy” took on the role of senior care-giver and has brought his Mom to the most notable age of 94 years (ninety-four).

“Sammy” is the beloved & devoted son to Gladys (Boardman) Capizzi & the late Salvatore J. Capizzi, Sr., of Boston’s North End. He is the cherished brother to Gladys “Joan” Green & her companion, Arthur Kyriakidis & Louise Morani, all of Quincy, Shirley R. Capizzi-Anderson & her companion, Alan B. Segal of Revere, Gale Deuterio & her companion, Paul Deuterio of No. Reading, Sonja Harrison & her companion, James Coakley of Malden & the late Michael Capizzi. “Sammy” is also lovingly survived by several aunts, uncles & many nieces, nephews, cousins & a large extended family.
