Vincent F. Cammarata, Sr.

Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Wednesday, April 3rd from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Route 107) REVERE for Vincent F. Cammarata, Sr., who passed on Sunday, March 31st with the comfort & presence of his God and his devoted & faithful family surrounding him. Vincent’s funeral will be conducted from the funeral home, on Thursday, April 4th at 9:00 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 670 Washington Ave., REVERE at 10:00 a.m., followed by interment in Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody.

Born & raised briefly in South Boston, the family migrated to Toscano Avenue, Revere. Little did Vincent realize that he was home for the rest of his long and full life within the emerging City of Revere. He would become an alumnus of Revere High School in 1942. In February of 1944, he joined the U.S. Navy during World War II. He served with honor and dignity (The hallmark of his life) on board the U.S.S. LST 308. On April 15, 1946, he was discharged & released to the abundanza of love that awaited him on Toscano Ave. in Revere. He was discharged with the rank of Ship Fitter-2nd Class and was the recipient of the World War II Victory Medal, European African Middle Eastern Medal with one bronze star, American Area Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Medal & a Commendation by the C.O. He would speak about his service-time only as of late, perhaps during the last the year of his life. This indeed was another example of the intrinsic humility and dignity that ruled Vincent’s life. Vincent’s time at Revere’s Board of Health is legendary. Legendary because of the continued respect that his name invokes. He was brilliant in the management of the countless number of complaints the Board would receive. The late Anna Flynn, Secretary to the Board, of happy remembrance, would often tell of the perfect patience that Vincent would execute in the resolutions of the daily drama & problems. His time as a senior code enforcement inspector for the Revere Board of Health spanned over 18 years. His life was dedicated to civic activities, politics and community involvement. He served as a member of the Revere Park Commission & was on the fund-raising committee for the former Revere Hospital. His life included a term as a Revere School Committeeman from 1960-1963. He served a 15-year term with the Revere Conservation Committee and retired 2 years ago at the age of 93. Vincent gave to the city of Revere, a 45-year span of service and unparalleled dedication in the field of political & community service. He was also a very active member of St. Mary’ s Holy Name Society. He maintained a membership as the senior member of the Revere Knights of Columbus #179 for over 40 years. His family were among the founders and builders of the first St. Mary’s, which was then called St. Lucy’s Church. Through the expertise and comradery, with his cousin Vincent “Sonny” Cammarata, they were able to establish a committee to create and organize the new St. Lucy’s Chapel. Again, the Cammarata family were instrumental in the establishment of the Pietrapezzia Lodge OSIA, Lodge 491. Pietrapezzia is a village located off the coast of Italy on the island of Sicily from whence the Cammarata family immigrated to America. On July 10th, 2004, the love of Vinny’s life, his wife, Lucy M. (Ribaudo), passed unexpectedly. The loss was great to the entire family, but especially to Vinny.

He is the devoted father of Dr. Salvatore L. Cammarata & his wife Barbara A. of Lynnfield, John V. Cammarata of Revere & his former wife Paula Magliochetti of North Andover, Rosemary S. Pisani & her husband Paul F. of Lynnfield & Vincent F. Cammarata, Jr. & his wife Grail of Fairport, NY. Dear brother of the late Theresa L. Cammarata & Rocco J. Cammarata & his late wife Antonetta. Cherished grandfather to Jason V. Cammarata & wife Liz, Paul F. Pisani, Jr. & wife Catherine, Erich J. Cammarata, Damian V. Pisani & his wife Lisa, Anthony P. Pisani & his girlfriend Vanessa Molle, Sarah E. Cammarata & her boyfriend Chris Lewis, Tessabella M. Cammarata & Zoe E. Cammarata. Beloved great grandfather “Pano” to Olivia, Anthony & Gia Pisani. He is also lovingly survived by a proud family of nieces, nephews & cousins.

    Beautiful tribute to a beautiful man. So sorry to hear of you Dad’s passing. I remember his gentle and kind presence growing up in the neighborhood with your family. I can see his quiet smile and few but wise words that he would bring to any situation we found ourselves in. Great memories of a wonderful family I am thankful to have known. My sympathy to all who loved him so. May your special memories always bring you the warmth of his love.

    Heartbreakingly he had to go

    Sal, Rosemary, Johnny & Vinny,
    So sorry to hear about your Dad. He was such a “gentle”man and always had kind words for everyone. I remember all the times he & your Mom were at my parent’s house, and when we were younger we spent Christmas Eve up their house, what great times. He will be missed by all. Glad he’s with your Mom now, he missed her so much. Much love to all of you, God Bless all of you.

    May the Lord Bless Vin and the Cammarata family. Vin was a truly wonderful man and gentleman, possessing a heart of gold and true sincerity. He was a great friend despite our age difference. I will always remember with fondness when several of us from St. Mary’s Holy Name Society visited him a couple of months ago. He was so happy to be together as we laughed, talked, and enjoyed each other’s company. It was a great evening. Rest In Peace cousin Vinny. You are forever in my heart.
    Steve Fielding
