I met Connie while working as an engineer on a utility project on Kirkland Dr. He quickly became my favorite part of the job. I enjoyed his stories, optimism, and company. Always have felt grateful to have known him.

I met Connie 5 months ago when I started working at BrightView and he stole my heart! You could immediately tell how proud he was of his children and grand children as he told many stories of his family. I so enjoyed listening about his amazing life ...such a distinguished man and of course an avid Red Sox fan! He’s always had the Red Sox on when I came in to give him his medications . He would let me know how good or bad we were doing that night ! I feel blessed that I knew Connie even if it was for such a short time. God bless you Connie! You will be missed !

My deepest sympathy to Aunt Barbara and to my cousins. One of my fondest memories of Uncle Connie was an afternoon skating at PA’s rink. I was maybe 8 or 10, I don’t recall. I had no idea he was (or became) president of the Skating Club, but I do remember what a beautiful skater he was, banking curves with perfect crossovers. I never learned to skate so well, but his was the form I strived to achieve.

I also remember staying at the house in Andover when I was four years old, when my mother was in the hospital birthing Ann. Cocoa Puffs for breakfast, which we never had at home, is my most indelible memory of that long-ago visit, but also the non-stop jokes and teasing by my uncle. He was
... always the life of the party, the person who made everyone shriek or groan with laughter.

His was a life well lived. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Love,
Jeanne

Uncle Connie taught me a lot about sports,fair play,and toughness. Always felt safe around him and family. Wish my aunt and family all the best and share in their loss. We will miss him.

I got to know Connie and Barbara while I worked at Brightview. I could spend hours in his room listening to stories about his grandchildren, his children, his wife, and his passions for history and sports. And most importantly, the jokes he loved to tell. He truly was the most compassionate and selfless person I have met. He brought so much joy and positivity to everyone he talked to. May he Rest In Peace.

He truly was one of the most selfless and compassionate people I have ever met. I will always remember the positive light he shed on everyone he talked to. May he Rest In Peace.
