OBITUARY

Richard Petruccelli

April 29, 1968April 1, 2019

Mr. Richard Petruccelli, 50, of Lynn passed away on Monday, April 1, 2019.

Richard was a lifelong “Lynner” “Bread and Fed” as he would be likely to say. He was the son of the late Joyce Dunnigan Petruccelli.

Richard worked at the Porthole Pub as an experienced bar tender and waiter. He enjoyed working in the Hospitality and restaurant business and his work was his passion.

Richard was an avid Beatles and Jerry Seinfeld fan. Going so far as to name his beloved dog “Lil Jerry”. Richard had a contagious laugh and could bring a smile to your face, no matter what the occasion may be. He referred to himself as a “West Lynner”, he would often say where he grew up with his long time West Lynn friends. Richard will be remembered for his movie quotes and his one liners. One of his favorite one liners was “I hate being a lefty” and of course his famous “laugh and clap” whenever hearing or saying something funny or a simple prank.

Richard is survived by his two brothers David and Anthony Petruccelli both long time Lynn residents. His five beautiful nephews and niece Angelo, Alex, Adam, Myeta and Mikcael.

In addition to his loving mother, Richard was predeceased by his beloved son Brett M. Petruccelli. Richard’s visiting hours will be in the Cuffe-McGinn Funeral Home, 157 Maple St. Lynn on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from 4-6 PM. Funeral Services and Interment will be private.

Anthony and David,
You two and your brother were some of the first people I ever knew! I have soo many memories of Rhodes Ave that include the Petrucelli Family. My deepest sympathies on Rich’s passing. My heart is soo heavy for Rich; life at Rhodes Ave wasn’t always easy for any of us, but I’ve always been hopeful that we’ve all made it through. I know Rich is now at peace and for that I am grateful. Sending you my love, thoughts and prayers. Love your little sister on the second floor.

Dear Richie:

I believe that God was with you as you left this hard life, and I hope that you sensed that. I am truly sorry for your loss, especially for your brothers. You would be so pleased by how they, your family, and your friends are honoring you. Love you nephew, Aunt Barbara

Rich, I'm really going to miss you. You had the ability to find humor in almost any situation. Whenever something struck me funny, I'd reach for the phone to call you because I knew you'd find the humor as well. I'm going to forever reach for the phone and be saddened by the fact you're no longer there to answer. Rest in Peace my dear friend. The world is a sadder place without you.
