Carl Vitagliano Obituary

Carl R. Vitagliano, age 95, passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 4. 

Beloved husband of the late June (Mirra) Vitagliano.  Loving father of Jill McCaughey and her husband Brad of Rockland, Gary Vitagliano and his wife Kim of Braintree and the late Carla Ambrose.  Brother to the late Donald Vitagliano and sister Marianna Vitagliano of Randolph.  Dear grandfather to Jaime McCaughey of Dorchester and Hannah McCaughey of Quincy.  

Carl was a long serving member of the Braintree Fire Department, attaining the rank of Chief prior to his retirement.  He served in the United States Marine Corps during WWII.  Carl was a proud member of many clubs and organizations including the Sons of Italy, The American Legion Post 86, the Men’s Club of Braintree and a past member of the International and Mass. Fire Chiefs. 

Carl and June loved to travel and celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary aboard the Norwegian Spirit cruise to Bermuda.  They also visited many places together, including the Panama Canal, Alaska, the Caribbean, Baltic capitals, Spain, and Portugal as well as a 14-day trip to China and Hong Kong. 

Carl was incredibly independent which allowed him to participate in his favorite activities, including his long-standing weekly poker game with the boys and weekly breakfasts at Stanney’s in Holbrook with his sister and grandchildren.

Honoring his wishes, services are private.  Funeral arrangements under the direction of McMaster Funeral Home, 86 Franklin Street, Braintree.
