WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! STAY SAFE! Vol.29, No.20 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday State, city plan slow and cautious reopening By Barbara Taormina W ith new cases of COVID-19 on a steady decline, Revere is starting to look ahead to reopening the city and the local economy. Mayor Brian Arrigo held a virtual town hall on YouTube this week to explain the plan for reopening the city. Board of Health Chair Dr. Nathalee Kong added a medical and health perspective to the plan and licensed social worker Kate Moore off ered some information and advice on coping with the emotional aspects of COVID-19. Arrigo said he has formed a team to look at reopening the city with guidance from the state, which will begin a fourphase reopening on Monday, May 18. “But our plan will be customized by our policies, our statistics as a local community and what works for us,” said Arrigo. Like Governor Charlie Baker’s plan for the state, the initial reopening will involve a limited number of industries operating with tight restrictions on social distancing, face masks, handwashing and other protective measures to keep workers safe. Moving forward, phases two, three and four, which will expand industries and businesses allowed to reopen, will depend on continued progress containing the virus, which will be refl ected in the data. “I don’t want to sugarcoat it, it’s going to be a painfully slow process,” said Arrigo, adding that people will have to get comfortable wearing face masks and social distancing. The team working on reopening had two forums, one in English and another in Spanish, scheduled with local business owners this week. Listening sessions are also being planned. Arrigo said a second team is working on ideas to engage young people and plans to have some meaningful sumCOVID-19 | SEE PAGE 12 As the weather gets nicer, city offi cials are working on a plan to keep Revere Beach safe this summer. (Advocate Photo by JD Mitchell) By Barbara Taormina D uring this week’s virtual town hall, which focused on reopening the city, a resident called in to ask about Revere Beach and how the city plans to keep residents safe during the summer as the beach becomes more of a tourist attraction. “It’s a great question, and one that we’re working on every day as the weather gets nicer,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “We’re in constant communication with our partners at the state level around the beach and around how we can make sure everyone has a safe summer this year.” Arrigo said that if people begin congregating in small crowds and ignoring orders on social distancing and wearing face masks, the city government may have to step in. “There may have to be additional measures that we’ll have to take,” said Arrigo. Still, it’s diffi cult to imagine what additional steps the city could take. At the end of March, Arrigo was at the beach in the mobile city hall van with a bullhorn telling everyone about the imporBEACH | SEE PAGE 13 GoFundMe page set up for victims of Loring Road Mother’s Day blaze By Tara Vocino * Mulching * Spring Clean-ups * Trimming & Maintenance NOW BOOKING NEW CUSTOMERS!

Marcinowski, who has ties to Revere, was inspired by the idea which honored those who died and, at the same time, gave them a fi nal role in helping to rehabilitate a marine ecosystem. He also saw a unique opportunity to honor recently deceased vets. Marcinowski recast the idea and launched Veterans Memorial Reef, a 160-acre site located fi ve miles off the coast of Carolina Beach/Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina where he plans to place the fi rst sections of the reef during the weekend before Veterans Day this November. The reef will be built with 2000-pound concrete domes, or markers, with holes on all sides to allow fi sh and water to fl ow in and out. Families can mix their loved one’s ashes into the concrete or place then in an urn inside the dome. Each marker will have a name plate and families can add personal touches such as statuettes, inscribed messages or handprints. The markers will be lowered about 40 feet down and placed on the ocean fl oor where, Marcinowski said they will begin boosting marine life by accelerating the growth of coral and forming a reef that will provide a habitat for thousands of species of fi sh and sea creatures. In a sense, veterans will live on as part of a dynamic marine ecosystem. VETERANS | SEE PAGE 7

A Malden native, he grew up in the neighborhood behind the Moose Lodge on the east side of the city. A member of the Malden High Class of 1987, Marcinowski knew early on he was headed for the U.S. Air Force. His accounting teacher told him that he was wasting his life by joining the military. She tried to sell him on a career with spread sheets and ledgers, but Marcinowski wasn’t having any of it. “I was able to enlist in the Air Force with my parents’ permission when I was 16 in program known as Delayed Entry ProAUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Is your vehicle ready for the Spring Season?!!

Homeowners Peter, left, and Kristina Cimino, far right, talk with the State Fire Marshal – the fi re’s cause was found to be careless disposal of smoking material between the two damaged houses at 19-21 Loring Rd. last Friday afternoon. ASHES | FROM PAGE 1 ing Material’ on the exterior between the two damaged buildings,” Fire Captain Mark Wolfgang wrote in an e-mail. Naturally, Cimino was devastated, but she was thankful that it wasn’t worse. “I’m still in shock,” Cimino said, wiping away tears. “I’m glad all the pets and everyone got out safely.” She was glad that her children – Ryleigh Cimino, 7, Benjamin Caggiano, 2 – and dogs Harley and Tessie and cats George and Henry and bird Roona are okay, but it was tough to see the back of the house that she called home for 35 years, with her mother, Claire’s, and sister, Hollie’s, ashes inside. Next door neighbor Kevin Mallett, whose two-family house at 19 Loring Rd. had side damage/broken windows, but is still livable, said he doesn’t smoke, but some of his roommates do. “I’m glad everyone is okay,” Mallett said, who didn’t see anyone throw the cigarettes. “But I feel badly for our neighbors, who lost their home.” Approximately an hour and a half later, Henry, the cat, emerged from under a car, and it was an emotional reunion. Harley, the dog, was across the street in the neighbor’s yard when he came out to drink from the fi refi ghters’ hose water. Witness Doug Struck was watching the blaze from across the street at St. George Condominiums when, he said, big, black smoke curled around the building, causing poor visibility. He walked over to Loring Road to see it in action.

MASKS | FROM PAGE 3 as May fl owers and sunshine. But for the foreseeable future, only our eyes will reveal our happiness as we slowly return to stores and restaurants and small public gatherings. Bright smiles will remain hidden behind masks. We can expect that many of the restrictions to which we have grown accustomed will be the norm as previouslyclosed businesses ease back into operation. The six-foot separation from others, a cap on the number of people in stores and shops, check-out counters separated from customers by plexiglass – all those measures that helped Massachusetts fi nally “fl atten the curve” likely will be standard practice until medical science devises an answer to the contagious, deadly Covid-19 virus. And masks will be a protective fashion statement. The statistical proof of Covid-19’s devastating invasion is persuasive evidence that any measure of protection is a wise action. Massachusetts reported its fi rst Covid-19 death on Friday, March 20. Barely 50 days later, the death toll in our Commonwealth passed 5,200. Similarly, as recently as March 12, just over 100 people had tested positive for the virus across Massachusetts. By the time you read this, Massachusetts will surpass 80,000 confi rmed cases. By any measure, that is terrifying information. While a mask is no guarantee of safety, it is a valuable layer of protection. The federal Center for Disease Control has made it plainly clear that a mask or covering over the nose and mouth can help prevent people who MASKS | SEE PAGE 13

Parks and Recreation Director Michael Hinojosa said the Moroccan American Cultural Connection in Revere donated the first thousand, while the city bought 3,500 masks in its fi rst week of inception. As part of Mask Up May, Governor Charlie Baker requires residents to wear a face covering in public. A limited supply of masks is available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday, at RMA.

He now works as a certifi ed physicians assistant in Wilmington, N.C. Marcinowski founded the non-profi t Veterans Memorial Reef Foundation last May and has since been working with friends Joe Irrera and Alex Cupernall to put all the pieces of the project in place. “We put a lot of sweat and tears into this,” he said. “We want to do good and give something back.” Although Marcinowski said every veteran who served honorably should be recognized, he is particularly concerned about homeless vets who may not have family to arrange funerals and memorials. “No vet should go unrecognized,” he added. “If you wore boots, you have family.” Unlike cemeteries, which can be cold and unwelcoming, the hope is the reef will be a living memorial not just for marine life, but also for families and friends. Marcinowski said there is a military tradition of cracking open a beer at a buddy’s grave site and pouring it into the ground to share and remember. He said he can see that same tradition playing out from the deck of a boat. Eventually, he hopes there will be opportunities for diving, snorkeling and fi shing tournaments. The Veterans Memorial Reef website will include the names and short biographies of each vet along with their military awards.

And Arrigo said Superintendent Dr. Dianne Kelly is also looking at what it will take to open city schools in the fall. “We have had a drastic reduction of new cases each day,” said Kong. “That’s all the proof you need to know that social distancing, handwashing and staying at home is working.” Kong said she likes the state’s plan to open gradually while continually to track new cases of COVID-19, the number of hospitalizations and the number of patients in intensive care units. “During the first phase, we are slowly going to allow certain sectors of certain industries to resume operations under severe restrictions,” she said. “One might be limiting capacity; another might be more handwashing stations.” If the numbers look good, the city will move on to phase The Veterans Memorial Reef will be built with concrete domes or markers that commemorate the life and service of individual veterans. taining the project.

Kong said if there is a second wave of COVID-19 infections, as many have predicted, there may be a second shutdown. She said the city is relying of people to be tested when appropriate and said all Revere residents can be tested for free at the East Boston Health Center at Suff olk Downs. But Kong said test results will only tell people whether they have the virus when the test is taken. Someone can test negative and stop at a grocery store on the way home and become infected. “A negative test result doesn’t mean you’re immune; you’re still at risk,” she said. “Every day brings about a new risk for potential exposure.” Moore, the director of emergency services at North Suff olk Mental Health, said the virus is taking a toll on the emotional and mental health of many resito make a donation to help a vet in need, go to http://vetsmemorialreef.org/. dents. She said that fear, anxiety, depression and diffi culty sleeping are common among people she sees. “We don’t have answers,” said Moore. “This is not affecting one group or one population.” Moore, who works at the Quality Inn, which has been temporarily dedicated to patients who are quarantining and recovering from COVID-19, said the youngest patient is nine months, the oldest is 96 and the patients represent all races, ethnicities and religions. “People have questions about how long this will continue,” said Moore. “There’s anxiety that there isn’t a cure or an end to the virus in sight.” Staff is available to help patients at the Inn, but Moore said she worries about people who are isolating at home and worrying about jobs, fi nances and the future. “The anxieties people are feeling are very real,” she said.

It is worth repeating that Covid-19 spreads person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is a BEACH | FROM PAGE 1 tance of social distancing. He also told beachgoers that they would be a lot safer if they just stayed home. On April 2, Governor Charlie Baker issued an emergency order aimed at limiting crowds and containing the virus at state parks and beaches, including Revere Beach. The order prohibits all sitting, sunbathing and stationary recreational activities. Athletic and recreational activities that bring players into close contact with one another are also prohibited. And the parking lane along the ocean side of Revere Beach Boulevard is closed as well as beach parking lots. At the beginning of this month, Arrigo joined volunteers who set up tables at the beach to hand out bags with face masks, gloves and alcohol wipes to beachgoers. It took less than an hour to distribute 1,000 bags with the protective gear. “The weather hasn’t been that great lately so there haven’t been a lot of people at the beach,” said Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna. According to McKenna, people who were at the beach last week were moving along and there weren’t any groups or crowds. “Some people were wearing masks, some weren’t,” she said. “It depends on the people.” Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky usually drives along the beach every day. Like McKenna, he has seen people moving along, and while a lot of people were wearing face masks, there are still people ignoring Baker’s order requiring some type of face covering when entering public and private buildings and in outdoor spaces if social distancing isn’t always possible. “I would say about 60 permedical fact that a person can be infected with Covid-19 and yet experience no symptoms. Equate the respiratory droplets of an infected person to a lethal weapon. A symptom-free infected person is like a sniper randomly fi ring a weapon into a crowd. When you wear a mask, you cent of the people were wearing face masks,” said Novoselsky, adding that he didn’t see much congregating or multi-person gatherings. “All we can do is advise people,” said Novoselsky. “The mayor is doing his best with the beach and he’s doing a great job.” The councillors also said that a lot of people who go to the beach aren’t residents of Revere. And while shutting down parking has made things a little better, it’s not hard for out-of-town visitors to fi nd a parking spot on a side street and walk a few blocks to the beach. “People need an outlet and the beach is their outlet,” said McKenna. “I have my yard for an outlet but people in apartments don’t have yards.” Arrigo said reopening the city and relaxing restrictions will require a careful and measured approach. “I certainly don’t want to see any scenes at the beach that we may have seen over the past couple of years. The great pictures I’ve seen recently of the sand sculpting festival, where you see hundreds of thousands of people down at the beach – I don’t think that’s going to be a reality this year,” he said. Some people believe that it might not be a reality for several years, but not McKenna. “It takes a while, but I think it’s just going to be a matter of time,” she said, predicting that a year from now face masks and social distancing will be nothing more than a bad memory. “We have a lot of brilliant people working together on this,” she said. In the meantime, Arrigo said, his top priority is keeping residents of Revere healthy and safe. “We’re going to look at every option to make sure the beach is a safe place,” he said. help protect your family, the people you encounter when you go for a walk, and the essential workers who have kept food on our tables, gasoline in our autos, and provide medical care for all. Covid-19’s dangerous potential is as true today as it was in March. Covid-19 will not take a break as the warm weather arrives. Do not regard the opening of businesses as a signal that the virus is any less a threat. It is as contagious and virulent as ever. In fact, as restrictions are loosened and businesses reopen to the public, it is even more imperative that we strictly observe protective practices. Keep in mind, the number of infecGIANNELLI tions and deaths in Massachusetts since March accumulated with drastic controls imposed on society. Many businesses were closed and everyone was advised to stay home specifi - cally to slow the virus spread. The carnage that might have occurred without those drastic measures is unthinkable. We now have a good grasp of how to control the spread: keep your distance from others, wash your hands, clean and disinfect surfaces, stay home when possible. And wear a mask in public. Those measures will be tested more than ever as society and business gets rolling again. If we disregard the precautions that we know will work, we will certainly imperil ourselves and our families. In Revere, we have made it a point to make sure our residents have a mask. Anyone can drive or walk up to the Rumney Marsh Academy between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and obtain a mask. Or you can sign up for a mask at www.revere.org/coronavirus and we will make sure a mask is delivered to you. Yes, we have reason to smile as we carefully start to resume a life that includes regular work hours, shopping, dining in restaurants, church services, haircuts and more. But let’s keep those smiles hidden behind a mask for the foreseeable future. Our eyes can tell the story.

Page 14 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 15, 2020 Westport) said the Baker administration and the Legislature joined together in a bipartisan manner to move the tax fi ling date and agreed on a way to pay the state’s bills despite what will be a sharp temporary dip in the state’s revenues from April 15 to July 15. THE HOUSE AND SENATE: The House fi nally agreed on the details of changing the House rules in order to hold a remote session during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then it made history last week when it held the fi rst remote session with just a few members in the House chamber while most members watched and listened to the debate on their computers and voted via phone from the comfort of their own homes or business offi ces. The Senate continued to hold its sessions with just a handful of senators present but agreed on rules changes that will allow it to hold a remote session the week of May 11. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ votes on one roll call from the week of May 4-8. There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. ALLOW THE STATE TO BORROW BILLIONS OF DOLLARS (H 4677) House 157-0 approved, and Senate approved on a voice vote without a roll call approved a bill that would authorize the state treasurer to borrow billions of dollars needed to keep the state running through June because of diminishing tax revenues during COVID-19. State tax collections dropped in April by more than $2.3 billion compared to April 2019. The loss is attributed to the reduced income tax revenue since the Bay State moved the tax return fi ling deadline from April 15 to July 15 and to the loss of sales tax and other revenue as a result of business shutdowns. The bill still needs fi nal approval in both branches prior to it going to the governor for his signature. Supporters said they anticipate the borrowing could reach $3 billion in order to keep the state fi nancially afl oat. They said the state is obligated to pay its bills and has no other choice. Senate Ways and Means chair Sen. Mike Rodrigues (DCOVID-19 | FROM PAGE 12 Moore said North Suffolk Mental Health has diff erent resources and programs available, and she urged people who feel they need help to reach out. The announcement that a plan to reopen the city is in the works was, no doubt, welcome “The Legislature and the administration agreed to engage in what is called … RANs — Revenue Anticipation Notes,” said Rodrigues. “Meaning that we are going to borrow in fi scal 2020 in anticipation of revenue coming in in fi scal year 2021 the amount of money that was deferred or estimated to have been deferred by the movement of the tax fi ling date.” (A “Yes” vote is for the borrowing). Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent Ye s Ye s HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of May 4-8, the House met for a total of fi ve hours and 39 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and three minutes. Mon.

However, Arrigo and Kong stressed that success depends on people continuing with social distancing, face masks and handwashing. “I know things are trending in the right direction, and that’s a testament to the work we’ve done with social distancing, face masks and all the sacrifi ces we’ve made,” said Arrigo, adding that the city doesn’t want to undo all the good work that’s been done. Arrigo said the city needs to take a responsible approach to reopening that is slow, deliberate and cautious. “We are not going to get a second chance at doing this right,” he said. ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...Nicely maintained 6+ rm.

Dear Savvy Senior, Do currently off ered vaccines against pneumonia provide seniors any protection against the coronavirus disease? I’ve always been bad about getting vaccinated, but this coronavirus pandemic is causing me to change my thinking. Pro-Vax Patty Dear Patty, This is a great question. Because the coronavirus (COVID-19) attacks the lungs and respiratory system, many readers have asked whether the pneumonia vaccines, which are administered to millions of patients each year, might protect someone if they contract the coronavirus. But unfortunately, the answer is no. Vaccines against pneumonia, such as pneumococcal vaccine and Haemophilus infl uenza type B vaccine, do not provide protection against the new coronavirus. This virus is so new and different that it needs its own vaccine. Researchers are in the process of rapidly developing a vaccine against COVID-19, but it is expected to take at least a year before it’s ready. Having said that, you should also know that there are several other important vaccines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all seniors should get up to date on after the coronavirus pandemic dies down. Here’s a rundown of what they are, when you should get them, and how they’re covered by Medicare. Flu vaccine: While annual flu shots are recommended each fall to everyone, they are very important for older adults to get because seniors have a much greater risk of developing dangerous fl u complications. According to the CDC, last year up to 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died because of the fl u – most of whom were age 65 and older. To improve your chances of escaping the seasonal fl u, this September or October consider a vaccine specifi cally designed for people 65 and older. The Fluzone High Dose or FLUAD are the two options that provide extra protection beyond what a standard fl u shot off ers. And all fl u shots are covered under Medicare Part B. Pneumococcal vaccine: As previously stated, this vaccine protects against pneumonia, which hospitalizes around 250,000 Americans and kills about 50,000 each year. It’s recommended that all seniors, 65 or older, get two separate vaccines – PCV13 (Prevnar 13) and PPSV23 (Pneumovax 23). Both vaccines, which are administered one year apart, protect against diff erent strains of the bacteria to provide maximum protection. Medicare Part B covers both shots if they are taken at least a year apart. Shingles vaccine: Caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox, shingles is a painful, blistering skin rash that aff ects more than 1 million Americans every year. All people over age 50 should get the new Shingrix vaccine, which is given in two doses, two to six months apart. Even if you’ve already had shingles, you should still get this vaccination because reoccurring cases are possible. The CDC also recommends that anyone previously vaccinated with Zostavax be revaccinated with Shingrix because it’s signifi cantly more eff ective. All Medicare Part D prescription drug plans cover shingles vaccinations, but coverage amounts, and reimbursement rules vary depending on where the shot is given. Check your plan. Tdap vaccine: A one-time dose of the Tdap vaccine, which covers tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) is recommended to all adults. If you’ve already had a Tdap shot, you should get a tetanus-diphtheria (Td) booster shot every 10 years. All Medicare Part D prescription drug plans cover these vaccinations. Other vaccinations: Depending on your health conditions, preferences, age and future travel schedule, the CDC offers a “What Vaccines Do You Need?” quiz at www2.CDC.gov/nip/adultimmsched to help you determine what additional vaccines may be appropriate for you. You should also talk to your doctor during your next visit about which vaccinations you should get. To locate a site that off ers any of these vaccines, visit VaccineFinder.org and type in your location. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 15, 2020 Page 15 OBITUARIES George Anzuoni F ormer President Of Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company George Sydney Anzuoni of Plymouth, Massachusetts passed away on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at the age of 94. After several months of declining health, George died less than 1 month following the loss of his beloved wife of 70 years, Barbara Anzuoni, who passed away on April 7. George was born in Revere on September 20, 1925, to George Anzuoni and Philomena (Petillo) Anzuoni. The fourth child in a family of eight, he was the brother of Richard W. Anzuoni, Sr. of Lynnfi eld, Maryann Shaff er of Lynnfi eld, and the late Rose Baldini, James, Albert, Lawrence, and John Anzuoni. George grew up a block from his father’s family business, Service Bus Line in Revere, where he and his brothers and sisters helped out learning many skills while developing a strong work ethic along with commitment to serving family, employees, colleagues and community. He left home at age 14 to attend Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. After graduating, he enlisted in the US Army Air Corps 49th Fighter Control Squadron in 1943 during World War ll. He served in the Asian Pacifi c Theater Campaign, stationed in New Guinea in the Southern Philippines. At the end of his service he returned, enrolling at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where he earned a degree as an Industrial Engineer and met his future wife, Barbara, who worked at the campus bookstore. Immediately upon his graduation, despite receiving a lucrative job off er, he immediately returned to work at Service Bus Line at his father’s request. Together with his father and his brothers, the family grew their business into a regional transportation and tourism system, whose portfolio over the years included Service Bus Line, Malden Transit, Saugus Transit, Everett Transit, Dowling Acceptance Agency, Brush Hill Transportation, McGinn Bus Company, Brush Hill Auto Body, Capeway Tours, Downtown Travel Service and Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company, with George holding various offi cer positions for each endeavor. A turning point in his life occurred when his father sent his brother Albert and him to Plymouth after acquiring Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company in 1948 in anticipation of the Old Colony Rail’s impending closure. He eventually succeeded Albert and became its President, growing the company exponentially from a local transit service to a thriving passenger bus system that contributed to the economic development of the South Shore with its daily service to Boston. He eventually extended its route system to include Logan Airport and Cape Cod. Following in his father’s footprints, he also employed all his children in the business and actively served as the president until transferring his stock and retiring last July at the age of 93. George was dedicated to supporting both the community and the industry. Throughout his career, he was elected to local leadership positions, some of which included the Plymouth Finance Committee, Associated Industries of Massachusetts, President of the Plymouth Kiwanis Club, Trustee of Plimoth Plantation, member of St. Peter’s Parish Finance Committee, President of the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce, and the fi rst recipient of the Peter Chapman Award, to name a few. He was an active member of the American Bus Association, the United Motorcoach Association, and served as past president of both the New England Bus Association and New England Passenger Transportation Association. He received numerous awards from these associations for his contributions to the industry. George enjoyed boating, fishing, and golfi ng with family and friends. He was a longstanding member of the Plymouth Yacht Club and a lifetime member of the Plymouth Country club, proudly holding the fi rst tee time on Sunday mornings with his close friend, Ruez. He loved a parade, whether watching them or participating in them. He served as Sargent of the Ancient & Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts, to which he was admitted in 1959. He looked forward to marching in their annual June Day parade each year in Boston. His friends, associates, colleagues, and family remember George as a kind, respectful man of high integrity, a good leader, with a steady manner and helpful demeanor. He will be greatly missed. He was the devoted husband of the late Barbara Anzuoni. George was the beloved father of George Stephen Anzuoni and his wife Tina of Winthrop, Carol Anzuoni and her late husband Dennis Nelson of Hanover, Christopher Anzuoni and his wife Nancy of Plymouth and the late Helen Anzuoni of Lake Tahoe. He was the proud grandfather of Brandon, Nicole, Shannon and Alexander Anzuoni and the beloved uncle of numerous nieces and nephews. Services will be private due to current regulations surrounding the Coronavirus. Contributions in George’s memory may be made to St. Peter’s Parish, 10 Memorial Drive, Plymouth, MA 02360.
