Devoted son, brother, father and grandfather

MELROSE — Cosmo Vellucci was born in Revere on September 27, 1941 to the late Henry and Angelina (Dovidio) Vellucci. He was raised in Peabody and Revere and graduated from Revere High School.

He went to work for the phone company as a technician after graduation and spent 35 years there working his way up first as a foreman and then as a supervisor before eventually becoming an engineer.

He also served his country and community as a proud long-time member of the National Guard. He had been retired for almost 30 years and that allowed him to pursue his many interests and hobbies. He loved to golf, fish and hunt, but most recently enjoyed trap shooting and restoring shotguns and rifles. He especially loved sharing these hobbies with his family including his sons, grandson, cousins and nephews.

Cosmo and his wife Maureen loved to travel with good friends whenever they were able and spent winters at their home in Clearwater, Florida for over 25 years. He was a devoted son, brother, father and grandfather. He cherished his grandchildren, family and friends, and will truly be missed by the many people he loved and cared for.

Cosmo was the beloved husband of the late Maureen E (James) Vellucci. Loving father of Jeffrey J. Vellucci of Saugus and Daniel E. Vellucci of Andover.
