Obituary of William Tricomi
William “Tric” Tricomi, beloved husband, father, friend, and contractor, passed away peacefully at home with his family by his bedside on Monday, November 28th, 2022. He was 65 years old. William came into this world on his terms, in an elevator at Newton Wellesley Hospital, and continued to live his life on his terms and in his distinct style. He was the son of Nicholas and Anna Tricomi. He had a wonderful childhood growing up in Belmont, MA. He graduated from Belmont High School in 1974 and went to work with a roofing company. It didn’t take long for him to become a foreman on a roofing crew. After 10 years, he decided he wanted to have his own company, so he obtained his contractor’s license and established Tricomi Remodeling. He was a perfectionist and incredibly hardworking. He was straightforward, truthful, and often could guide his clients to the best designs with his honest expertise. He had loyal customers that spanned generations.
Tric was a man with duality, he was a tough guy on the outside but was always the first to make a baby laugh. He was kind, deeply generous, and would do anything for family or friends. He met his wife, Tina, when she was a clerk at a drugstore in 1981. He was a true gentleman throughout their courtship. They married in 1987 and have made their home in Burlington, MA ever since. They had four healthy children together, three daughters, Danielle, Valerie, and Nicole, and one son, Nicholas. He built his family a loving and warm home which was the backdrop to many wonderful memories. He was always excited to open his home to friends and family for any and all celebrations, whether it was a holiday, sleepover, graduation party, senior skip day, or backyard wedding. He loved a good road trip, no matter how far the ride, and there were family vacations to Ocean City Maryland, New Jersey, California, Cape Cod, North Carolina and twelve trips to Disney World. He coached football and softball and was on the sidelines and stands cheering his children on in their games, competitions, and in all of life’s arenas. He adored becoming a grandfather. His granddaughter, Rosalie, had him wrapped around her finger and was the brightest light of his past two years. He became a little kid when she was around. He was an extremely loyal friend with friendships going back to his childhood. He enjoyed football and was a big horse racing fan. He always looked forward to his annual trip with family and friends to Saratoga Springs each summer. He was a regular at Dunkin Donuts in the center of Burlington and hospital visitors brought him Dunkin coffees rather than flowers. Tric always placed others before himself whether it was lending a helping hand, giving someone something special, or simply waiting to be the last to sit and eat a holiday meal. He was strong willed and a proud man. He passed on his terms, celebrating Thanksgiving with family and quickly fading in the days that followed. He will be sadly missed but leaves endless memories that will be forever treasured by those he loved and cared for.
