Louis Pignatone entered into eternal rest on January 18th after a long, courageous battle with heart disease.
He was born in East Boston, MA to Louis G. and Antoinetta Pignatone and raised in Medford, MA with his brother Anthony. After graduating Medford High, he served in the Army Reserve in Fort Bliss, TX. He attended Northeastern University and proudly worked at Raytheon Company as a designer draftsman in the defense division. He retired at age 55.
An avid sports fan, his second career was as an umpire for baseball. softball and a soccer referee. If there was a game available, Louie and one of his good friends, Roger Morrison, Felix Costanza and Kenny Pondelli were on it! They stepped on many fields and made many friends and memories along the way.
He was kind, a good listener and had a great sense of humor. There was always a twinkle in his eye and he liked everyone he met. His only fear were grandparents that doubted his calls on the field.
Family was top priority for Louie. He married Teresa Ann (Ciampa) with whom he had an amazing partnership for 62 years. However, they sometimes quibbled about what was trash and what wasn’t, because he loved to save all his memories.
Louie was a great supportive dad to Natalie (Pignatone) Egan and Brenda (Pignatone) Lyons. He was always ready to share his superior knowledge of cheaper gas prices and deals at the grocery store. He loved his son in laws Shane Egan and Stephen Lyons as if they were his own.
Louie was known as “Fwafwa” to his grandchildren, Rebecca Lyons, Amelia Lyons, Sam Egan, Milena Lyons and Marc and Marianna Spera. He was known to carry a deck of UNO cards and willing to start a game at any venue or any occasion. He attended their games, performances, shows and grandparent days with pride. His grandchildren brought him so much joy.
