PARTELLO Kenneth “Ken” of Randolph formerly of Jamaica Plain, passed away August 25, 2016 at the age of 56. Beloved husband of Angela M. (Ruggerio) Partello. Loving father of Stephen N. Partello and his wife Reneitia of Boston. Son of the late Harry and Mary (Mannix) Partello. Devoted brother of Mary Anne (Partello) Harris of Concord, NH, Stephen Partello of Nashua, NH, Wayne Partello of Norwood, Ken's twin sister Cheryl (Partello) Walley of Nashua, NH, Diane (Partello) Lumbard of Somerville, ME, and the late Ronald, Brian, and Donald Partello. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Ken was an avid and brilliant artist born and brought up in Jamaica Plain, living in Randolph for the past 18 years. Following his graduation from Malden High School, Ken proudly served four years in the U.S. Army. Upon his return home he became a police officer with the City of Boston Public Schools and retired at the rank of sergeant. With a yearning desire to draw and practice his God-given talent, after retirement he created ‘Boston Caricature’ company. It was truly amazing how he would capture a person’s likeness and personality within minutes in a caricature, but always in a positive way. He loved painting with oil and watercolors, selling some of his art locally. He was very giving of himself and for many years also enjoyed teaching art to inner-city youth fostering a love for art and creativity through community service work. He was known and loved by many in the community and his spirit will live on through his art.
