in Lowell and Tewksbury; 85
TEWKSBURY George A. Brucato, age 85, a well known member of the Greater Lowell community, died unexpectedly on Tuesday afternoon,
November 3, at the Lowell General
Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Lucille B. "Bridget" (Martel) Brucato, who died in 1993.
He was born in Andover, October 10, 1924, one of
seven sons of the late Thomas and Agnes (Robinson) Brucato. He had lived in North Tewksbury since 1961.
He enlisted into the U.S. Army in 1943, served in the Medical Detachment of the 112th General Hospital in Europe, and was honorably
discharged in 1946, as a Corporal.
He was the owner of the Brucato Brothers Mobil service station on
Rogers Street in Lowell from 1954 until the dealership closed in 1985. He relocated to the Tewksbury Center Mobil Station in 1985 and retired in 2000.
He worked endless hours at the gas station, but managed to cultivate a large garden in the back yard of his home. He also managed the relaxing escape to his boats, and later yachts, at Hampton Beach.
Known to family and friends as "BOOMPA", he will be remembered for his outrageously funny and often salty jokes, his long and humorous stories, warm smile,
meticulously groomed moustache, and generosity with his abundance of home grown vegetables.
He is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, George J. and Claire (Chausse) Brucato of Dracut, and Richard D. and Kim (Bernstein) Brucato of Salem, NH; five grandchildren, Debra and husband, Frank Makos of Tyngsboro, Lisa and husband, James Weissbach of Dracut, George and wife, Christine Brucato of Hudson, Alicia Brucato and husband, Papo Rodrigues of Lowell, Jason Brucato of Salem, NH; nine great-grandchildren; three brothers, David Brucato and wife, Doris of Andover, Peter Brucato of Wisc., Edward Brucato of FL; dearest friend and companion, Barbara Bennett of Tewksbury; and many nieces and nephews.
He was also the brother of the late Paul, Thomas and John Brucato.
