Gary E. Giuffrida
of Lowell

LOWELL -- Gary (Boo Boo) Giuffrida, 62, a lifelong resident of Lowell, MA, passed peacefully Christmas morning. While he fought a very short battle with cancer, he fought a lifelong battle with addiction.

Born in Lowell, he was the youngest of seven children of the late Dominico and Virginia Giuffrida.

He worked as a hot topper for most of his life for various paving companies in and around Lowell, where his favorite job was driving the trucks.

Boo Boo was one of the subjects of the HBO Documentary "High On Crack Street, Lost Lives in Lowell". It chronicled his lifelong battle with addiction.

Most importantly though, he lived for his family and friends whom he would do anything for if given the chance. He was a die hard New England sports fan, and those that knew him best know he was most comfortable around the boxing ring.

Boo Boo is survived by Gail Rawnsley - formerly of Dracut, Donald Giuffrida of Lowell, MA, Grace Herbert and her husband, Wayne of Gilford, NH, and Philip Giuffrida and his wife, Jodie of Lowell, MA. He was the Uncle to many nieces and nephews but had a very special bond with Susan Rawnsley, Nicholas Giuffrida and Jessie Giuffrida. He also leaves behind many special Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and very close friends.

He was the brother of the late Joseph Giuffrida and Kathryn Neels.
