Happy was a proud member of the Iron Workers Local 7 for 32 years. He didn’t consider it work because he loved this job so much. He took great pride in his contribution to building Boston’s skyscrapers. Particularly The John Hancock Tower, Children’s Hospital, and The Horizon’s located in his neighborhood of Hull. One of his favorite moments was his two sons walking the beams with him on the Horizon building. Happy was a leader and took pride in teaching and mentoring his young and old colleagues the tricks of the trade. He was overjoyed that his son Matthew followed in his footsteps working for Local 7.
After retirement Happy served the Jesuit Community at Boston College for over twenty years. He loved his “part-time retirement job” of taking care of all the priests' cars. He was there “go to man”, who enjoyed spending time joking around with the priests and all the staff.
Happy loved his home in Hull, especially sitting on the porch. He was the consummate host of many holidays, cookouts, birthday parties and celebrations. Happy was a fixture at Hull High School athletic events for all his children and grandchildren's games. He would often be seen filming his kids football, basketball, and hockey games. He always stayed busy puttering around the house and spent a lot of time in his garage affectionately known as Happy’s Haven. He was known near and afar as “Mr. Fix It”. An avid reader, always with a book, he never missed watching his beloved Boston Red Sox.
He was a father figure to all the neighborhood kids and a grandfather to many more. Happy was a kind, funny, friendly, loving soul and was loved by many. He will be deeply missed.
