<![CDATA[The Salem News: Obituaries]]> (10)

Peabody - Henry H. (Hubie) Newhall of Peabody, MA passed away peacefully on June 28, 2024, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House surrounded by his loving family. Henry was born in Salem, MA on March 4, 1941 to Ralph Austin and Evangeline Porter (Goodridge) Newhall, as the second of three boys. A life-long resident of Peabody he was known for his work ethic and for managing several newspaper routes throughout his teenage years in South Peabody. At one point, he was hiring neighbors and classmates as "subcontractors" as his business grew. As testimony to his character and commitment to doing things the right way his "paper boys" became loyal, life-long friends. His family home on Lynnfield Street included a large barn, open farmland and fields bordered by train tracks that ran adjacent to what is now known as Centennial Business Park. He and his brothers (Dick and Hal) collected an assortment of old cars and motorcycles, using the open spaces on their property to test-drive their fixer-uppers. He also fell in love with pond hockey in the winter months and pick-up baseball in the summer. He attended South Memorial School and Peabody High School, graduating in 1958. He captained the Peabody High Hockey team his senior year and was voted as the "nicest" in his class. It was during his senior year that he met his future wife Marie as he was performing a ballet dance routine in a school musical with some of his hockey teammates. They celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary this past May. After graduating high school, Henry entered an apprentice program at General Electric in Lynn, which led to an invitation to learn how to program and operate IBM mainframe computers. While working full-time he attended Northeastern University evening program earning his college degree. This experience opened the door to a career in the banking industry starting as an operations specialist at Essex Bank in Lynn. During his 30 years in banking, Henry was selected to attend the school of banking at Williams College as he rose to senior positions managing regulatory operations. At age 50, challenged to reinvent himself after the Bank of New England declared bankruptcy, Henry began his second career as the first full-time bookstore manager at St. John's Prep in Danvers where he worked for more than 20 years. By the time he retired in 2013, Henry transformed the bookstore into a modern space, streamlining book sales, offering contemporary logo apparel, and creating a local hub for student activity. In addition to developing friendships with many in the Prep community, he treasured the opportunity he had to work with his son, Michael also a longtime employee and alumnus. Family and friendship were at the cornerstone of Henry's life, he and Marie raised their only child Michael in Peabody, where he dedicated his time creating wonderful family memories coaching youth hockey and Little League baseball. They enjoyed vacations with family on Cape Cod and in Florida. He and Marie also enjoyed travel over the years throughout the U.S. and Europe with some of their long-time friends including the Broughton's and Bonfanti's. Henry's most enjoyable role in life was as "Grampy" for Michael's children, Tyler and Hayley. As they grew older and got involved in sports and school activities, he found joy in watching them on the field or in the gym. He was most proud of their pursuit of education and watching them grow into thoughtful adults who have interesting and productive careers. Recently, Hayley and her husband Sean welcomed their first child, Connor. Henry had an opportunity to spend time with his great-grandson during Father's Day weekend. Henry was a kind man, his family and friends will miss him, and we want to thank Dr. Jeff Odiet along with the caring staff at Brightview in Danvers, Care Dimensions and the Kaplan Family Hospice House. He was predeceased by his older brother Richard and his parents. Henry is survived by his wife of 62 years Marie and his son Michael and his wife Suzanne; his grandchildren, Tyler and partner Dr. Rachel Brown; Hayley (Newhall) Cullen and her husband Sean Cullen; and his great-grandson Connor Cullen.

<![CDATA[The Salem News: Obituaries]]> (33)

Salem - Dennis Patrick Must, age 90 of Salem, MA died on June 18, 2024, at home, surrounded by his loving wife of 49 years and two of his daughters. The oldest of five,Dennis was born on May 4, 1934, in New Castle, PA. He graduated in 1956 from Washington & Jefferson College with a major in philosophy and a minor in religion. He pursued graduate studies at the Princeton Theological Seminary and playwriting at the Iowa Writer's Workshop at the University of Iowa and at New York University. Early in his career, Dennis taught in secondary schools in Pittsburgh, PA and in New York City to support his creative pursuits. Through the 1960's and 70's, a time of great experimentation in the arts, he wrote, directed, and co-produced several off-off Broadway plays. Dennis also co-founded a successful corporate real estate firm during the real estate boom of the 1980's. The real estate crash closed the company's doors, but re-opened the opportunity to again devote himself to his writing.From the 1990's through his final days, Dennis tirelessly pursued his love of writing. His prose was notable for its lyricism, vivid evocative imagery, and strong sense of time and place. This prolific period resulted in myriad publications, including five novels, three short story collections, and dozens of publications in both national literary journals and anthologies. His talents also yielded numerous literary awards. For his work, Dennis drew on his working-class background- his stints as a short-order cook, lightning rod installer, florist, bartender, bellhop, laborer in a glass factory, steel mill, on highway construction, and with the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. These experiences were some of the richest in his life, and the meaning he made from all of these have become the stories that he leaves behind to be appreciated for years to come. Dennis's favorite quote by Anias Nin: "We write to taste life twice."Some of Dennis' happiest times were long scenic rides with his wife up the coast of the North Shore and Maine, eating by the water's edge, listening to and playing jazz, and sneaking table scraps to one of his many beloved dogs. Dennis is survived by his wife, Aviva Must of Salem, his daughters, Ariel Must and husband Kenneth Stallings of Brooklyn, NY, Shoshanna Must and husband Dan Marques of Larchmont, NY, Kim Must of Macon, GA, Kathy Detreaux of Hanalei, HI, and Shawn Must of Princeville, HI, and his nephew Jamie Must of Naples, FL; his two sisters, Kathleen Must and Terrylea Must of New Castle, PA, and his seven adoring grandchildren: Margaux and Olivia Stallings, Colette and Adrian Marques, and James, Sachi, and Destiny Detreaux. Dennis was predeceased by his parents, Joseph Frances Must and Margaret Daugherty, and his brother James Sherwood and sister Linda. He is also survived by his cherished writer friends and his beloved Black Lab mix, Josie.Donations in his memory may be made to Red Hen Press (https://redhen.org) or the American Civil Liberties Union (https://www.aclu.org.

Marblehead - Long before he graduated from St. Mary's High School in Lynn and the United States Military Academy at West Point, John B. "Jack" King knew the impact education could have on a young person's life.A son of a General Electric worker and a public school teacher, Mr. King was raised in an Irish Catholic home where hard work, self-discipline and devotion to family was expected.Years later, after a career as an executive at ExxonMobil Corp., Mr. King and his wife, Mary, committed themselves to social and educational philanthropy, focusing on St. Mary's Lynn, West Point and Kernwood Country Club in Salem."I always thought that if you're part of an organization, you have to step up and take your turn on the board," Mr. King said recently.Mr. King, who served 10 years on the St. Mary's board, died Sunday morning at his Marblehead home with his family by his side. He was 75.With a radiant smile and easy laugh, Mr. King was also a private man and his recent illness was known only to his immediate family and closest friends.Born and raised in Lynn, he was the son of the late John and Frances (O'Connor) King. He is survived by his wife, Mary, their daughter, Katie and granddaughter, Niko.Family was most important to Mr. King. His wife, Mary, with whom he walked to St. Mary's from their East Lynn neighborhood, were married for nearly 52 years. She, their daughter and granddaughter were the center of his world.The family traveled extensively, taking ski vacations to New Mexico, Christmas trips to New York City and regular treks to Fenway Park to root for his beloved Red Sox.After graduating from St. Mary's in 1966, Mr. King entered West Point. He graduated in 1970 with a degree in engineering. He served 10 years in the Army, rising to the rank of major and serving on bases in the US and Brazil."Without question, the most challenging, satisfying years of my professional life was being an Army officer," he said.After leaving the Army, Mr. King joined Mobil Corp. as a petroleum engineer in New Orleans. He learned the oil industry on offshore rigs and earned a master's in business administration from Tulane University.He later transitioned to a commercial job, creating markets for liquefied natural gas produced by Mobil, and its successor, ExxonMobil, in Indonesia, Japan, Qatar and Peru. He retired in 2006.A consummate teacher and mentor, Mr. King, not content to sit still, applied his energy to teaching for IHRDC, a continuing education company with a focus on the upstream oil and gas industry. He taught participants from all parts of the world including Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Qatar, Kuwait, Brazil and Indonesia – educating national employees on the commercial aspects of the industry so they could better negotiate with the international oil companies.In retirement, Mr. King and his wife split their time between homes in Houston and Marblehead. As a committed philanthropist, Mr. King would often talk about giving back using the "3T's: Time, Talent or Treasure – give whatever you can." Together, Mr. and Mrs. King's impact shall be felt for generations. They concentrated on raising money for St. Mary's and other nonprofits and charities close to their hearts, such as breast cancer research.Mr. King's decade on the St. Mary's board included five years as chairman. During his tenure, the board completed a strategic study, added a STEM building, and increased fundraising. "We have a lot of great alumni," he said.Never content just to write a check, Mr. King and his wife often met with St. Mary's students to hear firsthand their educational needs and aspirations. The King Family Guidance Office at the school bears their name.Mr. King was also loyal to his other alma mater, West Point. For 18 years, he was the admissions representative for the North Shore's Sixth Congressional District, during which over 50 students enrolled at the military academy. "They're just a phenomenal group of young people," he said.An avid golfer, Mr. King and his wife joined Kernwood Country Club, a historically Jewish golf and social club with a culture of philanthropy. A devout Catholic, he was elected Kernwood's first non-Jewish president, presiding over the club's centennial year in 2014.On his watch, Kernwood hosted qualifying rounds for the Simpson Cup, a tournament for injured service men and women. It was while playing in that tournament that Mr. King accomplished another rare feat, a hole-in-one.In addition to his wife, daughter and granddaughter, Mr. King is survived by a sister, Katharine Muth of Old Orchard Beach, ME.; two brothers, Kevin, and his wife, Margaret, of Falmouth, MA and Paul and his wife, Margaret of Slidell, LA.; several nieces, nephews and cousins.His Funeral will be held on Friday, June 28, 2024 at 9:30 a.m. from the Solimine Funeral Home 67 Ocean St. (Rt. 1A), Lynn followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Pius V Church, Lynn at 10:30 a.m. Burial will be in Star of the Sea Cemetery, Marblehead.

<![CDATA[Mary L. Papapetros]]>https://obituaries.salemnews.com/obituary/mary-papapetros-1090001919<![CDATA[

<![CDATA[The Salem News: Obituaries]]> (39)

Latham - Mary Lourdes (Wells) Papapetros 74, of Latham, New York, passed away peacefully in her sleep at home surrounded by her children on Monday, June 17, 2024.Born January 28, 1950, in Troy, New York to the late Margaret Lourdes Bouchard and Albert Francis Wells, Mary's life was defined by an indomitable spirit and unwavering devotion to her family. Mary's proudest role in life was as a mother to Georgia Papapetros, Demitrios "Jamie" Papapetros, and Gregory Papapetros, who passed away unexpectedly earlier this year.Mary graduated from Beverly High School in Beverly, Massachusetts, class of 1968, and Mildred Elley Business College in Albany. She worked as a medical receptionist for more than 20 years for several medical practices in the Capital Region, but she is most fondly remembered for her years at JCPenney in Latham. Mary had an impeccable sense for fashion and detail, often sporting a new blazer or jacket and matching headband.When she was not working, Mary could often be found in the kitchen preparing one of her famous meals or desserts as she always wanted everyone well fed and taken care of. Whether it was her famous lasagna, pancakes, or Funfetti cakes, Mary was a master chef. When it came to caring for herself, it was an extra-large coffee from Dunkin'. Mary was also passionate about animals, adopting pets and taking in strays that gravitated to her doorstep. Most recently, Mary was the proud mom of Ms. Valentine, a Jack Russell Terrier mix, and Mr. Screech, a black-and-white tuxedo cat, who could often be found sleeping on her chest or beside her head. The Sylvan Avenue neighborhood will fondly remember 25 years of Mary walking by with one of her dogs, waving and stopping to check in, with Stanley, the cat, trailing behind her.Mary was an avid reader with an affinity for Danielle Steel romance novels. She enjoyed watching her favorite soap operas, "The Young and The Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," and she fell asleep nightly with the comfort and laughs of "The Golden Girls." To her family, Mary resembled Sophia Petrillo from the iconic show, as she stood only 5 feet tall, and, like Sophia, she made up for it with a feisty and never-quit attitude. That feistiness carried her from her childhood as one of seven, through marriage and motherhood, to the milestone of buying her first home and rebuilding it after a house fire. Mary's resilience helped her to overcome cancer, a challenge that amazed her team of healthcare professionals. While Mary faced a number of health challenges in recent years, her zest for life never wavered. She cherished opportunities to visit with her sisters and extended family for birthdays and other special occasions in her hometown. She also relished the chance to visit with her childhood friend of more than 50 years, Brenda Walker Hallion, and to attend high school reunions.Mary and Brenda, whose families lived side-by-side in a large duplex in Beverly, spent many of their afternoons as young children and teenagers picking up snacks from the local store, Plummer's, after school and rushing to watch their favorite TV shows, "Edge of Night" and "Secret Storm." Mary and Brenda stayed in touch as their lives took them in different directions, and they continued to be there for each other during life's most precious and challenging times."Family like branches of a tree, we grow in different directions, but our roots remain as one." This quote hung over Mary's bed and is the value by which she lived. If there is a life lesson that Mary could pass on, it would be to never give up, to cherish family and friends, and, in the words of Dorothy Zbornak, "The bottom line is, if you take a chance in life, sometimes good things happen, sometimes bad things happen, but, honey, if you don't take a chance, nothing happens." To all those who crossed paths with Mary, "Thank you for being a friend."Mary is survived by her two children, Georgia Papapetros and Demitrios "Jamie" Papapetros, and predeceased by her youngest child, Gregory Papapetros. She is also survived by her former husband and the father of her children, George Papapetros of Athens, Greece, and by her sisters, Peggy Wells-O'Keeffe of Poughkeepsie, Kathy (Wells) Buff of Guilderland, Anne Glynn Baldwin of Glendale, Arizona, Ann Q. of Beverly, Massachusetts, and numerous cousins. Mary was predeceased by her brothers, Jim Wells and John Wells, of Beverly, Massachusetts, sister Judy Davis of Highland Mills, New York, and aunts Mary Hill and Madeline Sapone.Family and friends are invited to pay their respects on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Shaker Ridge Country Club, 802 Albany Shaker Road, Albany, NY 12211. A Celebration of Life will immediately follow at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, Attn: Donations, 3 Oakland Avenue, Menands, NY 12204 in memory of Mary.To leave a special message for the family online, visit NewComerAlbany.com

<![CDATA[The Salem News: Obituaries]]> (44)

Bridgton - Normand Roger Pelletier was born in Salem, Massachusetts on May 25, 1958. Born the son of the late Anita (Ouellette) Pelletier and Real Pelletier, he was the oldest amongst five brothers and sisters - Elaine, Kenny, Janice, and Daniel. The family grew up together in the Castle Hill Neighborhood in Salem and were active in the St. Anne's Church community. Normand attended Essex Agricultural and Technical Institute (Essex Aggie) for high school in Danvers, MA. He graduated in 1976 as an ornamental horticulture major and had his own landscaping and small engine repair business for years.Normand met his first wife Vickie (Carlson) Pelletier, formerly of Haverhill, MA during their high school years at Essex Aggie, and they were married on November 12, 1978. Normand and Vickie grew to become a family of 5 by 1983 after becoming first time parents to Danielle, Nicole and Stephanie. Although having three children so close together, Normand embraced the family life of being actively involved with his girls' sports lives. If he wasn't coaching, he was running the girls from sport to sport, practices to games, sometimes seven days a week.The family took yearly summer vacations to Conway Lake where they rented a chalet from a family friend. The family would go fishing off the dock, walk up the road to go swimming at the public beach, take day trips to Storyland or Whale's Tale Water Park, hike or take the auto ride up Mount Washington. This created years of memories that his family still holds dearly, to this current day.Normand was an avid ice skater, and hockey player. He enjoyed his time playing in a men's hockey league but what he enjoyed the most was taking his three girls ice skating. He loved to scoop the girls in his arms, one at a time, holding them low to the ice with their skates down and zip them around and around the rink. The family spent many memorable Friday nights together at the rink.Normand was also a big time marathon runner. He and his best friend, Larry would scour the practice course a day before their training runs and hide bottles of water all over the course. Normand also shared a love for running with his daughter, Nicole. When she was 10 y.o., they took on local 5K courses together where they bonded through training for these racing events. They spent hours running together that felt like only seconds to them. It wasn't until Normand broke his leg playing soccer that would end his running career.Once healed from his broken leg and knowing it would not be the same, he picked up a love for refereeing soccer games. He refereed a variety of games and tournaments and took great pride in being part of the referee crew that officiated the Massachusetts state championships. He loved sharing stories of angry coaches to red carding players to yelling parents on the sidelines. The adversity never bothered him, as he enjoyed what he was doing and found it to be part of the game.Shortly after Normand and Vickie divorced, Normand met his recent wife Cathy (Rudolph) Sampson of Sudbury, MA. They lived in Massachusetts for a short time until they built a house and moved to Bridgton, Maine. Together, Normand and Cathy shared a love for cooking and gardening. They were always finding new recipes to try together and cook together. They enjoyed taking time off from work together and shared a variety of weekends away and vacations themselves.Normand adopted an additional family upon marrying Cathy. He became close with Cathy's parents William and Barbara Rudolph of Bridgton, Maine, her son, Drew and daughter, Nicole. And in later years, their spouses - Jessica (Drew) and Tim (Nicole). Then came the grandchildren - Takoda and Emma (Drew and Jessica) and Olivia and Colton (Nicole and Tim). If you didn't find Normand occupied around outside the house, you could find him spending time with his grandkids who he absolutely adored.Normand took pride in their home's landscaping and outdoor spaces. If he wasn't riding around on his John Deere, he would be fighting the pesky groundhog that was eating all the plants in his garden. Normand was always a hard worker and took great satisfaction in the work that he did. Although work wasn't his life, it was always an important part of what he did to support his family.When he wasn't working or around family, Normand was "out with the guys" on the golf course. Jerry, Jose, and Mike were longtime referee buddies that transformed into great friends and golf comrades. Normand always enjoyed their annual golf trips together.Normand passed away suddenly on the morning of May 20, 2024. Although the culmination of his life ended unexpectedly, he is leaving behind years of memories, along with family and friends that know they were truly loved by him.Normand is survived by his wife Cathy Sampson (Rudolph) and her children Drew Sampson and his wife Jessica of Lebanon, Maine, Nicole Cadman and her husband Tim of Framingham, MA. His ex-wife Vickie (Carlson) Pelletier and their three daughters Danielle (Legault) and her husband and their two daughters of Peabody, MA, Nicole (Rapkowicz) and her husband, Jeremy of Lyndonville, VT and Stephanie (Stapley) and her husband Kendall of Meredith, NH. Normand's siblings Elaine (Bonaiuto) and her husband Joseph of Beverly, MA, Janice Pelletier of Salem, MA, Kenny Pelletier and his wife Kim (Sanborn) of Denmark, ME and Daniel Pelletier and his wife Lisa (Beausoleil) of Salem, MA. Nieces Grace Bonaiuto of Beverly, MA, Ashley Marsh (Pelletier) of Beverly, MA, Tricia Pelletier of Salem, MA and Nephews Nathan Bonaiuto of Amesbury, MA and Jacob Pelletier of Salem, MA.A celebration of life will be held at a later date for close family and friends.
