Residents fed up with Boston Clean Water By Christopher Roberson


or the past three years abutting residents say they have had nothing but problems with the Boston Clear Water Company (BCWC) located at 165 Lowell St., the former site of the Pocahontas Spring Water Company. Citing, “insolent behavior� as well “fear and intimidation� from BCWC, abutters William O’Brien, John Sievers, Andrew Gallucci, Jack Farrell and Mary Bliss are looking to the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) for administrative relief. From the latter part of 2014 through July 5 of this year, the five abutters compiled a list of 20 complaints against BCWC,

which they will present as part of their petition to the ZBA during the board’s Sept. 12 meeting. The hearing was originally scheduled for Aug. 1; however, the board voted unanimously for a continuance as proper notice of the hearing was not provided to the abutters. According to the petition, two abutters were approached by BCWC owner Anthony Gattineri and his civil engineer, Paul Marchionda, toward the end of 2014. They asked the two residents to sell their homes to Gattineri, which would give BCWC space to become a “fullt i m e c o m m e rc i a l w a t e r distribution facility.� “This would involve heavy

commercial water tankers and trucks rumbling through our entire neighborhood,� said the abutters. In April 2015, BCWC began unauthorized construction in the property’s wetlands and buffer zone. But, the abutters said, no action was taken by the town, and large box trucks were constantly in and out of their neighborhood for the remainder of the year. Unauthorized construction was reported once again on July 23, 2016, to install a stone retaining wall, a pool and other “invasive activities.� As a result, the abutters said, “severe damage was inflicted on the wetlands and the buffer zone.� The matter was brought

before the Conser vation Commission on July 25, 2016, and BCWC received a work stoppage order two days later. Yet the antics continued – a BCWC employee was observed urinating in Sievers’s backyard on Aug. 31, 2016. The very next day, both police and fire officials responded to an “uncontained� fire at BCWC, where employees had gathered and were socializing. In addition, on Oct. 7, 2016, a water tanker was moved into Sievers’s backyard without his permission. In March of this year, the abutters reported hearing screams coming from BCWC. Three individuals were then seen running to a truck and

speeding away before the police could be called. One night in May, a car radio was heard“blaring�music at 9:30 p.m. On that occasion, the police were called in time and instructed the owner of the vehicle to collect their water and leave the premises. But abutters said they also heard music throughout the night from BCWC on May 7. On June 2, abutters said that Gattineri parked his car across an abutter’s driveway and also began spray-painting a driveway one week later.When confronted by the abutter, Gattineri reportedly responded with

Lynnfield History: Boston Irish long remembered the 1834 Charlestown Convent fire By Helen Breen ext week marks the 183rd anniversary of the burning and ransacking of the Ursuline Convent in Charlestown, Mass., on August 11, 1834. The outrage would smolder in the memories of the Boston Irish for generations. The Hub in the 1830s was economically depressed. The rising tide of immigration was considered a threat to native prosperity. The shrewd Yankee trader eyed the unkempt Irish laborer with distrust. The Celt’s allegiance to the Church


of Rome was suspect. On the day before the blaze, the dynamic Calvinist preacher Lyman Beecher had delivered a caustic anti-Papist sermon in Boston. Although it was unlikely that the Charlestown rabble had attended the service, anti-Catholic sentiment was in the air. Mount Benedict Ironically, the majority of girls enrolled at the Ursuline Convent of Mount Benedict were upper-class Protestants. Appreciating the cosmopolitan education offered by the

nuns, their parents had withdrawn them from female seminaries run by the Congregationalist Church. Educated Bostonians were embracing Unitarianism. Thus, unwittingly the convent became a symbol for the conflict between liberal and fundamental Protestantism. Many bizarre tales were circulating at the time about sisters who had escaped from the “horrors of the cloister.” Although these accounts were later proven false, they were generally believed by the working classes. On July 28,

1834, Sister Mary John had fled the Ursuline Convent in hysteria (likely caused from overwork) and sought refuge in a nearby farmhouse. Boston’s Bishop Joseph Fenwick, realizing the effect of such an incident on the volatile neighborhood, hastened to the scene. Shortly, the good nun regained her composure and voluntarily returned to Mount Benedict. News of the episode electrified the community. On August 9, a deputation from the area demanded to see the sister. After speaking with her, the self-appointed investigators were convinced that she was not being held against her will.

Benedict Joseph Fenwick, S.J. (1782-1846), Bishop of Boston, urged Catholics to show restraint during the painful period of anti-Catholic sentiment that led to the Ursuline Convent fire. He later founded the Pilot, a Catholic newspaper that still survives, and Holy Cross College in Worcester. (Image – Wikipedia) #FX

On Monday afternoon, August 11, selectmen from Charlestown, with the permission of Mother Superior, conducted a three-hour search of the premises. Nothing suspicious was discovered. The conflagration Nevertheless, at dusk an enormous crowd began to gather around Mount Benedict. A bonfire was set nearby. The nuns and the children were terrified. The Mother Superior warned the horde to disperse. Finally, she reportedly declared, “If you don’t, the Bish-

op has twenty thousand Irish at his command in Boston who will whip you into the sea.” With this, some five or six hundred intruders rushed into the convent. The sisters and their charges fled to safety through the back gardens. The mob pillaged the nunnery, even desecrating the communion hosts. Attacking with a vigor with which their ancestors had executed the Boston Tea Party, they torched the structure while the local fire companies sat by and

to boot. Breakaway owner Joe Crowley has pulled out all the stops, including adding a serious music schedule with open mic on Tuesday nights hosted by one of the region’s most talented musicians, Brian Maes. Maes hasn’t been resting on his musical laurels as of late, taking the lead singer duties for Barry Goudreau’s (yes, that Barry Goudreau of the mega-70’s arena rock band Boston) new band, Engine Room. Coming off the band’s CD release night at the Lynn Auditorium last month, Maes and Crowley sat down with the Advocate for an interview prior to the band’s special show to a packed Music Hall at Breakaway late last month. “It’s the first record Barry has done since the [Brad] Delp-Goudreau record 10 years ago,” said Maes. “It’s exciting since it’s the first time he released an original record in quite some time.” Maes and Goudreau have spent the last few years playing with car czar Ernie Boch, Jr.’s band, Ernie & The Automatics; and prior to that, with RTZ (Return To Zero) featuring Brad Delp with bassist Tim Archibald; and before that, with Orion The Hunter touring as the opening act for Aerosmith. Maes would later tour with former J. Geils lead singer Peter Wolf in his band, The House Party Five. Maes and Goudreau would

join another former Boston bandmate, Sib Habashian, on Ernie & The Automatics until the band broke up in 2011. Goudreau called his former front man and told him he was sick of sitting idle and wanted Maes and Archibald on his new record. The pair co-wrote the music and lyrics for the self-titled album Engine Room. “It felt so good – the creative flow was amazing – we wrote the album in one night,” said Maes. “Barry really gets to stretch out musically and brings back that sound that people expect from him; that finesse, that touch that was heard on the first two Boston albums.” Fortune, a local band that rocked the Boston area in the 80’s and 90’s and now packs Breakaway, covers many of Boston’s hits with perfection that Goudreau took notice of on a recent stop at Breakaway. Goudreau took the stage, lending his famous guitar chops much to the delight of Boston fans in the audience. “Playing with someone who at one time was in the biggest band in the world is cool,” said Maes. “To put things into perspective; this guy sold out the [Houston] Astrodome.” Crowley said he can’t believe the response to bands like Fortune, Country music fave Jimmy Allen, dance cover bands like Wildfire and – coming on Sat., August 12 – local punk legends The Slushpuppies. In the first three months of Breakaway’s opening, 50’s crooner Ricky Nelson’s twin sons appeared after a local gig with Ernie Boch, and the place went

crazy, offering Crowley a good sign that his new music setting has potential. “I love the entertainment side of this business,” said Crowley, who owns Pisa Pizza, a wellknown restaurant in Malden. His signature pizza is on the Breakaway menu. “We want to keep taking it up another notch – keep growing musically,” he said, referring to a diverse schedule of acts from former Boston area bands to national acts. Maes and Crowley formed an alliance and created an open mic night on Tuesdays allowing local musicians to play alongside some prominent musical veterans. Crowley recalled the first time he contemplated booking bands – when he discovered that some of the bands, along with their fans, were banned by the previous owners, and no new bands would call him back for months to play at the club due to its past reputation. But the musical gods would smile on Crowley when, through a friend, he met Maes and the rest is history. “We had a conversation about doing an open mic, and I promised I would commit to it and build on it,” he said. “Tuesdays are an off night but you invest in it and it’s been awesome ever since.” Crowley said Maes’s musical friendships have brought in talent from all over the region to jam on what is usually a quiet weekday night. Crowley said in another year he wants to com-

Town to conduct inspections to update assessors records he Department of Revenue (DOR) mandates that all cities and towns physically inspect all properties at least every nine years. This is to ensure that the property data is correct in the computer-assisted mass appraisal system in order that values be calculated accurately. The collection and maintenance of current and accurate property inventory data is a critical element in determining uniform, fair market value.


In order to meet the DOR’s requirement, Patriot Properties staff, on behalf of the Board of Assessors, will conduct inspections for those properties that have not been visited within the last nine years. The staff will begin inspections August 2, 2017 and should be completed by September 1, 2017. They will have identification and a Letter of Authorization from the Board. Property owners will be asked for a complete interior and ex-

terior inspection of your property. If a property owner is not home, an exterior inspection will be conducted. The Board of Assessors wishes to thank Lynnfield residents in advance for their support of this effort to improve the accuracy of their records by completing this part of our cyclical inspection program. If you have any questions, you can contact the office at (781) 334-9450 or email us at rboly@

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local legislators’ votes on roll calls from the week of July 24-28. GOV. BAKER’S MASSHEALTH CHANGES (H 3822) House 41-116, Senate 32-6, rejected Gov. Charlie Baker’s proposal to make some major changes to MassHealth, the state’s Medicaid program that provides health care for approximately 1.4 million qualified low-income and disabled persons. Supporters said Baker’s plan is a humane and responsible approach and argued that under the changes,

not a single person would lose coverage, and low-income families would continue to have access to zero-premium health plans. Some opponents said the Legislature just a few days ago held a hearing on these changes and argued more time is needed to consider strategies to control cost growth in MassHealth and the entire health care system. Others said the changes will kick 100,000 working parents off MassHealth in favor of more expensive insurance with less coverage. In his message to the Legislature Baker said, “Passage of this package in its entirety, a set of changes supported by many stakeholders, is essential to the long-term sustainability of the MassHealth program and the state budget.” House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez (D-Boston) led the charge in the House to defeat the governor’s proposal.“We have to be really thoughtful about how we go about this because this is people’s lives that are at stake and we have to make sure we’re careful,” said Sanchez. “At the Legislature’s request, the [Baker] administration presented lawmakers with a comprehensive package that ensures quality health care coverage for residents, addresses the health care safety net’s fiscal sustainability over time while protecting taxpayers from having to pick up the bill for more individuals’ health care, and the administration looks forward to continuing to work collaboratively on solutions,” Baker’s press secretary Lizzy Guyton said in a statement following the defeat. Rep. Stephan Hay Voted against Baker’s Plan Rep. Bradley Jones Voted for Baker’s plan Rep. Theodore Speliotis Voted against Baker’s Plan Rep. Thomas Walsh Voted against Baker’s Plan Sen. Joan Lovely Voted against Baker’s Plan Sen. Thomas McGeeVoted against Baker’s Plan


PROPERTY TAX REDUCTIONS (S 2124) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House a bill providing a variety of property tax breaks for seniors, veterans and disabled persons. Provisions include raising from $1,000 to $1,500 the amount of property tax reduction veterans can earn by doing volunteer work in their city or town; creating a new local option property tax exemption for deaf persons of $5,000 of taxable valuation or $437.50 of actual taxes due, whichever is greater; and allowing more homeowners over 65 to qualify for the state’s $1,070 “senior circuit breaker” tax credit. Supporters said it is up to cities and towns whether to offer these tax breaks because the breaks are not state-mandated. They noted the reductions will be good for countless low-income seniors, military personnel and disabled persons and might even help some of them remain in their homes, rather than having to move because they can’t afford to pay their property taxes. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee Yes $2,000 PROPERTY TAX REDUCTION FOR VOLUNTEERS OVER 60 (S 2124) Senate 15-23, rejected an amendment that would raise from $1,500 to $2,000 the amount of property tax reduction seniors over 60 can earn by doing volunteer work in their city or town which has opted into this program. Local cities and towns are not required to offer the volunteer program. Amendment supporters said the increase will give some seniors an additional $500 reduction in their property taxes. They noted this is an important change that will allow more seniors to remain in their homes. Most amendment opponents said they support the hike but noted that there is already a similar bill that has received a favorable report from the Revenue Committee and will eventually be debated by the Senate. They said that bill, unlike this amendment, has gone through the regular legislative process including a public hearing. (A “Yes” vote is for the hike to $2,000. A “No” vote is against the hike.) Sen. Joan Lovely No Sen. Thomas McGee Yes

Governor Baker files sales tax holiday legislation Speaker DeLeo voices opposition, cites budget shortfall


OSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Governor Charlie Baker filed legislation on Wednesday designating August 19-20, 2017, as Massachusettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales tax holiday weekend to renew a tax-free weekend that generally occurs every year in the Commonwealth. The legislation would suspend the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6.25% retail sales tax for the weekend on purchases of goods costing $2,500 or less, which will provide a welcome relief to consumers and bolster sales at businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sales tax holiday gives

consumers a much needed break and supports business across the Commonwealth for our hardworking retailers,â&#x20AC;? said Governor Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to working with the Legislature to make this important weekend possible so the Commonwealth can shop local and make purchases tax-free.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A tax-free weekend provides consumers with a great opportunity to support local businesses while saving money,â&#x20AC;? said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This weekend will especially help

out parents who are looking to make back-to-school purchases, and I look forward to working with our partners in the Legislature to see this legislation passed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sales tax holiday weekend supports both Main Street and consumers in the Commonwealth, while also boosting economic activity in our cities and towns,â&#x20AC;? said Administration and Finance Secretary Kristen Lepore. In a statement from House Speaker Rep. Robert A. DeLeo,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes little sense for the Governor to file this legislation now when there are several similar bills already in committee. Each year our hope is to hold a sales tax holiday to give our hardworking citizens and local businesses a boost, which is why the House votes consistently in favor of the sales tax holiday whenever revenues allow. This year, the Commonwealth experienced unpredicted revenue shortfalls and accordingly, the Legislature had to make significant budget cuts to pro-

grams and services. In doing so, however, we protected and prioritized the most critical services and programs. We also maintained our support for local cities and towns. These choices ultimately benefit local businesses, all of which require a strong local economy and infrastructure to thrive in the long-term. In addition, we will continue to work with local retailers to support federal action on creating a level playing field for internet and brick-and-mortar businesses alike. â&#x20AC;?

their heads to raise awareness of the disease and raise money to fight it. The House approved the bill on a voice vote without a roll call. Supporters said that the ice bucket challenge has raised millions of dollars to help find a cure for ALS. They noted that designating a week as Ice Bucket Challenge Week will help publicize the event and lead to the raising of more money. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the bill.) Sen.

pect of the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session.

The cost of bowling is $16 per week which covers bowling, weekly prizes, annual prizes and a bowling banquet.

with a solid relief appearance to help secure the win. With runners in scoring position in the sixth, Tyler Adamo lofted a sacrifice fly to tie up the proceedings at six. Nick Lucich scored on the play, but Grousis, ever alert, came all the way home from second base on an errant throw to win the game for his teammates. In the rematch last Saturday, Christian Rosa started on the hill before Anthony Grabau followed in relief. They each pitched three innings. The game on Sunday against Framingham was memorable for Adamo, who blasted his first career Little League home run. He also pitched in the game, along with Dan Dorman. Jarrett Scoppettuolo and Dorman paced the offensive attack with two doubles each. Dorman continued his power surge against Haverhill Monday night with three

round-trippers. Two of them were solo shots, and his other blast was a two-run shot to help lead his teammates to victory, 7-6. Dorman’s second solo home run tied up the game in the sixth, setting the stage for the game-winner via a series of walks, errors and a couple of timely hits. Ryan MacEachern followed Dorman’s homer by getting hit with a pitch. He eventually made it over to third before finally scoring the winning run on a single by Brendan Manoogian. Matt Papagikos recorded the win on the mound after pitching a couple of solid innings in relief. The Lynnfield all-stars wrap up the second round on Aug. 3 against Haverhill again (after press deadline), and then they will be getting ready for Trophy Weekend starting on Saturday in Andover.

A young golfer’s dream came true with a hole-in-one he goal of every golfer is to record a hole-in-one. Jed Caswell’s dream came true at a young age of 17, during a leisurely summer afternoon round this past Saturday at Reedy Meadow Golf Course in Lynnfield. He aced the third hole, a 210-yard par 3, using his 4-hybrid club. Caswell was elated, saying, “The ball was on target, but I thought I had over-hit the green because the afternoon sun made it difficult to see the ball. We then walked up to the pin and there it was sitting in the cup – it’s an unreal feeling.” Jed is no stranger to the Reedy course, as he has worked at the course for over three years and plays just about every day. Frequently he is seen walking back and forth to the course from his nearby home on Forest Hill. Jed also caddies at Salem Country Club throughout the summer. He will serve as Lynnfield High School’s golf captain this coming fall. “It’s very busy time, but I wouldn’t change anything about my love for the game of golf,” stated Jed. Many people have helped Jed’s young golf career, in-

The Nutritionist Corner

Wake up to Breakfast muffin sandwich with avocado, made the night before. A nutrient rich breakfast gives your body and your day a healthy edge by supplying nutrients for staying healthy and energy to get the most from your day’s work. Wake up to breakfast and energize your day.

By Anna Tourkakis, Nutritionist e have all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and studies suggest there is truth to that claim. Making breakfast a priority every morning is well worth the effort. And it’s simpler than you think. While we sleep the body uses its stored energy as it goes into a fasting state. Breakfast is our chance to replenish nutrients after a night’s sleep and kick start the metabolism (metabolism refers to all the chemical processes by which nutrients are used to support life). National Health And Nutrition Surveys have identified specific nutrients many of us do not get enough of: vitamin A, D, E and C, as well as folate, calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium. A breakfast consisting of wholesome food can help us get more of these vital nutrients. Breakfast does not need to be eaten immediately after arising. The ideal time to consume breakfast is up to two hours after waking. Take five to ten minutes in the morning and enjoy a healthy breakfast and be ready for the day ahead. If time is tight, take breakfast on the road, or prepare it the night before. Pick up a healthy option low on fat, sugar and salt if eating outside the home. Choosing nutrient rich foods is key. Tips for choosing healthy options: An adequate breakfast should be made from at least three food groups. Fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy all have their place at the breakfast table as long as they are from healthy food sources. Here are some examples. • a bowl of low sugar cereal (not more that 6 g per serving) with milk and sprinkled with dried fruits and nuts. • English muffin with chunky peanut butter • Two egg omelet with veggies, made the night before • Overnight oatmeal – combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and plug in right before going to bed and wake up to hearty warm oatmeal • Poached egg and English


Breakfast to start the day right.

Poached egg on English muffin with avocado and hearty oatmeal with apples are just two ideas of breakfast meals that can be prepared ahead to give your day a nutritious edge.

Finding Help for Seniors Addicted to Opioids Dear Savvy Senior, I’m worried about my 72-year-old mother who has been taking the opioid medication Vicodin for her hip and back pain for more than a year. I fear she’s becoming addicted to the drug but I don’t know what to do. Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, The opioid epidemic is a national problem that is hitting people of all ages, including millions of older Americans. Here’s what you should know and do to help your mother. The Cause The main reason opioid addiction has become such a problem for people over age 50 is because over the past two decades, opioids have become a commonly prescribed (and often overprescribed) medication by doctors for all different types of pain like arthritis, cancer, neurological diseases and other illnesses that become more common in later life. Nearly one-third of all Medicare patients – almost 12 million people – were prescribed opioid painkillers by their physicians in 2015. That same year, 2.7 million Americans over age 50 abused painkillers. Taken as directed, opioids can manage pain effectively when used for a short amount of time. But with longterm use, people need to be screened and monitored because around 5 percent of those treated will develop an addiction disorder and abuse the drugs. Signs of Addiction Your mother may be addicted to opioids if she can’t stop herself from taking the drug, and her tolerance continues to go up. She may also be addicted if she keeps using opioids without her doctor’s consent, even if it’s causing her problems with her health, money, family or friends. If you think your mom’s addicted, ask her to see a doctor for an evaluation. Go to the family or prescribing physician, or find a specialist through the American Society of Addiction Medicine (see or the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry ( It’s also important to be positive and encouraging. Addiction is a medical matter, not a character flaw. Repeated use of opioids actually changes the brain. Treatments Treatment for opioid addiction is different for each person, but the main goal is to help your mom stop using the drug and avoid using it again in the future. To help her stop using the drug, her doctor can prescribe certain medicines to help relieve her withdrawal symptoms and control her cravings. These medicines include methadone (often used to treat heroin addiction), buprenorphine, and naltrexone. After detox, behavioral treatments such as individual counseling, group or family counseling, and cognitive therapy can help her learn how to manage depression, avoid the drug, deal with cravings, and heal damaged relationships. For assistance, call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration confidential help line at 800-662-4357, or see They can connect you with treatment services in your state that can help your mom. Also, if you find that your mom has a doctor who prescribes opioids in excess or without legitimate reason, you should report him or her to your state medical board, which licenses physicians.

Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

titution. The Irish, admonished by their clergy, showed great self-control. As late as 1842, Abbot Lawrence introduced a petition for compensation, which was denied. After the tragedy, the Ursuline nuns returned to Canada. According to one account, the ruins of the convent remained in place for many years, presenting a stark contrast to the nearby Bunker Hill Monument completed in 1843. Stones from the structure were used to build an arch in the vestibule of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston. Yet, memories of the outrage lingered for generations among the Boston Irish. —Send comments to

The aftermath The respectable members of Boston society were shocked at the lawless deed on the soil of their forefathers. The act was denounced the next day by Boston Mayor Theodore Lyman at a public meeting in Faneuil Hall. Town fathers Harrison Gray Otis and Josiah Quincy promised to rebuild the convent with private funds.

Aries (March 21st-April 20th): You’ll be craving some downtime after a busy busy week. Rest if you can this weekend, and if you can’t- watch your temper! Next week expect some communication mishaps- stay calm and clarify, and double check that all of your emails get sent.


Virgo (August 23rd-September 22rd): The moon will have you feeling very introverted and analytical this weekend. Review through your ideas and thoughts, as this month is great for making some big changes. Stay out of conflicts at work next week, trying to help could be read as taking as side!

O B I TUAR IE S William â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billâ&#x20AC;?J. Clark, Jr. M.D.

Age 96, formerly of Lynnfield and Scituate, Massachusetts, died peacefully on July 22nd at home in Danvers. Son of the late William J. Sr and Julia (Graham) Clark and brother to the late Rev. Graham S. Clark, he was born in White Plains NY on June 3, 1921 and raised in Scarsdale, NY. Bill graduated with honors from St Michaels College, Vermont, Class of 1943 and University of Vermont Medical School in 1947. He served in the US Army, stationed in Japan as the lead dermatologist with the occupying allied forces. Among notable patients was former Prime Minister Tojo, who was being treated while awaiting trial for

war crimes. After discharge, Dr Clark completed his residency Carney Hospital in Boston, where he met and married the love of his life, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bettyâ&#x20AC;? Furrier. They eventually settled on the North Shore of Boston, where Dr Clark established his internal medicine and cardiology practice, working for over 30 years at the Malden and Melrose-Wakefield Hospitals, making house calls and serving for a time as chief of staff. Bill retired in 1985 to pursue his passion for golf, sailing, bridge and travel, spending summers in Scituate MA and winters in Naples FL. He was a long-time member of Hatherly Golf and Satuit Boat Clubs of Scituate where he was known for his dry wit and congenial personality. He particularly enjoyed puttering around the house with various renova-


tion projects, a never-ending endeavor when living by the ocean. Never one to seek the spotlight, Bill would typically shy away from social functions. Bill once won a major golf tournament at Hatherly and when he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be located for the presentation ceremony, the award committee had to be dispatched to his home to bring him back. Bill is survived by his wife, Elizabeth A. (Furrier) Clark. Loving father of Sheila Iacopino and her husband Vito, William J. Clark III. and his wife Anita, Stephen Clark and his wife Karin, Peter Clark, Eileen Kenney and her husband Jeff, Kate Clark, Maura Gomes and her husband Wilson, Elizabeth Paulding, Julianne Regan and her husband Chris. Also survived by his 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.

A Funeral Mass was held Thursday, August 3 in Our Lady of Assumption Church, Lynnfield. Interment, St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cemetery, Lynn. In lieu of flowers, and in celebration of Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, donations

may be made in his memory to North Shore Elder Services ( or All Care VNA Hospice & Homecare ( For obit/guestbook,
