“The Fabulous Five” stays together

Voters decide to keep their popular Board of Selectmen intact

he five selectmen who led a major political coup of Saugus Town Hall 33 months ago have won the trust of voters to continue serving for at least another two years. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra C. Panetta and her colleagues Jeffrey V. Cicolini, Jennifer E. D’Eon, Scott A. Brazis and Mark D. Mitchell retained their seats in Tuesday’s Town Election -essentially giving a forceful vote of confidence to Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree. He owes his job security to the board that earned the nick-

name of “The Fabulous Five” during this year’s campaign. Though four of the members won reelection handily, Mitchell had to claw his way to victory in a tight three-way race for the fifth seat, beating out former School Committee Member Corinne R. Riley by just 16 votes. Former Selectman Michael J. Serino finished 37 votes behind Riley. “It’s very humbling to win one election, never mind three in the last 33 months,”Mitchell told The Saugus Advocate. “I think this shows that people in town are happy the way things are progressing and I’m

very proud to be a part of it. I feel that there is no limit to what we can accomplish in the coming years,” he said. The five selectmen have been together since March of 2015 – after engineering a successful recall of the four selectmen who fired Crabtree. Panetta, the lone selectman who opposed the town manager’s ouster, later took control of the board with the four “recall advocates” and soon after rehired Crabtree. After serving about eight months together, the board won overwhelming support from vot-

ohnny Marciano credits a poolside conversation he had with a buddy while vacationing in the Bahamas about seven years ago with his decision to give up plumbing and start cutting hair. “At the time, I was at the crossroads of a career

change,” Marciano, 29, recalled in a recent interview. “I wanted to do something different, so I went home and signed up for barbering school. My friend helped me a bit – and that was it … My best friend, Anthony Messina, inspired me to become a barber. He’s the kid I used to work for in Danvers.

has his own barbershop, Messina’s,” he said. Marciano said he loves the barbering business so much that after six years he decided to make a go of it with his own business, too – Marciano’s Barbershop – in a two-story building at 62 Hamilton St. that previously housed a deli. Marciano, a 2006 Saugus High School graduate, played goalie in his senior year on the Sachems varsity hockey team. He’s also a huge New England Patriots fan who has been fortunate enough to land tickets to the Pats’ two Super Bowl victories over the last three seasons. “Before this year, I hadn’t missed a Patriots home game in three years,” Marciano said.

“But this year, I’ve been so busy getting the barbershop opened that the only game I went to was the home opener. I’ve been really busy. I signed the lease for the building on June 21 and the Grand Opening was Sept. 26,” he said. “It’s been a busy year for me. I bought a house in Middleton, got engaged and got this shop opened at the same time,” he said. Tool boxes and air compressors Marciano incorporates some of his passion for sports in his barbershop, with five large flat screen television sets attached to the wall – all tuned in to sports channels. The business logo he had designed includes a motto, “be different,” which is reflected in how Marciano strives to set his business apart from other local barbershops. He uses Husky mechanics tool boxes for the barber stations, and there’s also a red, coiled air compressor hose at each station for blowing loose cut hair off a customer. These are a few features that make Marciano’s different from a lot of barbershops. There are four barber chairs, though Marciano and AJ Aiello of Everett are the lone barbers currently working. “My goal is to fill all of the chairs,” Marciano said. “But I’m going to work til I’m busy before I bring in more barbers. And I think we’re in a good location … There’s plenty of parking and it’s on a busy street,” he said. Marciano said he continues to use his friend, Messina, as a mentor while considering ways to improve the new bar-

U.S. Navy veteran Maurice DiBlasi talks about surviving a torpedo attack that sunk his ship during World War II

Editor’s Note: For this week, we sat down with Maurice DiBlasi and asked him to talk about his close encounter with death during World War II – after he was on a ship that was attacked by a U-130 (a German submarine). With America celebrating Veterans Day tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 11), we also asked him to share his thoughts on what the national holiday means to him. DiBlasi, 97, of Saugus, was a boatswain’s mate second class serving on the U.S.S. Hugh L. Scott transport ship when it was hit by two torpedoes while unloading supplies on Nov. 12, 1942, during the invasion of North Africa. DiBlasi said he jumped into the water after the second torpedo hit the ship, which later sank. There were close to 60 casualties. DiBlasi, a 1938 Revere High School graduate, lived in Revere for about 50 years and served as a firefighter of that city for 31 years. He was credited with helping to save the lives of two women and a cat during the fire of a three-family home. DiBlasi and his wife, Victoria, will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary next week (Nov. 16). They raised four children and have 11 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. DiBlasi has three daughters – Lisa Barras

Q: So, on the Scott you were providing supplies. That was your basic mission? A: Right – and troops – mainly dropping off troops. It was in October that we were headed

into North Africa. My job was to let the Higgins boats – with the Marines and Sailors in them – down into the water to invade.

and Joanne DeLisio, both of Saugus, and Patricia Howell of Wakefield. Some highlights of the interview follow. Q: Maurice, what does Veterans Day mean to you? A: To me, it means soldiers and sailors giving their lives for our beautiful country that we enjoy and live in – the best in the world. And I was proud to go in the Navy and help save our country from the invasions of Germany and whoever was trying to take our freedom away from us. Veterans Day is for everyone in the armed forces who’s played a part in saving this great country. I was proud to be a Navy man and I still am. I loved

it, almost as much as I loved the Fire Department. Veterans Day is a day to recognize everyone who has contributed to protecting this nation. Q: Do you remember when you enlisted in the Navy? A: Yes, I think I enlisted in July of 1942, in Newport, R.I. And from there we went down to Virginia to get training on the Scott (the U.S.S. Hugh L. Scott transport ship) as an invasion ship, and we had three months of training on the Scott with the Higgins boat landings. In October we started in the fleet across the Atlantic Ocean to invade North Africa. The Germans’ Rommel was running rampant down there with his tanks.

ASKS | from page 3 Now, that was the 8th of November. Four days later I asked permission to get out of the gun mount and get myself freshened up a little, because everything was quiet. The invasion was completed. And now we’re taking cargo and supplies into the troops. So I asked permission to get cleaned up, and they gave me permission, so I freshened up and showered, then I went to the mess hall. I asked what we were having. And they told me beef stew. I said, “Beef Stew! I’m

not gonna eat no Beef Stew.”And one of the guy’s told me,“DiBlasi, you better eat it. It may be your last meal.” I’m not sure whether I had the meal or not. But I headed three stories up to the top deck to the gun mount. When the first torpedo hit us, I nearly soiled my pants. I thought I was going to die then, then I went through two structures and the second torpedo hit. I looked over the rail from the high side, but decided I couldn’t jump ship because they hadn’t given the “abandon ship” order yet. Then an officer comes running by, goes down a flight

of stairs and dives into the water. I said to myself, “If it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me.” Then I dove over. To this day … we had a crew of about 700 … but, where I was, there was no one in the water – officers or anybody on that side of the ship where I was. And when I dove into the water, I was thinking to myself, “Mo, this is how you’re going to die.” There was nobody around me. The activity was on the other side of the ship. Q: So you were all by yourself in the water? A: Yeah. I was all alone. I didn’t LETTER FROM THE TOP: Maurice DiBlasi received this letter from then-U.S. Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal about the time he discharging from the Navy.

see the officer that I saw jump in – nobody. Come to think of it, I believe most of the people were off the ship. We had only skeleton crew on at the time, and I think we only lost about 60 men. Q: And then somebody came to rescue you and plucked you out of the water? A: Out in the bay. I figured I was dead in the water and was going to die when I saw a Higgins boat headed toward me. I yelled to them. They picked me up and brought me to Casablanca. From there the Thurston took us back to the states. The Thurston took us to Norfolk, Virginia. Q: So what happened to the Scott? A: Oh, she went down. Q: So, being torpedoed, was that the scariest part of your life? A: I tell you, I nearly soiled myself. When the first torpedo hit us, I was thinking nothing but death. “This is it,” I thought. Q: Do you think about that event a lot in the passing years? Do you have bad memories or bad dreams about it? A: I must have over the years, but now that’s passed. It all has passed. Q: Did you ever hear from your

former comrades? A: There was one guy; he lived in Leominster. We had a meeting in Boston. He came from Leominster. This was right after the war. Other than that, I haven’t heard from anybody. Q: Have you ever had a chance to talk to a school class about your experiences in the Navy? A: Never. Q: Well, what would you tell them if you had a chance to talk to a class? A: I’d tell them to just do the best of their ability. Don’t shirk. Don’t fake it. Do the best of your ability, because that’s all you can ask for. Q: Do you think Veterans Day means as much to kids today as it does to you? A: No, I don’t think it means that much to a lot of kids today, but when I served, it was World War II. The nation was at war. And everyone in this country had to do their part to protect our way of life and the freedoms we enjoy. That’s something that people who lived through World War II don’t take for granted. Q: When you look back at your service with the Navy, what are the positives that you bring away from that time? What are the best things that came out of it for you? A: Clean living and a feeling of pride in your country Q: What do you feel best about your service to your country? A: Being able to put in my little efforts to help do what we did. Q: And being part of “the greatest generation”? A: Yeah. At the time, the little bit I did, I felt helped what we aimed to do. It helped a little bit in our final outcome. Mine was just a drop in the bucket, but I was there and I did my best to fight for my country. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about your service? A: All I’d love to share with my grandchildren or anybody is to do the best you can – that’s all – to the best of your ability. Q: One last story. Tell me about the day when you helped save two people and a cat from a house fire when you were a Revere firefighter. A: We had a house fire at 18 Highland St. I was driving the truck, and we drove around the corner, and the flames were coming out the windows of a three-story family house. … I went up on the ladder where a heavy woman was at the window, and I asked her to fall on my shoulder. And she did. She was burned in the back. And I went down the ladder – one, two, three steps – and I said, “Lady, this is as far as you go this way. I can’t go any farther. And I called the other firefighters to help me pull her down. Well, they grabbed her thighs, and I

ASKS | from page 4 held her underneath her armpits and we walked down the ladder to a waiting ambulance. And that’s the last I ever heard about the woman. Q: Then you had another lady and a cat. Isn’t that right? A: Oh, yes – then I switched the ladder over to another window, and the lady is pointing to a cat. I said, “To hell with the cat.

C’mon.” And I grabbed her by her shorts and I pulled her out of the window. Her name was Walsh. And I never heard anything from her again. Q: And then you went back and got her cat, right? Because the picture from the old newspaper shows you bringing down the cat. A: Oh, I must have gotten the cat, but I don’t remember it. Q: So you saved two lives and a cat in that one fire, and you

have the old pictures to prove it. A: Yeah – but I felt saving a fellow firefighter was more dramatic. Q: Was that on the same day? A: No, that was another fire at a different time. But he never would have made it down. Q: So that’s when you kicked in the door? A: Yes. Q: So how did you become a fireman? Is that something you

just went into after the war? A: No. I opened up a fruit store on Broadway in Revere. I was doing that; that’s how I got on the Fire Department. Ninetynine percent of the guys in the Fire Department were veterans, and the station was right there – across the street. Guys would keep telling me to take the exam because it was a good job. And I said, “Not me. I’ve got no bosses, no clocks to punch. I’m my own boss.” And they kept telling me, “Take the exam. It’s a good job.” I kept telling them, “Not me.” But then I started going with Vicky and I started think differently. And I told myself, “You got to do something. You don’t want to be in a fruit store all of your life.” So I took the exam for the Fire Department, and that’s the second best thing I ever done in my life.

The first one was marrying that girl [Victoria]. Q: Was she your high school sweetheart? A: No. I met her at a Valentine’s Day Party in Revere. And I went with two girls that night, then, all of a sudden, I spotted her and asked her to dance. And that was it: love at first sight. I brought her home and got my kiss that I remember ... Whoo! And I saw sparks – I was in love. And I married her and I had a beautiful home and a family, and she’s a good person. She’s the perfect person for me, and that’s why we’ve lived this long. Q: So that’s the secret to your longevity? A: That’s right – absolutely. Being with Vicky keeps me going. She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.

New infield dedicated at World Series Park A

new infield was recently built at World Series Park. Sports Turf Specialties of Wrentham worked for about a week reconstructing the infield and bringing it back to major league specifications. This will create a perfect infield to start the 2018 baseball season. Park Superintendent Bob Davis said, “After 13 seasons it was time to rebuild the infield. The sand-based infield had sunk over the years. This year seemed like the time to do it since it was in need of repair and the fall is the perfect growing season. We decided to name the infield “The Dorothy Amsden Infield at World Series Park” to show our

appreciation for Dorothy Amsden’s numerous donations over the years. Dorothy is a very generous person who truly believes in trying to make things better for the youth of Saugus.” The plaque recently placed at the park reads: ‘The Dorothy Amsden Infield at World Series Park – The generosity of Dorothy Amsden has made it possible to build this new infield in September 2017.” At the recent unveiling of the plaque, Dorothy said: “This honor is uncanny. I was always very athletic during my youth. I was the only girl who played baseball with the local kids in our back field. Now, at my age, it’s

this week. “I believe the voters appreciate the way this Board works together, as a team, for the betterment of Saugus. We are accountable, focused and determined to do what’s in the best interest of the Saugus residents. Our meetings are professional and courteous – where people treat each other and the public with respect and dignity,” Panetta said. “I am honored and humbled to receive this type of support from the voters. The residents that I have spoken to feel that this Board is engaged with the community, that we are approachable and that we sincerely care about their concerns,” she said. Cicolini finished second in the selectmen’s race with 2,055 votes – 259 votes behind Panetta (2,314). Selectmen elected him to serve as the board’s vice chair over the next two years. “I am elated at the results of the election. I am pleased to know I will continue to serve with such a dedicated group of professionals with a shared vision and passion to move Saugus forward,” Cicolini said in a statement yesterday to The Saugus Advocate. “I am honored to be the Vice Chairman of the Board. I feel every member has equal importance to our success as a community and ensuring the best outcome for our town and its residents. I will be sure to uphold all of the responsibilities associated with this new role to the best of my ability,” Cicolini said. “I don’t see much changing for me as my participation or preparation for each meeting will be the same.

That support has continued two years later. Other major developments in Tuesday’s town elections: • Two newcomers won seats on the five-member School Committee. Marc C. Magliozzi and Lisa M. Morgante joined Committee Chair Jeanette E. Meredith and veteran members Linda N. Gaieski and Elizabeth Ann Marchese. Magliozzi and Morgante filled the seats held by Peter Manoogian, who decided not to run for another term, and veteran member Arthur Grabowski, who was seeking his fifth two-year term on the committee. Morgante finished 377 votes ahead of Grabowski for the fifth seat. • There will be 10 new faces among Saugus’s 50 Town Meeting members. Thirty-nine of the 41 incumbents on the ballot were reelected. Maureen E. Whitcomb, who was completing the unexpired term of a Precinct 4 member who had passed away, won her first two-year term by just four votes over Keith Allen McCabe. • It took just 14 write-in votes for Ryan P. Fisher to win a Town Meeting seat representing Precinct 9, where there were only four candidates on the ballot. Fisher drew one more vote than his three writein opponents drew collectively. • Veteran Housing Authority Member William B. Stewart beat challenger James N. Liberato, Sr., 2,093 to 1,122 votes, to win a four-year term. This year’s election drew a turnout of close to 22 percent – 4,053 of the 18,617 registered voters, according to the Town Clerk’s Office.

Sachems Football team wins second consecutive game, beats Amesbury, 22-6 By Julian Cardillo


he Saugus football team beat Amesbury, 22-6, last Saturday, thanks to some stellar play by the Sachems defense and the standout performance on offense by Marvens Jean and Christian Correia. But Sachems coach Anthony Nalen didn’t go as far as to say it was a complete performance, as was the case in a victory against Pentucket on November 4. “It was certainly good to get the win, but it was a little bit up

and down,” Nalen said. “Our defense had a strong game – executed the game plan. I thought with our offense, we turned the ball over one too many times and committed silly mistakes. We left it later than we should have.” On the positive side, the Sachems have now won two games in a row for the first time this season. They’re 3-6 overall and seem to be putting together a nice run to close out the campaign; just two games remain, including Thanksgiving. Saugus took an early lead

against Amesbury at Stackpole. Jean scored on an 11-yard run in the first quarter to help give the Sachems a 7-0 lead. Jean scored his second touchdown of the day in the third quarter, running 27 yards into the end zone. Q u a r te r b a c k M i k e M a bee, who has emerged as a team leader in his senior year, capped off the scoring with a five-yard QB sneak into the end zone in the second. He connected with Christian Correia on a two-point conversion. Nalen had strong endorse-

ments of Jeans and Correia. “They’ve been our workhorses the last two games,” said Nalen. “And they’re young, only sophomores, so we have them for another two years. We’re excited about that. They’ve really stepped it up on offense for us this season.” Winning consecutive games is a sign that things are moving in the right direction, even if the defense and offense didn’t both play to their potential. Nalen credits Mabee for

his leadership and instructing the team to stay positive when wins were harder to come by earlier this season; Saugus lost six straight to start the year. “There was a point when they were all kind of looking at each other, and he stepped and led,” said Nalen of Mabee. “He’s really grown into a leader.” Saugus play Greater Lowell Tech on the road on Saturday, which is 5-3 overall, and Nalen expects a stiff challenge. “That’s going to be a dif-

Lady Sachems soccer team bows out of state tournament By Julian Cardillo


he Saugus girls’ soccer team’s regular season was a sight to see – but their playoff run ended abruptly. Saugus, which went unbeaten in the regular season, lost to Wayland, 4-1, in the first round of the state tournament. “We didn’t play well: They were fast and physical, and we never seemed to get into a groove,” said Saugus coach Chris Coviello. “For some reason we were a little nervous. I don’t know why – it’s not like we haven’t been in

that setting before.” Wayland opened the scoring after 10 minutes. Saugus tied it up through Allie Kotkowski, who finished a rebound in the 25th minute. But Wayland scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the second half to break Saugus’s back. They added another strike near full-time to ice the result. “We didn’t possess as well as usual – had a few chances in the second half but not an overwhelming amount,” said Coviello. “They came out stronger than we did. Give them

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, November 10, 2017


By Mark Vogler


ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus.

Stand proud, candidates of Saugus Anyone who took the time to run for public office this fall should feel good whether they won or lost. Even a candidate who didn’t do well at the polls helped to at least elevate questions and issues which can only contribute to a better election and a more accountable government. Good public officials will follow through on some of the better ideas which may have been raised in this recent political campaign. It’s all for the betterment of Saugus. That’s what the Democratic process is all about Ballot positioning overrated To all those folks who believe candidates can get an edge by winning a higher position on the election ballot, it’s hard to make a case about that this year. Consider this: Selectman candidate Michael Coller was #1 on the ballot. And he finished a distant eighth place in a field of nine people running for the five seats. Veteran School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski was #1 on the ballot for his office. And he finished a distant sixth place among the seven people running for the five positions. Selectman Jennifer E. D’Eon was in the ninth and final ballot spot. But she finished as the third top vote-getter. She even told me the other night that she didn’t think she was going to get re-elected. School Committee member Elizabeth Ann Marchese was in the seventh and final spot on the ballot for her office. But, she was the second top vote-getter behind School Committee Chair Jeanette E. Meredith. Selectman Scott A. Brazis was #8 on the ballot. He finished fourth in the field of nine candidates. I think when most people go to vote, they read the names of the candidates on the ballot. And they’ll look for somebody they know or feel comfortable with or have confidence in. It ain’t official til the clerk says so I’m one of those old-fashioned guys who would prefer to hang out Election Night at Town Hall, waiting for the Town Clerk to post the results -- even though anyone plugged into social media can get those results a heck of a lot quicker than I can. All any candidate needs is to have a person spotting each of the 10 precincts, making note of the tally sheet that gets posted shortly after the polls close. People are tweeting out the “winners” and “losers” of a given election race before the clerk makes them official -- just by doing the simple math. Of course, there is always the potential for errors in close races that could affect the outcome. And if there is a potential problem with vote counts getting screwed up, the clerk’s office would probably figure it out.

Stayed tuned. Annual SHS Football and Cheer Pancake Breakfast If you love pancakes and want to support your Sachems, here’s an event to mark down. Saturday, Nov. 18, from 8 to 11 a.m., check out the Annual SHS Football and Cheer Pancake Breakfast in the High School cafeteria. Admission is $5.

A healthy attitude Sherri Raftery was one of three Town Meeting members who participated in several Town Meeting sessions over the past year even though she wasn’t an elected member.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of October 30-November 3. PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT (H 3994) House 146-10, approved and sent to the Senate a bill that commits the Bay State to meeting the greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals in the international Paris Climate Agreement, from which President Donald Trump withdrew several months ago. The proposal makes Massachusetts a “nonparty stakeholder” to the agreement and allows state officials to document their emissions reductions efforts via a new online data-gathering tool. “As a millennial, there is no issue that will have a greater impact on my generation and my children’s generation than climate change.” said Rep. Dylan Fernandes (D-Falmouth), the bill’s sponsor. “This legislation sends a message to the nation and the rest of the world that a handful of climate deniers in Washington D.C. do not speak for the people of Massachusetts.” “I voted against the principal of the Massachusetts Legislature engaging in foreign policy and international diplomatic accords, especially when in direct contradiction with federal government policy,” said Rep. Joseph McKenna (R-Webster). “Furthermore, there is nothing

Michael Moore (D-Millbury). “Through improved training, transparency and enforcement of policies, this bill supports initiatives that work to ensure our postsecondary institutions are implementing systems students can trust. The bill also helps to fill the void created by the recent rollback of federal protections.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes

The argument that we cannot achieve low carbon output without tying ourselves to international policy against our own federal government’s will is false.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.

(A “Yes” vote is for funding the $40,000. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes $250,000 FOR CHEFS IN SCHOOL (H 3800) Senate 32-6, overrode the veto of the entire $250,000 for the Chefs in Schools program that brings chefs into school cafeteria kitchens to work with existing staff to create healthier meals that students would find tasty and visually appealing. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $250,000. A “No” is against funding it.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes $350,000 FOR ZOOS (H 3800) Senate 31-7, overrode a reduction of $350,000 (from $4,350,000 million to $4 million) in funding for the nonprofit Commonwealth Zoological Corporation that runs the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston and the Stone Zoo in Stoneham. The

$350,000 cut also included a cut of $100,000 for the Lupa Zoo and Game Farm in Ludlow. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $350,000. A “No” is against funding it.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’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. During the week of October 30-November 3, the House met for a total of 17 hours and eight minutes and the Senate met for a total of 20 hours and 13 minutes.

Born in East Boston and raised in Winthrop, he was the son of the late John and Sara (Turpeinin) Cushman. The day after graduating from Winthrop High School, Richard joined the Boston Harbor Pilots were he safely guided ships through the harbor for 47 years. As an avid outdoorsman, when not working, he was back on the water fishing & enjoying time on his boat with his family. Richard was a member of the Friends of Breakheart Reservation in Saugus and Waterford, ME Fish & Game Club. After retiring in 2002, he was able to focus on all things outdoors both locally & at his cabin in Maine. He spent most days hiking the trails with his walking stick & beloved Portuguese water dog. Affectionately known as “Grampy” by many, his love of the outdoors was only overshadowed by his love of children. He took much pleasure in having taught all of his grandchildren and many others how to appreciate nature & the outdoors. He had been a long time Saugus resident until moving to Lynnfield five years ago. Richard leaves his daughter Heatha Schena and her husband Anthony of Lynnfield; his son Richard Cushman, Jr. of Saugus; four grandchildren, Dale Cushman, Mackenzie, Samuel and Kasey Schena; one sister, Arlene Cohee of Lynnfield; two brothers, George “Bud” Cushman of Wareham and John Cushman of Saugus; his dear friends, the Emery Family of Swampscott and the Cataldo Family of Norwood.
