David P. Angelico, 76, of Hubbarston and formally of Southborough, died on December 28, 2022. He was the son of the late Edward Angelico and the late Dorothy “Dottie” V. (Bertonassi) Angelico, and a 1964 graduate of Algonquin Regional High School in Northborough. David was a US Navy veteran and entered the Navy during the Vietnam war. From 1977 to 2009 he was a Senior Engineer, Design Assurance Engineering at Bose Corporation in Framingham. David used his talent and expertise to build his log home in the woods of Hubbardston.
David loved nature and the outdoors. He considered himself a photographer, woodworker, wood turner, & skilled home shop machinist. “I can fix almost anything mechanical given enough time. I like all types of machines and machinery that can produce something.” he remarked.
Dave had a pristine workshop, and regularly created, recreated, repaired and repurposed items, and was always there to help on carpentry projects with just the right tool. When asked what he was up to he recently said: “I’m currently restoring an antique 24" band saw, scroll saw and an old industrial drill press reclaimed from the local recycling center.”
Photojournalism captured his wondering eye, and he could usually be found with his camera always on the ready. From lady slippers to sunsets to portraits, he enjoyed every aspect of the art form.
With every project, David’s attention to detail and care in upkeeping his tools, was perfection. He was naturally the right fit for his position in quality control at Bose. Quality was his middle name.
Gregarious, he attended many get-togethers and was not shy to participate in whatever frivolity ensued. Of all the things he liked to do, being with people was what he loved most.
David lost his battle with cancer on December 28th, at his home with loved ones at his bedside. He will always be remembered as generous, kind and a true gentleman; one lost too soon.
David is survived by his siblings, Edward Angelico and his wife Joanne of Marlborough; Mary Kemp of Northborough; Daniel Angelico and his wife Allison of Boston; many nieces and nephews and one godchild.
In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his brother Kenneth Angelico,
