Cartwright Funeral Homes


SUGHRUE, Dennis F. of Braintree, died at home on January 18, 2019, surrounded by his loving wife and children, at 83 years of age. Dennis was born and raised in Brookline. After graduating from Brookline High School, he served in the U.S. Army at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. After military service, he worked for 35 years at Boston Edison Company as a mechanic, primarily at the L Street Station in South Boston. He was deeply loved by his family, all of whom survive him: his wife of 60 years, Joan (Bishop) Sughrue; his children, Kathleen Aarons and her husband, Gary, of Windham, New Hampshire; John Sughrue and his wife, Marlene, of Dallas, Texas; and Dennis M. Sughrue, of Brooklyn, New York. He was adored by his grandchildren: Amanda Giunta and her husband, Lee, of Boston; Emily Aarons of Newton; Jonathan Aarons, of Marlboro; and Connor Patrick Dennis Sughrue of Dallas. He will be deeply missed by his sister, Margaret (Sughrue) Flood, of Brookline, many nieces and nephews, and the life-long friends from Edison who survive him. Dennis was a devoted family man, a tireless and conscientious worker, an avid reader, a passionate student of history and a proud Bostonian. We will miss everything about him: his intelligence, his kindness, his wit and, not least, his beautiful blue eyes. A visitation period will be held Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 9:00 to 10:00 AM in the Cartwright Venuti Funeral Home, 845 Washington Street, Braintree, Thursday, January 24, 2019 followed by a Funeral Service at 10:00 AM. Relatives and friends respectfully invited. Burial at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in West Roxbury. Memorial contributions may be made in his name to the Hospice of the South Shore, 30 Reservoir Park Dr., Rockland, MA 02370
