Gary B. passed away.
Gary was born on December 31, 1954, to the late Rocco DiGiantomaso, formerly of Walpole, Massachusetts, and Marilyn (Larsen) Greenough of Hopkinton, Massachusetts, where Gary spent most of his childhood and attended high school. He will be greatly missed for his kind and friendly nature, his broad interests and curiosity, his sly wit, his perfectionism, his love of music and the Northern Patriots, and of course his Christmas decorations.
In addition to being a lifelong guitarist and music lover, Gary was adept at many things. In his profession as an industrial maintenance electrician, he was a talented problem-solver and was also skilled with machinery and woodwork. Like many, he first developed his meticulous mechanical skills by working on cars throughout the late 1960s and 1970s in his parents’ garage. Also talented in drawing and illustration, Gary can be a master at anything he sets his hands and mind to.
In 2013, after living in various locations in southern New Hampshire for many years, Gary settled on his Townsend, Massachusetts property that he tended with care and his discerning eye for detail, enjoying many nights by the fire pit.
Working as an electrician as a teen, Gary has gained a variety of experiences in related industry fields. Later, after spending many years working first in plastic extrusion, then injection molding and blow molding facilities, including Amcor in Manchester, New Hampshire, Gary earned a reputation as a sought-after industrial electrician. In 2006, Gary and a team of manufacturing specialists were hired by an upstate New York water bottling company to rebuild their failed bottling operation. Most recently, Gary has been employed since 2011 at Alpha Wire in Leominster, Massachusetts.
Gary leaves behind his mother, Marlene Greenough of Hopkinton, MA, his brother Richard Carmichael of Franklin, MA, and his brother Jeffrey Carmichael and his wife Lucy Stamp of Dummerston, Vt. He was survived by his brother, Christopher Carmichael.
The Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at Callanan Cronin Funeral Home, 34 Church St, Hopkinton, MA.
