    I was thinking about Marty and found this. I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of the big man. I always enjoyed his company. I was away last year on a sabbatical in the desert and never heard of your father’s passing. Please know I will remember him in my prayers. I hope you are both well.

    Dear Marty and Theresa, I was so sorry to see your fathers obituary in tonight’s Woburn Times. I fondly remember you both and your dad as neighbors on Eastern Ave. Cliff passed away nearly a year ago, and I know he respected your father very much. One year your dad sent over a huge tin of popcorn for our kids at Christmas. They were so delighted! His gentleness and kindness will always be remembered. Sending our thoughts and prayers as well as our deepest condolences. Mary

    • Theresa Popoloski says:

      Mary, I’m sorry I just read your comment here, but I wanted to respond. I’m so sorry to hear of Cliff’s passing, also, and send my condolences. I remember you all well and I know my dad respected Cliff, too. It’s been so long, but I can’t imagine the kids all grown up! I hope you are all doing well and thank you so much for your comments. Theresa Popoloski

    Sorry for your loss. Mr. P. was a great guy – we went to several Woburn High events – he was always there for his kids!
