Richard L. “Cheeks” PISANI
August 30, 2019


PISANI, Richard L. “Cheeks” of Winthrop, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 30, 2019 surrounded by his family, after complications from heart disease. Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort that he is at rest. He was 58 years old. Born in Boston, he was the cherished son of Loreen M. (MacDonald) Mondello and the late Richard Pisani of Winthrop.

“Cheeks” had a cheerful personality and always made people around him laugh.
He made friends everywhere he went. Despite his illness, he always portrayed a
positive attitude and wanted to help whoever he could. We are beholden to Brown’s Pharmacy for letting him use their store as a meeting place with old and new friends; it was the center of his social life.

Besides his mother, Richard leaves behind his brother Robert A. Pisani and his wife Lisa, his sister Joyce DePippo, his brother Dennis S. Stack and his wife Robin all of Winthrop; his nephews Joseph and Matthew Pisani and Mario Pasco.

Family and friends are invited to share their memories of ”Cheeks” with the family on, Sunday September 8th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at the Maurice W. Kirby Funeral Home. 210 Winthrop St. Winthrop.

Richard’s family extends their heartfelt thanks to the health-care
professionals at The Beth Israel Hospital, Boston, for their care and
commitment and to the staff of Hunt Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in
Danvers for all their kindness during his stay.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the American Diabetes
