Christopher Andrew DeGrazia, age 85, loving husband for 67 years this coming January to Gloria M. (Diotte) DeGrazia, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI. Born in Boston, MA, on Sunday, June 20, 1937, Christopher was the son of the late Pasquale and Camela (Copoza) DeGrazia.
Chris grew up in Saugus, MA. He attended Saugus High School before moving to New Bedford, MA, where he finished high school. He served his country as a member of the United States National Guard. He and his wife Gloria were residents of Freetown, and Lakeville for forty plus years. Christopher owned Superline Transportation and Brooks and Eaton Express.
Chris loved working in his yard, which included “burn parties” with his grandsons, and cookouts with the kids. He also was a huge football fan; his favorite was Norte Dame. He loved making furniture for his grandchildren and children after he retired. You could always find him talking with neighbors while meticulously tending his lawn. People would stop and ask him what company took care of the lawn. Chris and Gloria loved going to Florida, he would go to the Tiki Bar every day. The Yacht Club in Cape Coral, where he and Gloria spent 20 years was another favorite of theirs. They also spent many years in New Hampshire with Betty and Johnny who was like a brother to him. Chris and Gloria are members of St. John Neumann Church in East Freetown.
