Obituary of S. Richard Tringale

S. Richard “Doodie“ Tringale, age 96, of Stoneham and formerly of Lexington and the West End of Boston, died peacefully Thursday afternoon at Lahey Clinic in Burlington on May 7, 2020. Richard was the loving husband to his beloved Anna (Bono) Tringale. He was born in the West End of Boston to the late Domenic and Agata (Bussichella) Tringale. When he finished school, Richard served with the United States Navy aboard the USS Shaw (DD-373) and received a Purple Heart for his service. After his Navy service he worked in MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, and always had stories to tell his grandchildren about the interesting projects he worked on. Richard lived life to the fullest and had a great passion for cooking - never missing a chance to make Sunday sauce for his family. On Friday nights you could always find him at the dance hall, well into his 90’s. His biggest passion of all was electrical work. He loved working on projects for friends and family, and was willing to teach anybody who wanted to learn. He was incredibly generous and always tried to help everyone. Richard was the father of Vincent Tringale and his wife Aksana of Valencia, California; Richard Tringale and his wife Beverly of Lexington; and Daniel Tringale and his wife Joanne of Lexington. He was also an attentive, loving grandfather to Mikael Tringale, Daniel Tringale, Daniel Ryan Tringale, Jennifer Tringale, and Nicholas Tringale and 2 great grandchildren, Thomas and James Tringale. Father of the late Domenic Tringale and his late wife Gitte Tringale, formerly of Chelmsford. Due to COVID-19, a small family service was held followed by burial in Westview Cemetery, Lexington.
