Obituary for Joseph R. Ferraro

BILLERICA – Joseph R. Ferraro, age 88, beloved husband of the late Patricia A. (Lindstrom) Ferraro died Thursday at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center after a brief illness.

He was born in Boston, August 16, 1932, a son of the late Giuseppe and Margaret (Ippolito) Ferraro and lived in East Boston before moving to Billerica in 1968.
