Obituary

Pittorino, Felix J., “Phil” 81 of Acton, MA died after a short illness on December 29, 2020 at Emerson Hospital. Phil was born in Newton, MA to Josephine (Cappadona) and Joseph Pittorino. He graduated from Waltham High School class of 1958. He is survived by his loving wife Sandra (Sablone) Pittorino and was the devoted father to Stacey Pittorino Page of Acton, and Joe Pittorino and his wife Jonida of Stow. Also a beloved grandfather of Cameron, Jordan, Avery, McKenzie, Julia, Rachel, Felix, Luke, and Bella. Phil was also the dear brother of Nancy Silva of Acton, Gerald Pittorino and his wife Dorothy of Waltham, Linda Pittorino of Groton and the late Joseph Pittorino of Littleton along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.

He had a smile that would light up the room, especially when his grandkids were around. If you asked his grandkids what word they would use to describe “Grampie” there are many: Cameron-fearless, Jordan-humorous, Avery-loving, Kenzie-hard working, Julie-happy, Rachel-dependable, Felix-persevering, Luke-ice cream.

Following in the family tradition Phil joined the land development business with his two brothers, later expanding into three successful companies. Phil’s passion for land development led him to many extraordinary ventures including developing property throughout New England and the acquisition of everything from castles to golf courses. Ultimately he transitioned out of contracting into a full time venture in the golf course industry.

With a relentless work ethic, and through tireless hours, Phil developed Wedgewood Pines Country Club from the forest it was to what Wedgewood is today- a family business with a family membership. His greatest joys in life were his children, grandchildren and wife along with the Wedgewood employees and members who he also considered family. When nobody thought it could be done, Phil bought it, built it and developed it into one of the best golf courses in Massachusetts.

He will live forever in our hearts.

Phil was a wonderful gentlemen . He came to Legend Cafe every day for his poached eggs and toast . He would respond when asked how he was doing? " I'm d..ngood." The patrons and staff of the cafe felt his gentle nature and his sense of humor daily. He was a good friend and loved to talk politics and cars. He will truly be missed.

Phil,
Chats in your office, help with my lawn, broken extension cord & your head slightly tipped with THAT grin that I'm sure that anyone who knows you, will remember.... & smile. "You don't know the whole golf course?! Come on, we're going now!" An whiskey with you and Sandra in the family room with an old western or other old movie, Friends, Taxi or just the news playing on the TV. I'll certainly miss our friendship, visits, your terrific smile & wish you peace. Hoping that the blessing of memory serves as comfort to the whole family.
With love, Lesley

Phil Pittorino was a very special man. Every loving memory that I have of Phil comes attached with a smile. When ever I was lucky enough to see Phil at Wedgewood, he would always stop what he was doing to say hello which ALWAYS included his genuine infectious smile. Phil’s warm greetings always made you feel like he was one of your great childhood friends. My conversations with Phil always included four things he was always VERY VERY PROUD to talk about - Stacy - Joe -Grandchildren - Wedgewood
Phil was a man of many qualities. The one I think I admired most about Phil was, even though he was a man of accomplishments and the owner of the Golf Coarse, Phil possessed a lovable unpretentious attitude and personality. Truly a Man’s - Man.
May God Bless-Rest In Peace Phil.
One more thing Phil, when your watching down onto the Golf Coarse from above, I could really need some help with my slice.
