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.
