Gary J. Dascoli
September 24, 1945 ~ October 3, 2022
On October 3, 2022, Gary J. Dascoli (Mr. Dasc) of Everett was called, as he would put it “to the Elysian fields with Achilles.”
He was the most loved and respected man I had ever known. He cultivated this love and respect over the course of his 35-year career teaching world history and humanities at Everett high School. He taught with an unbridled passion that was immediately apparent from minute one of meeting him.
He goes now to be with his mother, Olive, his father, Alfonso and his brother, Johnnie. I’m sure they are already at the dog track! He is survived by his brother, Anthony, his children, Donna and Frank, his son in law, Dan, his daughter in law, Cheryl, his nephew, Anthony and his grandchildren: Alexa, Lucas, Colin and John. I must also mention here the multitude of students whose lives he impacted. You have collectively served to mold the very fabric of his character every bit as much as he served to mold your young, impressionable minds. Thanks to us all for helping to make him the brilliant, funny, vulgar, passionate, and straight-shooting man we all loved. Go now Dad, and rest easy, until we meet again!
His Funeral was held from Salvatore Rocco & Sons Funeral Home, 331 Main Street, Everett on Saturday, October 8 at 9 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Anthony Church in Everett at 10 a.m. Interment was in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.
