Waltham – David F. Aiello, of Waltham, died at home on Sunday, February 14, 2021. He was 29.
David was born in Waltham on June 5, 1991 and was a graduate of Waltham High School. After that he worked for CRA Mechanical alongside his father and best friend, Joe. The two were constant companions with David doing the ladder work and Joe being the patient teacher. He loved his profession doing HVAC work with wonderful co-workers and customers.
He was an intelligent young man whose personality was comical, goofy and friendly. Dave had a strong passion for sports. His favorites were tennis and, of course, hockey . . . "the coolest game on earth".
Most of all he loved and cherished his sweet and precious daughter, Gabriella, and his darling niece, Charlotte.
In addition to his daughter and niece, he leaves his parents Joseph and Tami (Fallo) Aiello of Waltham; his brothers, Michael Aiello (Loren) and Kevin Aiello, all of Waltham; his grandmother, Rose Aiello of Waltham; his aunts, Doreen DeVincent (Jim) and Sandra Gardner (Steve) and several cousins.
David was also a grandson of the late Frank Aiello and John and Anne Fallo.
Funeral services will be private.
Memorial donations may be made to Fr. Tom DiLorenzo, In Season & Out of Season Homeless Ministry, P.O. Box 602, East Boston, MA 02128.
Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:
During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.
Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.
These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.
When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the venue where they are held should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.
It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.
Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.
Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.
During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance. Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
