William P. Gullotti

August 21, 1949 — January 21, 2023


Mr. William P. Gullotti, of Woburn, formerly of Waltham, died Saturday, January 21, 2023 in his home. He was 73.

Bill was born in Waltham on August 21, 1949, a son of the late Frank and Annette (Landry) Gullotti, and was a graduate of Waltham High School.

In 1980 he married Watertown native Mary C. McCool in Saint Patrick’s Church and the pair made Waltham their home before moving to Woburn four years ago. Together they raised two children, and Bill cherished every moment spent with his four grandchildren.

Bill spent 40 years working as a computer network engineer at the Raytheon Company before retiring.  He was also a dedicated coach for Pop Warner Football and other football, hockey, and softball leagues when his children were young. He was passionate about sports and was a loyal fan of the New England Patriots and all Boston sports teams.

In his free time, Bill enjoyed playing computer video games, and always liked to have a good time. An avid card player, he especially liked kitty whist, and enjoyed playing backgammon. In addition, Bill absolutely loved working on his Boston Globe crossword puzzle every Sunday morning. He will be remembered for his love for his family, his dedication to his work, and his commitment to mentoring young athletes. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

In addition to his wife Mary, he leaves his children, Nicole V. Semenza (Michael) of Reading and William P. Gullotti, Jr. (Janice) of Hudson; his grandchildren, Sophia, Daniella and Ryan Semenza and William P. Gullotti, III; his brother, Paul Gullotti of Hudson, New Hampshire; his half-brother, Frank Gullotti Jr. of Billerica and several nieces and nephews.

He was also a brother of the late Mark Gullotti.
