Vincent J. Naccarato, Esq., passed away at L&M Hospital on Thursday, December 30, 2021 at the age of 80. He was the husband of the late Elizabeth “Betsey” (Mayock) Naccarato.
He is survived by his son James V. Naccarato and wife Darellee of Jacksonville, Fla.; his daughter Courtney E. Serra and her husband Sylvester (Trace) C. of Westerly; five grandchildren, Conor, Quinn and Kelsi Naccarato, Jake and Addison Serra; his sister Virginia (Ginny) Miller and her husband Melvin of Bel Air, MD, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Born in Westerly, he was the beloved son of the late James and Flora Naccarato. He attended Westerly High School before continuing his education at Boston College and Boston University Law School. After being admitted to the bar in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, he settled in Westerly where he was an attorney in private practice for over 50 years. He served as the Town Solicitor for Westerly in 1977 and was the legal counsel for the Dunn’s Corners Fire District for over 40 years. He was appointed to the Board of Directors at Dime Bank in Norwich CT and served in this capacity for almost 10 years, retiring in 2013.
Vincent was a dedicated and well-respected attorney who enjoyed helping others and giving back to the community. He volunteered his time holding various board positions over his career, coaching Little League Baseball, was a Big Brother with the Big Brothers of Rhode Island, and one of founding members of the Paul E Trombino Foundation in Westerly.
He was a true gentleman with a big heart and a wonderful sense of humor. An avid New England sports fan, he followed the Boston Celtics and New England Patriots, but his true passion was the Boston Red Sox. He is likely one of the few lifelong residents of Westerly who didn’t care much for our beaches or ocean, but instead you could find him at Winnapaug Golf Course where he was a member for several years.
The family would like to thank Ellyn Cardillo for her love and companionship over the past years. Thanks also to Nkosinathi Mkhwanazi for his support and dedicated care .
The family's sincere gratitude is extended to the nurses, doctors, and staff at L&M Hospital in the ICU, CCU and 5th floor who took such amazing care of him these past few weeks. Your kindness and compassion will always be remembered
