Gerald Regan Obituary, Death, – Gerald F. “Jerry” REGAN, a resident of Winchester, passed away in a calm and serene manner on March 21. He was surrounded by his devoted family and close friends. He was the dedicated and loving spouse of Christy (Radzevich), with whom he had a marriage that lasted for 25 years, as well as his daughter Kathlyn, whom he loved “to the moon and back.” Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Doris Regan of Malden, as well as his four siblings, Leonora, Marion, Mally, and Joseph Regan. His parents and siblings all passed away before him. In addition to a large number of nieces and nephews, he is survived by his brother-in-law, Robert Dooley, who resides in Melrose.
Jerry was also adored and supported by his loving and extended family, which included his in-laws, Robert and Dorothy Radzevich, Rob Radzevich and his wife Kathleen, as well as three nieces and nephews named Lauren, Lindsey, and Brett Radzevich, who all live in Pittsburgh. Denise Russo of Winchester, who was his devoted caretaker, is also among those he leaves behind.
Jerry was famous for his witty and contagious sense of humor, as well as his intellect, inventiveness, and gentlemanly grace. Jerry started from a modest background and worked his way up to become a partner in DMC Services of Chelsea, Massachusetts. This company offered energy audits and home conservation services to customers in over 40 states through utility companies. In the end, Honeywell, Inc. acquired the company and made it a subsidiary of their own. After that, he moved on to establish a second business, one in which he took great pleasure in the renovation of local homes in the Boston area that possessed charm and good craftsmanship.
Jerry was an avid golfer, a member of the Winchester Country Club, and a former director of the club. He served in the United States Navy (Seabees) during his time in the military. He had a lifetime passion for learning new things, reading, and sailing, and he was an avid learner throughout his entire life. He loved his friends with an intense and genuine loyalty, and they loved him in exactly the same way in return. In addition, Jerry courageously and gladly participated in a study programme at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for almost ten years in an effort to find a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
