FRAMINGHAM – Louis J. Ablondi, Jr.,64 and a lifelong resident of Framingham, died peacefully at home in the comfort and care of his beloved wife, Cathy, on Wednesday, September 2, 2020.
Born and raised in Framingham, he was the son of the late Ines (Pascucci) and Louis J. Ablondi, Sr.
After graduating from Framingham South High School in 1974, Louis started his career at Fantoni, Inc. working his way up to Carpenter Foreman and attaining his Supervisor License. There he oversaw the construction of many bridges, retaining walls, and parking structures.
Upon leaving Fantoni, Louie worked for ET&L Corporation for the last 20 years of his career where he managed many high-profile projects, including the Sagamore Flyover & the Methuen Route 93 Rotary Project.
He was a proud member of the Brotherhood of Carpenters for over 45 years. Louie enjoyed the camaraderie of his team and took tremendous pride in the work each day. He commonly rose as early as 3 a.m. to get out to the job site and spent his evenings and weekends pouring over blueprints and plans.
In his leisure time, Louie enjoyed fishing, boating, and spending time with his family. Louie was known for his generosity, understated class, and attention to detail, which positively impacted everyone and everything he touched.
He is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Catherine M. (Belmore) Ablondi of Framingham, his sons, Scott Gordon and his wife Dee of Laguna Niguel, CA, Joel Gordon and his wife, Monoshini of Sudbury, and Louis Ablondi of Brighton.
He is also survived by his grandchildren, Evan, Alyssa, Aarman, Arav, Chloe and Aayan Gordon; his sister, Elaine and her husband Gerhard Schmidt of Chestnut Hill; niece Jennifer Morrison and her husband Jason and their son, Jake of Honolulu, HI.
It was Louie’s wish to ensure all those he loved would remain safe during the pandemic, so there will be no wake and the mass will be closed to all but immediate kin.
However, all are encouraged to spiritually be with Louie’s family by viewing his “live-streamed” funeral Mass celebrated on Friday, September 4, 2020 at 10 a.m. This may be viewed by logging on to: https://youtu.be/UpPTqZMk6OQ
