Below is an obituary from Nichols Funeral Home:

WILMINGTON, MA — David Gennetti, age 60, a lifelong resident of Wilmington, passed away after a long illness on October 20, 2020.

David was born in Stoneham, MA on September 12, 1960, to the late Daniel and Dorothy (Spadafora) Gennetti.

David worked as a carpenter and later as a technical instructor for Comcast for many years. He became involved in Wilmington Youth soccer and coached his sons during their youth soccer days. David loved cooking, especially grilling and using his smoker, fishing, gardening and riding his Harley with The Enforcers. He also enjoyed flying his drone and photography. Most importantly he loved spending time with his large family and friends who could always count on him providing the laughs from his silly antics.

David is survived by his wife of 37 years, Nancy Bolduc Gennetti, devoted father to Miranda Schnitz and her husband Mike of Barren Springs, VA; his son Luke and his fiancé Jade Thornicroft of Billerica; and the late Matthew David Gennetti.

David was the beloved brother William Gennetti and his wife Cathy, Barbara Gennetti, Janice Gennetti and her husband Ray Owens, all of Wilmington; John Gennetti of Tewksbury, and recently deceased Daniel Peter Gennette. He was also the nephew of Salvatore “Butch” Gennetti of Malden. David is also survived by many nieces and nephews who lovingly called him “U.D.” David also leaves behind his beloved dog Scout.
