Pedro Nunez, a member of the Paresky Commons dining team, passed away on February 2 after working as a chef at Paresky for more than 35 years. The Andover community will remember Nunez for his smile and kindness, according to “The Gazette.”

“[Nunez was] a member of ‘Los Trinitarios,’ a Dominican Cultural Club. Pedro was a lifelong, die-hard Red Sox fan and sports fan. He loved Dominoes, pool, music, dancing, and karaoke singing. He will be remembered for his great jokes and amazing storytelling,” said the obituary for Nunez available on the Farrah Funeral Home website.

Serving as a mentor, Nunez is survived by his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild, as well as nephews, nieces, and friends, according to the obituary. His funeral was held on February 9 in Lawrence. The Chaplaincy will hold a virtual Service of Remembrance to honor Nunez, as well as the recent passing of two other Andover community members, Emily Trespas, Instructor in Art, and Shawn Dalton, a groundskeeper.
