Obituary for William B. Drago

GRAFTON: William B. “Bill” Drago, 91, passed away at home Thursday November 23, 2023 following an illness. His wife of 59 years, Jean (Hurley) Drago predeceased him in 2016. Bill leaves his children Vincent “Jimmy” Drago, John Drago, and Janice Arrigo and her husband Glenn and their children Tyler, Brooke and Scott, his sister Rosalie Iannessa and several nieces and nephews.

Bill was born in Boston February 5, 1932, son of the late Josephine (Toscano) and Vincent Drago. His roots were in Somerville, MA where he graduated from high school. He served proudly in the United States Army in Korea and following his return home he worked at the family business, a bakery owned and operated by his father Vincent. He then found himself in Grafton and settled there with his wife Jean where they lived happily for many years. He worked in sales at Ruby Marine in Grafton and was dedicated to his citizenry in town where he volunteered his time at The Grafton Senior Center and championed for veterans in town on numerous projects.
