James M. Bolack, 62, of Grafton


James M. BolackGrafton – James “Red” M. Bolack, 62, passed away July 27, 2022 at Rhode Island Hospital following a brief illness.

He leaves his loving family; his parents Eva (Benoit) and Francis Bolack, his sisters Tracy Jolie and her husband David and Diane Caputo and her husband Lance, his brother David Bolack and his wife Trish, his many nieces and nephews; Crystal Wypyszinski, Madison and Olivia Jolie, and Arielle, Jordana, Justina, Chelsea, Lauryn, Leonard, Davis and Clark Caputo and great nephew Robert and great niece Amanda.

Red was born October 2, 1959 in Worcester, MA and was a life long resident of Grafton. Red lived life on his terms, was a free soul who savored the simple things in life and those close to him were fortunate enough to experience them with him; time on the water with fishing poles in hand or maybe picking up essentials at yard sales around town. Work never defined him, though his time managing the shopping plaza his family owned in North Grafton was always first and he did spend several years driving a truck for Waste Management as well.

All are welcome to gather with Red’s family and friends Monday August 1, 2022 from 10am-12pm at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536 followed by the celebration of his Funeral Mass at 12:30pm at St. Philip’s Church on West St. in Grafton. He will then be laid to rest at St. Phillip’s Cemetery in Grafton.

In lieu of flowers please remember Red with a donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital at www.StJude.org.
