Gerald “Jerry” T. Govostes, 80 years of age, of Orient Heights, East Boston, formerly of Woburn, passed away on Monday, November 2, 2020. Cherished son of the late Theodore “Ted” and Rose Ann (McManus) Govostes. Beloved husband of Dorothy (Portrait) Govostes. Loving father of Gerald Govostes Jr. and his wife Vanessa of Quincy.

Brother in law of Annemarie Young and her husband Joseph, and George Portrait and his wife Evelyn. Sister in law of the late Camille Portrait. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Jerry was a machinist by trade. He worked at Electronics Corporation of America (ECA) in Cambridge, MA for many years as a Group Leader in the Drill Press Division before ECA's closing in the late 1980's. He was also employed for many years as a private contractor for Security Services at U.S. Coast Guard-Boston Support Services until his retirement.
