Read more about the life story of Karl and share your memory.
Karl Anthony Cabucio, 57, of Fall River, passed away on August 4, 2023, after a courageous fight against Spindle Cell Laryngeal cancer.
Karl was born in Chelsea, MA on September 11, 1965, to Doris C. Cabucio (Reddy) and the late Walter I. Cabucio. Karl was raised in Assonet, MA, graduating from Apponequet Regional High School in 1983. He went on to study at Johnson and Wales University where he earned a Master's Degree in Business /Hotel Management.
Karl’s early career after college was spent in the hotel management industry, which he loved, but found his true passion when he changed paths and became a teacher. He loved living in Fall River due to the rich history of the city and family roots tied to the city. Karl’s love for history translated most in his Victorian-style home he had been restoring for many years and his first teaching position as a high school history teacher. After many years he decided to take his knowledge of business and transition to teach Business Technology at Diman Technical High School, Bristol Community College, and his final years at East Bridgewater High School.
During his final weeks, he received so many messages from former students who wanted to make sure he knew how much he inspired them and they appreciated him. This gave him great joy.
Karl loved his red Jeep Wrangler, with its signature license plate ‘Caboos’, following the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots. He was a very devoted son to his mother Doris.
Karl is survived by his sister Helen Clarke, and brother-in-law Bob, who he considered one of his brothers. Brothers, Stephen, Jimmy, and his wife Anne, Walter, and his wife Tracy, and Matthew, and his wife Melissa, as well as 13 nieces and nephews, 5 great nieces and nephews.
Our family would like to thank all of the East Bridgewater school district for their continued support as well as Karl’s healthcare providers at Mass Eye and Ear, Southcoast Health/ Charlton Memorial Hospital, Southcoast VNA Hospice, and especially the nursing staff on Atwood 5 at Charlton Memorial Hospital, who cared for Karl during his final weeks. Thank you to the Sisters of Mercy who have prayed for him during this battle.
