He then worked with Local 223 Construction Workers Union and again would tell family, friends or stranger that he was a part of Boston's Big Dig project.

A lover of all things Irish he listened regularly to the Irish hour on Saturday afternoons and would take in the live music, good craic, a pint and the camaraderie of all gathered at any of the pubs in Dorchester and Boston. A familiar face in his much loved Savin Hill neighborhood he could be seen regularly walking Dorchester Avenue.

In addition to his parents he is predeceased by his three children, Maureen Margaret Naughton, Michael Patrick Naughton and baby Naughton; siblings, Josie Naughton, Billy Naughton and Mary Ruddy.
