Remembering Jerry Remy: Visiting hours for Red Sox legend in Waltham

WALTHAM, Mass. — On Thursday afternoon, Red Sox fans and supporters of the late Jerry Remy are invited to visiting hours scheduled to start at 2 p.m.

Remy was a Massachusetts native who played for the Red Sox for seven seasons, coached in Boston, and spent decades as a broadcaster before passing away last weekend.

A large crowd is expected.

When: Thursday, November 4 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Where: Mary Catherine Chapel of Brasco & Sons Memorial, located at 773 Moody Street in Waltham.

Many Red Sox fans grew up watching Remy on local and national broadcasts. He was known for his sense of humor and insightful in-game analysis. Remy’s fame grew with the team’s success anchored by Red Sox World Series titles in 2004, 2007, 2013, and 2018.

In a statement earlier in the week, Remy’s family said the following of his time with the team:

“Jerry lived and breathed Red Sox baseball. Playing for his hometown team was a dream come true, and to have the opportunity to have a second career as the voice of the Red Sox was all that he could have asked for.

A private gathering for Remy’s family and close friends is scheduled for November 5 from 5-8 p.m.
