Clifford D. Whynott, Sr.

Clifford D. Whynott, Sr., 75, husband of Florence (Arena) Whynott, died Thursday March 3, 2011 in his Ipswich home following a long illness.

Born in Somerville July 29, 1935, son of the late Francis D. and Matilda R. (Katka) Whynott, he was raised in Saugus, a graduate of Saugus public schools. As a young man he was employed at several auto dealerships before opening C & C Auto Parts in Beverly in 1970. In June of 2010, he expanded his business to include the Ipswich NAPA store which he has owned and operated with his two sons.

Some of Cliff’s favorite moments were spent at his camp that he built in Bridgton, Maine.  There he watched his children grow up, and more recently enjoyed watching his grandchildren swim, water ski, tube, fish, and sail.  He also loved taking a sunset cruise with family and friends around Woods Pond.

Cliff loved coaching his boys on the Ipswich Youth Hockey, where he served as President of the Association. He also took great pride in gardening and decorating his house and yard for the various holidays.

The family would like to thank Dana Farber and Hospice of the North Shore for the loving care they provided.

Whynott and his wife Amy; three grandchildren, Lauryn, Tyler and Olivia Whynott, all of Ipswich and several nephews and nieces. He was the brother of the late Robert Whynott formerly of NH.
