Fiorindo “Fred” Antonelli died at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Boston August 4 with his family by his bedside following a stubborn 13 month battle with cancer.

Mr. Antonelli, who lived here much of his life, and who raised his family here, since immigrating from Orsonga, Italy when he was a very young man, was 74.

‘He fought the cancer for 13 months. He never complained to any of us. Not a word about his suffering,” said his son, well-known local businessman Greg Antonelli.

“That’s the kind of man he was. He never wanted to burden his family with his difficulties,” he added.

Kane’s Donuts newest location on route 1. 

It started in 1955…a classic New England town’s love affair with a homemade donut so delicious, 50-year loyalists deem it their go-to spot for launching their day, while destination diners plan vacations around their visits.

Yes, 1955 was the year Kane’s Donuts opened its doors.

Today, amid a sea of sameness from donut shops and breakfast joints that compete with cookiecutter locations, Kane’s is a Massachusetts icon with a steadfast tradition of serving artisanal donuts prepared fresh daily, and made fresh with local ingredients, even the boxes for the donuts are made locally.

Rescued from going the corporate route by Peter and Kay Delios during the 1980’s, they brought back the shops great local reputation. Continue reading Kane’s Donuts
