John Maggio

John Anthony Maggio, 48, passed away on July 22, 2015 at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital surrounded by his family. He was the beloved son of the late Maureen “Mimi” Maggio (Snow) and estranged father, Paul F. Maggio. He was predeceased by his loving grandparents, Robert and Mary Snow. He is survived by his brother, Paul Maggio; sister, Denise Hewins; sister, Robyn Basford and her husband and children; Uncle Robert Snow and Aunt Lynn; and many nieces and nephews.

John was loved by his longtime girlfriend, Danielle Zampitella and their son, Giovanni. He leaves behind daughters, Tanya Maselek and her husband Jay, Kelly Coleman, Kayla Coleman and her fiancé, Chris and Talia; and sons, Jacob and John, Jr.; as well as Patrick, who preceded his father in death. He also leaves behind two loving grandsons, Aiden and Gabriel. John had a passion for tattoos and helping those in need. He was always willing to give his last penny to those less fortunate, always remembering where he came from. He had a tough exterior but loved all his children, and those in his life, with a conviction. John spent his last eight years devoting his life to his sobriety. He worked hard at becoming a better person and will be greatly missed.  


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    I will always remember your warm hugs, gentle kisses and the love that you had for each and everyone of your children. I was lucky enough to have seen past what others condemned you for. I was lucky to have gotten to know the real you! I love you dad, and my life will never be the same without you in it. But I have some of the best people looking out over me and your grandson. You taught me how to love with such conviction and passion. Thank you for loving me so much and never stopping from letting that be known. You truly were a good man with a good heart and you are my hero for so many reasons. I know deep within myself that you have truly found peace. RIP daddy, Aiden and I love you so so much!

    John….or as i called you all these years “Jace” or just “brother” i will miss you so much. I last saw you only a few months ago….you were in good spirits, or trying to be. You always had the best advice for me…I loved talking to you about what was going on in my life with my sobriety (now coming up on 7 yrs this sept!) I KNOW YOU’RE VERY PROUD!!! I cherished our long talks about me being a new dad, sobriety, and just life in general. Your advice and wisdom was like no other to me because i knew everything i was going thru…you already had been there. I loved playing with Giovanni, he’s such a great kid and i could see you loved him so,so much! As well as your daughters whom you very frequently spoke about. Ill miss you brother….im sad we didnt get to do that small tattoo we always spoke about….but hey…it’s all good…thanks for all the support you gave me, the big blow up rubber duck you gave me for my daughter when she was born….man, you were truly one of a kind! Until we meet again Jace…..Rest in Peace brother!! No more pain…i know you’re at peace….
