It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dr. Lou Giamarco, a beloved father, grandfather, brother-in-law, and friend, on August 30th, 2023. Lou peacefully departed this world, leaving behind a legacy of love, wisdom, and kindness.
Dr. Giamarco was born in Milford, Massachusetts, to Atillio L. Giamarco and Phylis E. Buscone.
After his father’s passing he was adopted by his step Dad John Adams. Lou's journey began on April 24th, 1933. From an early age, he exhibited a thirst for knowledge and an unwavering dedication to serving others, qualities that would define his remarkable life.
He is survived by his two children Matteo and Melanie, his three grandchildren Isabella, Abrianna and Luca and daughter-in-law, Christine McKenna.
Lou was a loving father to his children, Melanie Giamarco and Matt Giamarco. He was not only a father but also a mentor, instilling in them the values of hard work, integrity, and compassion. His wisdom and guidance will continue to shape their lives and the lives of his three cherished grandchildren, Isabella, Abrianna, and Luca Giamarco, whom he adored beyond measure.
Lou's love goes beyond to his extended family, including brother-in-law, Michael Fisher, and sisters-in-law, Barbara and Dianne Fisher and his deceased brother-in-law Robert Fisher, Mother-in-Law Mildred Fisher and Father-in-Law Abraham [Red] Fisher. Their close-knit bond was a testament to the strength of family connections and many nieces and nephews.
He attended Milford High School, then went on to graduate from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy. After MCP, he attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he met his true partner in Frances Giamarco. Their love was a beacon of light, a testament to the enduring power of devotion. Although Frances preceded him in death, their love story remains etched in the hearts of all who knew them. They were married for 62 years.
Dr. Lou enjoyed helping others and served on the Wakefield Board of Health. He also held free sessions at the Wakefield Public Library where he counseled high school teenagers on college and career choices. Dr. Lou was a beloved Little League announcer for the Town of Lynnfield for seven years, a “job” which he thoroughly enjoyed. He was a quintessential and avid Red Sox fan who attended many games at Fenway Park in the 600 Club. He was a devout Christian and attended weekly services at St. Anthony’s Shrine in Boston.
He enjoyed traveling internationally and visited many countries with his wife, including China, the Soviet Union, Europe, and an annual trip to Aruba. One of his greatest joys was being a Grandfather to his three grandchildren. He also loved dancing the jitterbug, singing Karaoke and playing tennis.
Throughout his life, Lou was known not only for his dedication to family but also for his commitment to education and service. As Dr. Lou Giamarco, he made a profound impact as a Pedodontist and Orthodontist, touching countless lives with his expertise, compassion, and unwavering commitment to excellence.
In his memory, let us carry forward the values that Lou held dear: love, knowledge, and service to others. As we say our final goodbyes, let us remember him not with sadness but with gratitude for the remarkable life he lived and the enduring love he leaves behind.
Visitation for relatives and friends will be held at the McDonald Funeral Home, 19 Yale Ave., Wakefield on Wednesday September 6 from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. His Funeral Service will be held at the funeral home on Thursday September 7 at 11:00 a.m. Interment, Lakeside Cemetery, Wakefield.
May Dr. Lou Giamarco's soul find eternal peace, and may his memory continue to inspire us all.
