John Pacillo, Jr.

August 10, 1930 — October 31, 2020

John Pacillo, Jr.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of John Pacillo Jr., ninety years of a life well lived. John died on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers.

John was born August 10, 1930 in Boston MA. He was a resident of Peabody MA at the time of his death; however, he had been a longtime resident of Wakefield, MA where he raised his family.

John is survived by his beloved wife of 69 years Rose, his two children Catherine and John III, John's wife Donna; six grandchildren Joanna, Joshua, Jennifer, Christen, JT. and Alex and twelve great grandchildren Vanessa, Jordan, Toby II, Ella Catherine, Lily Rose, Fia, Landon, Ella, Paxton, Bodhi, Iver and another granddaughter expected soon.

Family and friends alike enjoyed John's sense of humor, laugh and loving nature. During his career, he was proud to be part of an advanced team that developed the heart balloon used in today's heart bypass surgeries. Knowing that this achievement saved countless lives was especially fulfilling for John.
He was also a proud supporter of Toys for Tots, Wounded Veterans, Suffolk Downs and our community fire and police departments.

His funeral will be held at the McDonald Funeral Home, 19 Yale Ave., Wakefield on Wednesday at 12 noon. Visitation for relatives and friends will be held prior to the service from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

While we invite those, who knew and loved John to attend, we are especially aware of the concern surrounding Covid-19. Social distancing and masks will be observed at all times. We urge everyone to stay safe and make the choice best for themselves.

In Lieu of flowers contributions may be made in John's name to the Peabody Council on Aging Peter A. Torigan Senior Center 75R Central Street Peabody, MA 01960, or visit www.peabodycoa.org
