John Ciccolini Obituary

John Ciccolini, 70 years old, of Leominster MA . died peacefully surrounded by family and friends on Saturday, January 13th. He joins his father, Flaminio Ciccolini, in heaven. He is survived by his wife Carol Ciccolini of Leominster MA and his daughters Daniela (Matthew) Romanowicz of Fairhaven MA, Stephanie (Albert) Marquez of Peabody MA, stepsons Adam (Cheryle) Stover of Leominster, MA, Ryan (Brittany) Scriven of Athol MA. He leaves his mother, Doris Ciccolini of Leominster MA, and brother Greg (Susan) Ciccolini of Scottsdale AZ. He also leaves his beloved grandchildren Everly, Mia, Jacob, Madilynn, Parker, and Hudson, as well as beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. In addition to family, he leaves many dear friends that he has made along the way.

After growing up in Leominster MA, John attended Lowell Tech (University), graduating in 1976 after pursuing studies in Business Administration. In 1980, John married his first wife Patty and they raised both girls in Leominster surrounded by friends and family. John’s professional career was in transportation logistics. He received many awards and accolades throughout his career by his supervisors and colleagues for his expertise in international tariff laws and his ability to resolve complex logistical issues.

Throughout his life, John enjoyed both playing and watching all types of sports. He was a loyal Giants fan just like his dad, and would often take a trip down to Jersey to watch them play. He was a frequent volunteer at various PGA pro tournaments, as well as a weekend golfer. He was also a lifetime Knights of Columbus member, joining just after high school and regularly going down to the “club” to watch football on Sundays with fellow members.

John was passionate about helping others and giving back to his community. John was a devout Catholic, having been an altar boy for many years at St. Anna Parish in Leominster. He also volunteered on the Leominster Recreation Commission for over 20 years, where he helped oversee the development of many parks, playgrounds and recreation areas throughout Leominster. 

In 2012 John married his current wife Carol and they enjoyed many fun days walking along the various recreation trails all across New England, taking road trips to their favorite breakfast spots, and sneaking away to various historical Bed and Breakfasts on the weekends. Carol’s family quickly became part of his own, and John enjoyed family get-togethers with his extended family.

In his spare time, John’s hobby was woodworking. Every Christmas he would build gifts for the family such as planters, birdhouses, serving boards etc. He loved rocking out to Grand Funk Railroad in his workshop and tackling a new woodworking project on nights and weekends. One of his final projects was creating beautiful angels to welcome the Christmas season (his favorite) to parishioners on the lawn at Holy Family Church. 

A devoted son, brother, father, grandfather, husband and friend, John was the center of his family and someone they knew they could always count on. Whether it was to lend an ear, have a good laugh, or help with something that needed fixing, John had a special way of making everyone feel welcome. His generosity, infectious humor and enthusiasm for life will be passed down through the many lives that he touched during his time with us.
