Steven E. DiGiacomo passed away suddenly on June 11, 2022. He was 73 years old. Steven was a longtime resident of Malden and past owner of DiGiacomo Insurance Agency in Malden.
A lifelong and avid gardener, Steve’s incessant and gregarious commentaries over the best way to plant, fertilize and water the garden entertained and educated all his family and friends. Steve’s motto was, if one zucchini plant was good…10 was better. When he was not in his beautiful garden or playing with his beloved dog, Rusty, Steve was happiest on the water fishing. Deemed as the 4 Musketeers, along with Bob, Mike and Al, Steve was a constant source of laughter on board. When his fishing soirees were over, it was time to hit the kitchen; armed with a prolific amount of ingredients, Steve would order Joanne around the kitchen and ultimately there would be a feast.
Steve wrote his own rules. He lived 1,000 years in his 74 calendar years because he attacked life, grabbed it by its lapels, kissed it and swung it on the dance floor.
Steve was a rare combination of someone who had a love of life and a firm understanding of what was important – the simplicity of living life with those you love. He will be sorely missed by those he loved and who loved him.
Steven was the beloved husband of Joanne P. (Catalano) DiGiacomo. He was the son of the late Eugene and Elizabeth (Meehan) DiGiacomo. Steven was the dear brother of Alex DiGiacomo and his wife Michele of Georgia and John DiGiacomo of Georgia. He was the uncle of David DiGiacomo and Lindsay and Jodie Catalano. He is also survived by many cousins, loving friends and his beloved dog Rusty.
