John Molloy, 82, passed away peacefully surrounded by family late Tuesday evening, August 2nd, 2022, at his home.

A native of Boston, Massachusetts, John was born on January 28, 1940. John grew up in South Boston, Mass. He graduated from South Boston High and went to work for Insulators Local 6 Union, working as a Pipe coverer for many years. Later he worked at Deaconess Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren on Cape Cod and skiing the slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine.

He is survived by his loving companion of 32 years, Janet Masciarelli of Canton, Mass.; his 2 daughters, Karen Molloy of Westford, Mass. and Donna Nixon of Hollis, New Hampshire; stepsons Alex Masciarelli of Waynesville, North Carolina and Matt Masciarelli of Canton, Mass; grandchildren, Sean Lanciani, Corey Lanciani, Nolan Nixon, Brendan and Jonathan Nixon, Sophia Masciarelli, Fiona Masciarelli, Olivia Masciarelli, Jack Masciarelli & Sam Masciarelli, as well as many nieces and nephews.

John’s booming laugh and love of conversation will never be forgotten. John would often visit and chat with people at work, on the ski slopes, and with family members. He was a great listener and loved to ask questions to learn about others’ life experiences. His sincerity was always evident in these conversations.
