January 23rd, 2015

John J. Ausiello, age 67, of St. Petersburg, Florida, formerly of Malden, MA, died peacefully on January 15, 2015.

John was born December 20, 1947 in Chelsea, MA; he was the beloved son of the late Alfred and Eleanor (Higgins) Ausiello. He was raised and educated in Chelsea and was a graduate of St. Rose Elementary School and Chelsea High School.

Following graduation, John was inducted into the U. S. Army on July 25, 1967, during the Vietnam War. John received several commendations for his fine service including the National Defense Medal, as well as the Marksman M-16 and the Sharpshooter M-14. He was honorably discharged on July 8, 1969 and returned home to his family.

John moved to Malden where he lived for many years before retiring to Florida more than 10 years ago.

Prior to retiring, John was a mail carrier for the U. S. Post Office in the City of Boston for many years. John was a hard worker; he weathered countless storms and extreme temperatures throughout the years but he always managed to get his job done.

In his spare time, John enjoyed playing cards; especially whist on many Saturday nights with his family and friends. John was also an avid golfer who achieved a “hole in one” at the Middleton Golf Course.

John will be remembered as a quiet guy who loved his family and friends unconditionally. John will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.

John was the beloved son of the late Alfred and Eleanor (Higgins) Ausiello, dear brother of Alfred Ausiello and his wife Lucille of Tewksbury, formerly of Wilmington, Eleanor Buckley and her husband James of Wilmington, and the late William “Billy” Ausiello, loving uncle of Laura and John Piscatelli and their children Jaclyn & Jessica, Andrea and Stephen Manning and their children Brian & Sean, Alfred and Maria Ausiello and their children Christopher & Nicholas, Jennifer Ausiello and her fiancé Josh Rosenthal, Patrice and Michael Elia and their children Matthew & Nicole, Deborah and Mark Rasmussen and their children Erik & Kirsten. John is also survived by his companion Elaine Sun of Revere and her son Jason Sun of Malden as well as many dear friends.

Family and friends will gather in St. Thomas of Villanova Church, 126 Middlesex Ave., Wilmington, on Tuesday, February 3rd for Visitation from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. immediately followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 a.m. Interment with Military Honors will follow at the Lakeside Cemetery in Wakefield. In lieu of flowers donations in John’s memory may be made to the Jimmy Fund, P.O. Box 849168, Boston, MA 02284-9168.

    Anyone can be a father; it takes a lot of effort to be a dad. Johnny was my dad and a real natural at it. John had enormous strength, love and commitment in treating me as his own son. Family was always 1st; Sunday breakfasts with Uncle Tom, frequent dinners with Uncle Al, Lucile and Jennifer, Christmas’ always at Aunt Ellie and Joe’s, always a place at the table for Uncle Billy to have his coffee. He spoke so highly of everyone’s accomplishments, taking great pride in being part of the Ausiello family. As I get older and see how the world can be so cynical, never once did John utter a negative smear against anyone; as I reflect back that really embodied his character as a guardian. He was so charismatic, loving, caring, dedicated, generous, wise, inspiring and provided me the blueprint for my life. It was an easy decision to make John the best man at my wedding, he was my hero. His legacy will live on in all that knew him and in my beautiful children Mikaela, Samantha and Elijah. They too will learn where sympathy can be found. I only hope that I can give them half of the greatness that Johnny gave me.

    Lord,
    I thanked you every day for bringing John into my life. I ask you take good care of him for he will be a great angel in your army.
