Stephen Anthony's Story
Stephen Anthony Aiello of Lyman, Maine, formerly of Essex, Mass., passed away on November 27, 2016, after a hard fought battle with brain cancer.
We were blessed with Stephen Anthony Aiello for 63 years. Stephen was a loving husband, awesome father, the ultimate grampy, expert clammer and lover of food. He was born on February 23, 1953, to the late Anthony and Jeanne (Carroll) Aiello, the oldest of six children. He attended Saint Peter’s High School and graduated from Gloucester High School in 1971. A few years later he met his beautiful bride of 41 years, Susan.
Stephen was a lifelong clammer in his hometown of Essex, Mass. He was an avid sports fan, loved to play golf, enjoyed online poker and horse racing as well as camping with his family in Maine. After retiring to Lyman, Maine he looked forward to his side job at Yankeeland Campground and hanging out with the “boys” there. He cherishes his time with his daughter and granddaughter as well as laughs with his many good friends.
