John J Capomaccio, 89, of Andover, died Sunday at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston following a brief illness.  He was the devoted husband of Angie (Ferraro) Capomaccio with whom he shared over 63 years of marriage.

Born in Somerville, he was the son of the late John and Florence (Vaudo) Capomaccio of Gaeta, Italy.  He was raised and educated in Somerville and has spent the last 47 years living in Andover.

John was a graduate of Salem State College, class of 1957 and continued his education at Boston University and received his master’s degree in 1959.  John was in the Saugus School system for over 38 years.

John served as a Trappist Monk for five years and later enrolled in the seminary school and became a Deacon and was a loyal and dedicated deacon at St. Augustine’s Church in Andover and served in many capacities for over 40 years.  He also enjoyed playing his daily game of scrabble with his wife and was an avid fan of all of Boston’s professional sports teams, especially the New England Patriots.
