Nicolos DiMaggio, 85, of Burgettstown, Pa, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away on Monday, October 2, 2023, at the Weirton Medical Center.

He was born on November 8, 1937, in Saint Louis, Missouri, and spent his formative years in the town of Crystal City, Missouri.

Nick’s journey through life was marked by love, dedication, and a profound commitment to his family, friends, and profession. He embarked on his academic journey at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where after spending a few years studying business he switched his major to pharmacy. He was a proud member of Alpha Phi Delta fraternity during his time on campus. It was at Duquesne that he met the love of his life, Marlayna Farulli. On January 23, 1960, they sealed their love in matrimony, embarking on a journey that would span over six decades.

Together, Nick and Marlayna were blessed with a beautiful family that included two sons, Andrew, and Nicolos, and three daughters, Anne, Marialana, and Luci-Jo. Their family tree grew even more abundant with the addition of seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Professionally, Nick and Marlayna both thrived as pharmacists, owning and operating DiMaggio’s Pharmacy in Oakdale, Pennsylvania. Nick’s career in pharmacy also included positions at Dynamic Pharmacy, Penn Way Pharmacy, John J. Kane Pharmacy, New Cumberland Pharmacy, and Ted’s Plaza Pharmacy.

In addition to his professional life, Nick was a member of Saint Joseph the Worker Church and a member of the Knights of Columbus 3734.

Nick’s passions extended beyond his work and community involvement. He loved to hunt when his health permitted. He was also known for his winemaking skills, creating memories and toasts with every bottle. Nick was a gracious host, finding joy in entertaining and sharing camaraderie with his friends, often enjoying a good cigar and a laugh.

Nick DiMaggio was the third child of four born to Andrew and Anne Vaccaro DiMaggio. He is preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Mary Riolo and Theresa Gleeson.

He is survived by his wife, Marlayna DiMaggio, his sons, Andrew, and Nicolos (Karin) DiMaggio, and his daughters, Anne (Bob Marshall) DiMaggio, Marialana (Mindy Buckalew) DiMaggio, and Luci-Jo (Jason Palm) DiMaggio. Nick’s legacy lives on in his grandchildren, Beth Anne (Jared) Roberts, Nicolas Raymond DiMaggio, Nicolos Robert DiMaggio, Marlayna DiMaggio, Jack DiMaggio, Noah Palm and Anna Palm, as well as his great-grandchildren, Lilliana, Ariella, and Marco Roberts.

Visitation will be on Saturday from 6-8 PM and on Sunday 1-3 and 6-8 PM at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, 3219 Main Street Weirton, WV.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10 AM Monday at Saint Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church, Weirton.
