SACO -- Born on Jan. 20, 1927, in Aragona (Sicily), Italy, Stephen Giglia passed on Nov. 20, 2012, at Seal Rock Healthcare in Saco.
Stephen immigrated to the United States in 1953 and became an American Citizen.
He worked as a short order cook at the famous Blue Bell Diner in Newtonville, Mass., and at the same time learned his other trade as a Barber.
In 1971 he and his wife Pamela opened a clothing store in Boston, called Settebello. They retailed mid to high fashion clothing. By 1985 Settebello grew to four stores in the Boston area. Stephen was a life long member of the Lions Club, an opera aficionado, and in 2011 Knighted as Prince of Aragona for his benevolent work with his hometown of Aragona.
Stephen is survived by his wife Pamela of Saco; his son Salvatore of Marion, Mass., his daughter Joanna of Saco, and his daughter Roesmary of Long Island, N.Y. Stephen will be especially missed by his seven grandchildren.
Stephen lived in Waltham and later in Weston, Mass. In 2001 he and his wife Pamela moved to the Falmouth Country Club where they retired.
A private service for Stephen will be held at Laurel Hill Cemetery Chapel on Nov. 24, at 11 a.m., in Saco. Dennett, Craig & Pate, 365 Main St., Saco are in charge of the arrangements.
