Enjoyed working on cars, fishing and music

LYNNFIELD — James Harold Dalelio, 25, of Lynnfield, passed away at his home on Friday, May 17, 2024 after a short battle with brain cancer.

James was born in Winchester on Aug. 18, 1998. He was raised in Lynnfield and was a graduate of Essex Technical High School in 2017. He has been a resident of Lynnfield for the past 21 years. James would drop what he was doing for anyone in need of a friend. He always brightened people’s mood. James never left home without saying, “I love you.” He wanted to get lost in adventures. He would walk, talk and eat in his sleep.

He enjoyed working on cars, fishing, music and being on “Chronicle” for his potato on a stick; he was always the class clown around his friends, wife, daughter and family. He wanted a Subaru WRX 22B EJ225. James has been two-plus years sober from alcohol.

James’ family members include his loving wife Olivia (Bonaventura) Dalelio; his daughter Stella Rose Dalelio; his mother Michelle (Hall) Dalelio; his grandfather Harold G. Hall and his late grandmother Sheila M. Hall; his brother Alex Dalelio and sister Jacquelynne Dalelio.

Visitation will be held on Friday, May 24, 2024 from 1-2:30 p.m. followed by a 2:30 p.m. funeral service at the Croswell Funeral Home, 19 Bow St., North Reading. Memorial donations may be made in his memory to the charity of one’s choice. To sign the guestbook, visit croswellfuneralhome.com.
