HANCOCK/MADISON – Carlo R. Maglio passed away Sunday, February 24, 2013, at Saint Anthony Hospital in Rockford, Il. He was 80 years old.

He was born May 6, 1932, in Milwaukee, the son of Josephine(Pizzino) and Sylvester (Sal) Maglio.

He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. He married the love of his life, Margaret (Peg) Florin (Benoy), October 18, 1986. Together Carlo and Peg were blessed with ten wonderful children.

He retired from CUNA Mutual Insurance Company (I/S Department) in 1991. Before CUNA Mutual he was a hair dresser and owned several beauty salons. He served our country in the U.S. Army. Carlo loved people and people loved Carlo, he became a friend to everyone he met. Carlo was an avid Badger and Packer fan, who rarely missed a game. He was a great athlete at both Edgewood High School and UW Madison, excelling in basketball, football and track, still holding records. Retirement years allowed Carlo to enjoy his lake home and create many family memories. He enjoyed spending time with his family, playing cards, Italian cooking, golf, softball, coaching and trips to the casino. He looked forward to his kids’ and later grandkids’ sporting events. Carlo gave his time to charitable functions and played Santa. One of his lifelong dreams was to travel to Sicily. He made the trip for his 80th birthday in the fall of 2012. His wife and children were all able to join him in Sicily. A trip of a lifetime.
