Stephen C. Catallo of Revere, formerly of Everett, passed away on August 25, 2021, at the age of 78.
Steve was a retired real estate broker, but many people may remember him most as an event DJ and videographer through his longtime business, Sound ‘A’ Round. In his teenage years, Steve was a member of the popular local doo-wop group, The Majestics, which had the chart-topping single, The Lone Stranger, in 1959.
While Steve enjoyed sharing his love of music with others through his band and DJ business, his true passion was family. At the age of 13, he met the love of his life, Lucille Catallo (Pesce) of Everett. In 1962, they married and had two daughters, Lisa (Murray) and Stephanie (Wirtanen). Steve was the epitome of a “family man,” and his daughters were his pride and joy. Later, as a grandfather, he doted on his four grandchildren, twins Robert and Stephen (Murray), and Richard and Kaitlyn (Wirtanen). Steve loved spending time with his grandchildren and took great care in capturing their most precious moments -- from playtime to holidays to milestone events -- through video recordings. The family will cherish these recordings and will look back on them with love.
In addition to his wife of 59 years, daughters, and grandchildren, Steve leaves behind a brother, Guy Catallo of Malden, and sister, Stephanie Carbone of Saugus, as well as many extended family members and friends who will greatly miss his jovial personality and caring ways. Steve is predeceased by his sister Josephine Catallo, and parents, Guy and Josephine Catallo.
Visitation hours will be on Tuesday, August 31 from 4 – 7 pm at Salvatore Rocco & Sons Funeral Home, 331 Main Street, Everett. Steve's life will be celebrated with family and friends during a prayer service on Wednesday, September 1 at 11 am at the funeral home.
Steve will always be remembered for his kindness, humility, and gentle loving spirit. He was the cornerstone of the family and a true friend to many. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
