John O. Calicchio, 68, longtime resident of Stamford, peacefully passed at his home in Stamford on Friday, June 20, 2014. He was born July 5, 1945 in Kensington, CT to the late Andrew and Flora (Misteri) Calicchio. John grew up in Kensington with his brother and sisters and attended St. Paul's Catholic School in Berlin.

In 1961 he moved to Stamford and graduated from Stamford High School with the class of 1964. After high school John followed his life's passion and opened his own high-performance engine shop called Max Output. He was a highly regarded mechanic said to have "hands of gold" and he became well known in the tri-state area for his ability to transform regular automotive engines into high-performance machines. John knew everyone, or shall we say everyone knew John, and he was nicknamed "The Mayor". He had a beautiful way with people and was a true gentleman and a wonderful friend. He will be sorely missed. John is survived by his children; John A. Calicchio, and his wife Angela, of Stamford and Sarah C. Calicchio, also of Stamford, his granddaughter, Samantha Calicchio, his sister, Agnes M.
