Joseph M. Mazzulo, Jr., 66, of Westborough and formerly of Brecksville, OH, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at the UMass/Memorial Healthcare-University Hospital in Worcester. He was the beloved husband to Janet M. (McClain) Mazzulo.
Born in Cleveland, OH, he was the son of the late Joseph M. Sr. and Sylvia (Favino) Mazzulo and stepmother Serafina (Lombardo) Mazzulo.

His career encompassed First National Supermarkets, Staples (Vice President of Business Processes) and Granite Construction (Sr. Vice President of Business Processes).
Joe was a devoted father and avid car enthusiast. He co-owned “Need for Speed” for 8 years, a model car raceway which became a wonderful father and son activity for their slot-car obsession.
