Days Cast & Crew Bids a Final Farewell to Joseph Mascolo
Last Thursday, the famous actor, Joe Mascolo, who played a ruthless villain on Days of Our Lives, the longest running Day Time Soap ever, passed away almost one week ago – last Thursday, December 8th from a long battle with Alzheimers. “Stefano Dimera” was a class act and knew exactly how to protect his family no matter what he had to do.
The entire cast and crew from “Days of Our Lives” have all considered each other as family and yesterday, Tuesday, December 13th, everyone who worked with Joe on the set of “Days” for the last 30 plus years gathered together, along with family members of the beloved Joseph Mascolo, who portrayed (Stefano Dimera) up until his retirement in January of this year.
The cast, crew and Joe’s family bid a very sad and final good-bye to the actor who spent so many years as playing the very popular and sometimes evil villain that made the fans skin crawl during many episodes spanning 30 years. Joe was a legend and an icon and was loved by many. And the actor, Thaao Penghlis, aka “Andre Dimera” who worked very closely with Joe – put together a montage of photos in a video which he played for and shared with those who attended the service – and of course, Thaao posted this on his Twitter site:
“A Tribute to Joseph Peter Mascolo…Not easy to see those who influenced you make their transition.”
Joe Mascolo was a very handsome and gifted man who gave the fans so much joy, laughter and suspense during his years on “Days of Our Lives” Rest in Peace Joe.
