John P.'s Story
John Philip Yahoodik, 69, passed way suddenly on June 27, 2017.
He was born in Malden, Mass., to the late Margaret (Feely) and John Yahoodik of Everett. A 1965 graduate of Everett High School, John followed in his father's footsteps receiving his football letter playing on Everett's multi-year class A state championship teams.
He maintained contacts with former teammates and was a member of the"E" Club. He followed Everett High's football team through every game of every season. After attending Northeastern University and Salem State College, he married his wife, Judith (Filipiak) of Swampscott. They celebrated 46 years of marriage in January of 2017.
John worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston for over 40 years. He loved the bank and was proud of his contributions and accomplishments as a senior project engineer in the property management group. He was known to the Federal Reserve community as a mentor and father figure, always willing to listen and supply advice and support to all who sought him out.
He made friends easily from members of the house keeping staff, security staff, and interns as well as senior management. He had a smile for everyone. The center of his life however, were his three children. He was immensely proud of each of them and their accomplishments.
In addition to his beloved wife, he is survived by his daughter, Ellen and her fiance, J.P. Story of Swampscott; his daughter, Jen and her husband, Joe Christensen of Marblehead; and his son, Philip of Alexandria, Va. He also leaves a sister, Maryann Cirino and her husband, Robert of Hanover; a brother, Paul Yahoodik and his wife, Diane of Lynnfield; and a number of nieces and nephews.
A Memorial Service will be held in the Eustis and Cornell Funeral Home, 142 Elm Street, Marblehead on Thursday, July 6 at 11 a.m. Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, July 5 from 4 to 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in John’s name to the American Kidney Association or American Heart Association.
