James Maczko

Obituary of James John Klauke Maczko

One Fiaczko in our Maczko Fiaczko family has left us.

It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden, unexpected, and tragic passing of our beloved son JAMES JOHN KLAUKE MACZKO, at the age of 37 years on Wednesday, April 17th, 2024.

James was loved by so many people and was affectionately known as; son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew, husband, partner, friend and most importantly of all, Daddy to his most cherished daughter, Olive. All those who will remember him will recall a creative, passionate, intelligent, kind, energetic and funny person who was always up for an adventure into the wild. James was most proud of his accomplishments as a burgeoning actor and a musician in his youth with his bandmates from Heathen Ruckus. For our son James however, there was another darker side to his amazing qualities which created a constant source of anguish, unhappiness, self doubt, and emotional pain. As the years have passed, these negative emotional challenges had become increasingly more difficult for James and his loved ones to manage and in the end, they won out.

James leaves behind his beautiful daughter, Olive Rose Maczko as well as his parents, Jamie and Kathy Maczko, his brother David (Erica) Maczko, his sister, Sarah (Chris) Wilson, Olive’s mom – Desiree Lajeunesse and his cherished partner Carina DiPietro. James was deeply loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, grandparents and friends.
