Harold Michael Maffei

June 7, 1929 - November 2, 2018

Harold Michael Maffei, a San Francisco native, died on Nov. 2, 2018. He was the youngest child of Michael and Erminia, whose family immigrated from Italy. The Maffei's were among the first Italian-immigrant families to settle in North Beach, proud makers of their own wine and stuffed ravioli. Harold met his wife, Jane Xepoleas, at Crocker-Amazon park when both were teenagers and they lived in San Francisco for their 40-plus years together. A construction worker by trade, he spent his years building some of San Francisco's landmark institutions including the Moscone Center and the city's airport. Harold loved wood carving, maintaining his own fruit and vegetable garden and the San Francisco fog. Some of his favorite past-times in the city included catching trout at Lake Merced, hunting for ducks and deer and going for walks at Golden Gate park.
Harold is survived by his two children, Richard and Theresa Elsibai (Nabil), 5 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
He is pre-deceased by his wife Jane as well as his brother Edward and sisters Evelyn, Florence and Lorraine.
Friends and family may visit at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13 at Duggan's Serra Mortuary, 500 Westlake Avenue, Daly City. A Rosary will be held at 7 p.m.
The Funeral Service will be Wednesday, November 14 at 11 a.m., also at Duggan's Serra Mortuary. Committal to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, 1500 Mission Road, Colma.
