GHILONI, Christopher “Chris” died of heart failure at Tufts Medical Center on March 18, 2021. He was born and raised in Marlboro, son of Louis F. and Barbara (LaForme) Ghiloni. He started at Quincy District Court in 1976 and finished his career as an Assistant Clerk Magistrate. During his tenure he had the privilege of helping many people with their struggles.

A long-time member of the Son’s of Italy in Braintree, his past times included skiing at Loon Mountain and Sunday River and being in the company of his beloved cronies. He enjoyed making specialty Italian cuisines for his family and friends and was an avid and competitive vegetable gardener.

He is survived by his wife, Suzanne (Ziegler), sons Matthew and James, both of Braintree, sister, Ellen (James) Brien of Marlboro, brothers Marty (Linda) of Hudson, and John (Denise) of Marlboro.

During their 41 years of marriage, he and Sue made so many wonderful friends, many over more than half a century, some more recent. His family is grateful and appreciative of these friendships and all the love and support received during his last difficult weeks.
