A. David Mazzone
Armando David Mazzone (1928-2004) was a judge for the U.S. District Court in Boston from 1978 until 2004. He is best known for the 1985 court decision mandating the cleanup of Boston Harbor, which ultimately cost $3.8 billion and resulted in the construction of the Deer Island wastewater treatment plant.
He was very active in the judiciary as well as a number of local organizations in Wakefield. He moved to Wakefield in 1959, was married to Eleanor Stewart Mazzone and had four daughters and three sons. The family lived at 7 Shumway Circle (later the home of Joseph and Nancy Bertrand, which burned in 2006) and later moved to 3 Morrison Road. Judge Mazzone died on October 25, 2004.
