John Argibay Jan 12, 1952 - Apr 17, 2019
The Philadelphia Eagles’ fan base got a little quieter on April 17, 2019 with the passing of one of their most passionate fans, John Argibay. John was born on January 12, 1952 to Juan and Aurora (Picado) Argibay and spent the majority of his life residing in Delaware County.
After graduating from Springfield High School, he went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1975 from Temple University, or as he lovingly referred to it, “Harvard on the Delaware”... He worked as a mechanic, enjoyed a successful career with IBM and ultimately retired from Computer Sciences Corporation.
John was devoted to his family and took great pride in his Spanish roots. Making Paella with his sister, Terry, was one of his favorite ways to celebrate his Spanish heritage. John also loved "Da Birds" and when they finally won Super Bowl LII, he was so excited you would have thought he ran the “Philly Special” himself! He had a passion for motorcycles and golf and loved telling stories from the "good old days".
John, is survived by his wife of 22 years, Linda Mahoney, sons John and Michael, stepdaughters Lauren (Schlichter) Melkonian (Matt) and Christine (Schlichter) Philbin (Patrick), three grandchildren, Wesley, Oliver and Henry and his sister, Theresa Argibay.
Visitation will be held on Monday, April 22, 2019 from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm followed by a Celebration of John's life at 12:00 pm at the Nolan-Fidale Funeral Home, 5980 Chichester Avenue, Aston, PA.

We wanted to share our condolences with John’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3, 4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.
