Son of Carmine and Lucille Maffeo, and brother of Marie, he was born in Denver on August 18, 1925 and attended Smedley Elementary, Horace Mann Junior High, North High, and Denver University (BA 1949, and MA 1952). He served in World War II in the infantry (Pacific Theater) rising to Technical Sergeant.
