He joined the daytime drama in 1982 and was featured intermittently until his last appearance this year.

"Joseph was a big 'ol bear with a puppy dog heart. I'm so blessed to have had these many years with him. I will miss him every day," said his wife, Patricia Schultz-Mascolo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mascolo had many roles in a decades-long acting career but was best known as DiMera, a villain also known as "The Phoenix" for many dramatic comebacks from supposed demise. He won three Soap Opera Digest awards for outstanding villain.
