Mr. Maiuro served in the First Infantry Division, his wife said. "The Big Red One. He was very proud of that.
"He was wounded pretty badly," spent a long recovery at an Army hospital in West Virginia, and was never sent back into combat, his wife said.
After the war, he began his bus-driving career with what is now NJ Transit, "but he didn't like the stops and starts," so he lasted only about a year.
Mr. Maiuro began a 40-year career as a long-distance bus driver, first with Quaker City Bus Co. of Philadelphia and then with what is now Trailways Transportation System Inc.
With Quaker City, he drove the Philadelphia-to-New-York route, his wife said. But with Trailways out of Philadelphia, he drove as far south as South Carolina and as far north as Canada.
"He loved it," she said.
He retired from Greyhound Lines Inc. in 1988.
Mr. Maiuro was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Berlin and of Trinity United Methodist Church in Tansboro.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by a son, Alan; a daughter, Robyn Maiuro; stepdaughters Janet Kirchhoff, Robin Eichler, and Mary Ellen Davis; and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
