Joe was born into an immigrant family and lost his father at a young age. With the odds against him, he persevered to go on to serve his country in the Marines and then rose in the construction industry to become a skilled pipe foreman, along with raising his own family.
Joe was very proud of his Italian heritage and made several trips to Sicily, back to his parents home town to visit friends and family.
Joe also helped secure work in the construction industry for many Italian immigrants, and they were all very grateful to him for that.
He enjoyed his final years in Naples, Florida. He was a good man who will be missed.
A celebration of Joe’s life will be held, Thursday December 13, 2018 at 7 PM at the Leon Pucedo Funeral Home, Inc. 1905 Watson Blvd. Endicott, NY. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Thursday from 4 to 7 PM.
