Joseph had a passion and love for playing BINGO. He was a very meticulous man and had a crazy and dry sense of humor, often he was the only one who you would find laughing at his own jokes.

He is also survived by special friends Sam and Nancy Trapanick. He was predeceased by three sisters, Rebecca Stevens, Angela Pendolf, and Marian Mashtare.
In keeping with Joseph’s wishes, graveside services will be private at the convenience of the family in Armory Hill Cemetery, Ilion, NY.
The family would like to offer a special thank you to Aunt Susie for her care and kindness and also the staff at the Abraham House for the care and comfort shown towards Joseph.
