In Remembrance

Cantor Fitzgerald | Securities Trader

Joe’s life was blessing to all who knew him as family, as friends and as my husband. Joe was born and raised in West Islip by his parents, Jean and Joe and was the adored brother, the “king” of his three sisters, Sharon, Kathy, and Jeanmarie. He graduated with honors from West Islip High School where he excelled in football, basketball, and baseball. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business from Providence College in 1995.
Our life began with a simple kiss in the spring of 1996 and he forever changed my life. We were married on July 1, 2000.

Joe began working at Cantor Fitzgerald in 1997 as a securities trader. He was always laughing with his coworkers. He considered himself fortunate to work with such great people.

Joe was very proud of the house we just bought in February of 2001. He tok pride in mowing the lawn, doing yard work and barbecuing. Joe also enjoyed working out, going to the vineyards and to the beach, and watching sports.

There are not enough words to express the amazing man that Joe was. He was always interested in whatever conversation he was engaged in, always making jokes, even at his own expense just to make others laugh. Most importantly, Joe lived a life full of love with no regrets. He made each day count, which is an important lesson many of us learned from him. They took the best of us when they took Joe. He was laughter and love, integrity and goodness, patience and peace, loyalty and honesty. Joe will be forever missed and loved by so many because he gave us a lifetime of love and happiness in each and every day he was with us.

Joe, you are my husband, my best friend, my soul mate. You brought me a perfect love that shined through every time I looked into your eyes. We just fit, perfectly. I will always carry all of the love we shared in me. I miss you terribly and I love you with all my heart.

Hugs and smooches,
