Obituary of Joseph M. Colangelo

Joseph Colangelo was a caring man who would do anything for the people he cared about in his life. He had a sparkling, goofy sense of humor and loved making others laugh. Joseph was an excellent father and husband and always put his family above everything else. He met his wife Lisa on a blind date set up by his sister-in-law; he had Lisa laughing all night long. Joseph was a very supportive father and was always there for his daughter's specialists' appointments cross-country, and even was featured in Independent Health commercials with her. On occasion, he would let the children paint his nails and do his hair. Joseph was a loving son and brother; even though his brother lived far away in Florida, they were close at heart. In his leisure time, Joseph enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping; he adored being outdoors. When he went on vacations, he liked using AirBnB's and exploring new places to stay, like lake houses in the Adirondacks. As a young boy, Joseph liked to take things apart to see how they worked, only to put them back together again; this later would translate into handyman skills as an adult. Joseph was talented in so many areas, such as carpentry, electrics, plumbing, and mechanics. He worked as a manager at Home Depot, where he led a team that adored him and was devastated by his loss. Joseph will be remembered for his great sense of humor and overall ability to consistently make loved ones feel cared for and memorable; he will truly be missed. Colangelo, Joseph M.
