Joseph A. Leone
Joseph Allen Leone, 39, of Northfield, NJ, was unexpectedly taken on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Joseph was born on Nov. 24, 1978 in Philadelphia, PA, loving son of Elizabeth O’Brien (Todd Veautour).
Joseph is survived by his brother, John Leone (Tanya) of Lehigh Acres, FL, and his nephews, Michael and Kyle Leone of Cape Coral, FL.
Joseph was a loving and nurturing father to his two children, Joseph Jr. and Isabella Leone. Joseph moved to Cape Coral, FL with his mother and brother where he developed his life long friendships, his love for fishing and the beach. If Joe was ever missing, you would find him at Blinds Pass on Captiva with his fishing pole. On Sundays, you would find Joe wearing his Eagles jersey watching the Eagles game. Or during baseball season, he would watch the Philadelphia Phillies while wearing his Phillies jersey and his Phillies hat. Joe’s proudest legacy was his family. He loved his family, his children were his prize possession. Everything he worked hard for, was for his children. He wanted to make sure his mother, children and nephews would be proud of him. Joe had a contagious laugh, he could brighten any room he walked into. He always wanted to joke and have a good time no matter whom he was with. If anyone ever needed anything, Joe would be there to help them, whether it was fixing something around their house, or just being there as a friend. Joseph will be greatly missed by Estelle & Joseph Lord, Rachael Demoulin, and all his closest family and friends. In lieu of flowers or donations, the family asks that you take a moment to hug your child, grandchild, niece/nephew, friend or walk on the beach for a moment, an hour or a day.
A Memorial Service will be on Saturday, Nov. 24th (Joseph’s 40th birthday) at Blinds Pass on Captiva Islands with a time to be announced at a later date. All that knew Joseph, are welcome to attend. The family asks that you dress in beach attire, in your Philadelphia Eagles or football jerseys. Bring a fishing pole and stay a while, this is what Joseph would want of his friends and family on this day.
Goodbyes are not forever, Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean, I will miss you, until we meet again. We will see you again Joseph Allen Leone. In our hearts forever.
