Joe was born in October 1963, and was 1 of 5 children to bless the Benvenuti family. They immigrated to the US when he was just 3 years old. After his schooling, he proudly joined the US Army. But his biggest accomplishment was being a proud Dad to his children. The sun rose and set on his kids, and he has bragged of them since their birth. He was so very proud of them. He was the most dedicated and loving father, and his children Georganne and Joey loved him very, very deeply. They are so incredibly honored to be his children.
His kids feel immense pride for the man their father was. He was the most kind, compassionate, attentive, involved, courageous, funny, loving man – and they are so very blessed and thankful to have called him dad.
Everybody loved Joe. He made friends everywhere he went, and was a man of self-sacrifice, service, faith, and regularly gave back to his church with volunteer work and donations.
Those who knew him knew his humor was perhaps one of his very best qualities. He was constantly laughing, making others laugh, and his corny jokes were one of his traits his family and friends cherished. His laugh and smile were contagious.
Joe enjoyed history and immersed himself in it. He could often be found day tripping to Washington’s stops and following trails from years ago. He loved the military, especially the Air Force. He had a deep respect and appreciation for the service and this country. He had the same courage as a soldier in battle, and faced life head on.
Joe was stylish, cool, and undeniably handsome. He was always sporting in style fashion, learning salsa and swing dance. He was a music buff and made sure his kids appreciated the best- Hendrix and Zeppelin to name a few. He was privileged to have had some incredible life experiences, including travel to see the world. He received and gave true joy. But it was his smile and kindness that left a mark on those who knew him. He showed every single person love and respect, and to know him was truly an honor.
He was blessed to have endless love from his family and friends through the years. And he was always grateful for this. He was immensely close to his family, and they were privileged to spend an incredible amount of time with each other. They were lucky to experience a deep and intimate relationship with one another, truly enjoying life and leaning on one another.
Although we are broken hearted we take comfort in knowing he is at peace and watching over his family with love and pride. He leaves beautiful memories to his children Georganne and Joe; his sisters Telma, Maria, Patricia; and many more dear family members and friends.
