Joseph A. DeAngelis, 76, passed away with loved ones by his side, Sunday, September 8, 2019, at St. Elizabeth Medical Center.

Joe was born in Utica, on August 3, 1943, a son of the late Paul J. DeAngelis and Adeline Pecoraro. He was educated in Utica schools; worked in the maintenance department of the NYS Department of Transportation, from which he retired in 1984. He was a member of the Christ Community Church on Herkimer Road and also the Shriner and Mason’s Oriental-Faxton Lodge. Joe was a staple at all the car shows, where he would meet, greet and joke with all his friends, especially at Dave’s Diner. He loved his cars, and was especially proud of his 2015 Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker.
