Joseph Angelo Barone, 77, peacefully departed this earthly life at his Laurel, Delaware home. He was the son of the late Joseph Patsy Barone Jr. and Emma Fringone.
He was a retired custodian with the New Jersey public school system, after 20 years of service. Joseph also operated a real estate cleanout business in Bergen County New Jersey. Later in life, he owned a consignment shop for 15 years on Market Street in Sussex County.
He was well known within his community and enjoyed spending time with his friends. His hobbies included tinkering with cars and finding a variety of collectibles for his consignment shop.
Joseph considered his 15-year-old sheltie, Major, his soulmate and was committed to taking care of him.
He is survived by his four children: Joseph, Paula, Brian, and Lawrence Barone; seven grandchildren; other extended relatives and friends. And he wouldn’t want to forget his beloved dog, Major.
There will not be a funeral service. Interment will be at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, in Blades Cemetery in Blades, DE.
