YORKTOWN - Joseph J. Imburgia Jr., of Yorktown, 67 years of age, died suddenly at home Feb. 29, 2012.|
He was born in Wareham, Mass., in 1944. He was the eldest son of Betty Jean Thomas Imburgia King and the late Joseph J. Imburgia Sr.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Susan R. Imburgia of Yorktown; his sons, Joseph J. Imburgia of Yorktown, and David S. Imburgia and his wife, Ange McCormack Imburgia of Grafton; his daughters, Lesley Jeanette Mink and her husband, J.R. Mink Jr. and their two sons, Jacob A. Mink and Caleb J. Mink of Lynchburg, and Mary Christina Miller and her husband, Charles V. Miller IV and their children, Charles V. Miller V, and Kaitlyn Marie Miller of Gloucester; his mother, Betty Jean Thomas Imburgia King of Virginia Beach; his brothers, Samuel Imburgia of Denver, Kenneth K. King, Jr. and his wife, Frances King of Chattanooga; his sister, Jamie Kellam and her husband, Robert Kellam of Virginia Beach; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was proud to serve in the USAF during the Vietnam War, where he served three tours in Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines with the 1st Mobile Communications Group and "Rivet Top." As an entrepreneur, he was the owner and operator of Process Control Services, Ltd., in Seaford, Va., for 30 years. Most recently, he was a senior designer at Whitman Requardt and Associates. He was an active volunteer his entire life, contributing to the community through coaching the Seaford Bulldogs, York County Volunteer Rescue Squad, REACT, MARS, CERT and former VP of the Middle Peninsula Amateur Radio Club (KI4LXT). He was an assistant section emergency coordinator with ARES, volunteer examiner with W5YI as a volunteer examiner coordinator, a member of Hampton Roads Emergency Management Committee, volunteer spotter for the National Weather Service Skywarn system, and a fixture of the Marlbank Cove Home Owners Association for over 12 years. He was a teacher, mentor and friend to many. After decades of continual volunteer service, Joe's likely only regret would be that he didn't have more time to contribute. Joe knew no strangers in his life here. He was quick witted and always ready with a corny joke that never fell flat. His smile and presence will surely be missed by more people than can ever be expressed.
Visitation will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 4, 2012, at Amory Funeral Home, in Grafton, Va. The funeral will follow at 3:30 p.m., with a reception immediately afterward at the Marlbank Cove Clubhouse. A graveside service will be held at noon Monday, March 5, 2012, in Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, Suffolk, Va.
