DELMAR — Joseph S. Triglia III, 50, of Delmar went home to be with his Lord and Savior Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. He was born July 22, 1962, in Salisbury, a son of Joseph S. Triglia Jr. and Barbara J. (Kaledinskas) Triglia.
Joe graduated from Delmar High School with the Class of 1980, where he was a member of the varsity football team. He was a member of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Delmar and most recently attended The Tabernacle in Delmar. In his younger days Joe was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish. He spent eight years in Dallas working in the oil business before moving back to Delmar to open his business and was known around town as "The Window Man." He was a leukemia survivor and while he fought many illnesses for so many years, he never lost his faith or his positive attitude. He never met a stranger and always stopped to share God's word with anyone who would listen. Joe was concerned about everyone else's well-being and an advocate for the homeless and the area's food banks.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife of almost four years, Joella Hornbeck-Triglia; a brother, Stephen John Triglia of Rehoboth Beach; a sister, Tracy Bandorick and her husband, Bill, and their daughters, Sophia and Piper Rose Bandorick, of Ocean City; mother-in-law, Judith Basic, and her husband, Ed, of Seaford; three brothers-in-law, Chad Hornbeck and his wife, Amy, and their daughters, Ava and Hannah, of New Jersey, Brad Hornbeck and his wife, Angela, and their sons, Brad and Cole, of New Jersey and Brent Hornbeck and his daughter, Bobbi, of Arizona; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
A visitation for family and friends will be held Monday from 7-9 p.m. at Short Funeral Home in Delmar. A Mass of Christian burial will be held Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Delmar. Interment will follow at St. Stephen's Cemetery in Delmar. Also, a celebration of Joe's life will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. at The Tabernacle in Delmar.
