Joseph P. "Joe" Sexton Obituary
HORNELL/JAMESTOWN - Joseph P. "Joe" Sexton, 51, of Jamestown, formerly of Hornell, died unexpectedly on Friday (Sept. 27, 2013) in Jamestown.

Born in Hornell on May 5, 1962, he was the son of Thomas and Kathleen (Conkey) Sexton.

Joe grew up in Hornell and was a graduate of Hornell High School (class of 1980). While in high school, Joe excelled in sports, playing baseball and basketball for the Hornell Red Raiders. He actually pitched a perfect game (no player reaching first base) while playing in the Hornell Babe Ruth League.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, serving his country from 1982-84, primarily being stationed in Germany.

Following his discharge from the Air Force, Joe returned to Hornell, where he resided for several years, and has lived in Jamestown for the past 15 years. Joe had been a member of Our Lady of the Valley Parish and a communicant of St. Ignatius Loyola Church.

While living in Jamestown, he was employed as a drill press operator for a local company for about three years, retiring after suffering a devastating industrial accident.

Joe was a sports enthusiast and love watching sporting events on television, especially baseball, basketball and football.

He was preceded in death by his father, Thomas Sexton, who died in 1995.

Joe was married to the former Patricia "Trish" Buono, who survives. Also surviving are his daughter, Danielle (Chris) Brewer of Hornell; his son, Joseph (Valerie) Sexton of Hornell; his mother, Kathleen Sexton of Hornell; his sister, Joan (Jim) Lecceardone of Hornell; his brother, James (Teresa) Sexton of Hornell; three grandsons, Logan Sexton, Damien Sexton and Christian Brewer; and several nieces and nephews.

The family of Joseph P. "Joe" Sexton will receive friends on Thursday from 4–6 p.m. at the Dagon Funeral Home, 38 Church St., Hornell, where a memorial service will be held at the conclusion of calling hours at 6 p.m., with Deacon Robert McCormick officiating.
