AMICO, Joseph E.
Joseph Edward Amico, 62, of Avon, beloved husband of Alice (Bove) Amico passed away Saturday, (September 7, 2013). He was born in Brooklyn, NY on April 21, 1951 to the late Erasmus Amico and Antonietta Amico. He lived there for many years and attended Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. He moved to Avon with his family in 1981. He was a successful mechanical engineer. He loved sports cars, music, audio equipment, and cooking delicious meals. But above all, his true passion was his family. Joe was a loving and devoted husband, wonderful father to two daughters, and the most amazing grandfather to his two grandchildren. He was also a dear mentor to so many. He lived life to the fullest with an outgoing personality that made everyone who knew him love him. He is survived by his adoring wife, Alice; his proud daughters, Loren (Amico) Clarke and Kimberly (Amico) Wolf; his brother, Marino Amico; his sisters, Vita Padalino, Julia Spampinato, and Lydia Landisi; his grandchildren, Ben and Kate Wolf; his sons in law, Matthew Clarke and Troy Wolf, and his many nephews, nieces, cousins, and brothers-in-law. He will be missed dearly by those who loved him. He left a permanent mark on all of our hearts and our lives will never be the same without him. Rest in peace, "Papa".
