Joseph P. Porada Obituary
SCARBOROUGH, Maine - Joseph P. Porada, 84, of Scarborough, Maine, passed away at home on June 13, 2012. Joseph was born in Luzerne, Pennsylvania, on Feb. 10, 1928, to Anna and Paul Porada.
As a young man he moved with family to Torrington, attended Torrington schools, and was a communicant of St. Mary`s Parish. He was a proud Veteran, serving in both WW II and the Korean War. After the Army he was employed as a machinist with the Torrington Co., Torin, and later Sterling Engineering.
This man shaped the Porada family as a dedicated husband and father. In his later years he was a loving caregiver to his wife Jeannette. His kindness will not be forgotten. His legacy will go on through his son and his grandchildren. Rest in Peace, Grandpa Joe.
Joseph is survived by his wife of 52 years, Jeannette Porada; son Paul Porada and grandsons Thomas and Andrew of Scarborough, Maine; and his two sisters Ann Roy and her husband Edward of Greensboro, North Carolina, and Romaine Gozemba and her husband Vincent of Torrington. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 25, at St. Mary's Church, Torrington. Burial will follow in St. Francis New Cemetery with full military honors. Arrangements have been entrusted to Cook Funeral Home, 82 Litchfield St. Torrington, CT.
