Joseph W. Biscardi

Worcester - Joseph W. Biscardi, 88, of Worcester, passed away on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, in the tender care of his daughter and the caring staff at Holy Trinity Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. His wife of fifty years, Maria (Caramiello) Biscardi, predeceased him in September 2016.
