Joseph S. Rebo Obituary
Joseph "Joe" Stanley Rebo, 88, of Greensboro, N.C., passed away peacefully Wednesday, July 4, 2018, at Moses Cone Hospital after a short illness. He was born July 14, 1929, in Greensburg, where he spent his youth. Working as a sales representative for Jeannette Glass Co., he moved to Greensboro, N.C., in 1955. As he continued to expand and represent other manufacturers, he founded his own business, Joe Rebo and Associates Inc., in 1967 which covered a large area of the Southeast. Joe was preceded in death by his parents, Anna Rebo Schade and Stanley J. Rebo; his sister, Sara R. Dario; and his devoted wife of 45 years, Gladys Plaitano Rebo. Joe and Gladys lovingly raised two children and she actively worked alongside him developing his business. He is survived by his current wife, Rosann T. Rebo, of Greensboro. Joe felt very fortunate to have found love and support a second time; their union lasted nearly 15 years. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his brother, Tony Rebo, of Hempfield; daughter, Terri R. Macdonald and husband, Keith; and son, Joseph S. Rebo and wife, Judy. Judy was his adopted daughter and lovingly referred to him as "Big Daddy," a name in which he reveled. He had three grandsons, Andrew, Daniel (Melissa), and Bradley Macdonald; and most recently, a great-grandson, Brody. His love and relationship with classic cars, especially Corvettes, was a lifelong passion. He collected and displayed many at local auto shows. He and his son, Joe, attended several auto shows a year, growing into a wonderful bond that every father and son hoped to share. His devotion and attention to his grandsons was also a passion. His youthful person, life experiences, and sense of adventure and humor made him an inspiring grandfather with plenty of wisdom to share. He taught them to always be curious, seek knowledge, enjoy nature, engage with everybody, and to fully appreciate family and friends.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 14, 2018, at Hanes Lineberry Sedgefield Chapel, 6000 W. Gate City Blvd., Greensboro, NC, 27407.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro, 2500 Summit Ave., Greensboro, NC 27405 or Studebaker National Foundation at www.studebakernationalfoundation.org. Online condolences may be made at www.haneslineberryfuneralhomes.com.
