Tammaro, Joseph A. "Joe"
Nov 13, 1951 - Jan 7, 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Joseph A. Tammaro, "Joe," announce his passing on Thursday, January 7, 2021 at the age of 69. He was a loving husband, father of two children, and two grandchildren.
Joe was born on November 13, 1951 in Philadelphia, PA to William and Elena (Mastroni) Tammaro. He received his liberal arts and economics degree from Temple University in 1973. He was the business starter and owner of T-N-T Tops-N-Tees for over 35 years in Sarasota, Florida.
Joe was an avid skier, skilled guitar and tennis player, lover of the beach, the crisp mountain air and animals.
Joe was preceded in death by his parents, William and Elena and his brother, Bobby. He is survived and will lovingly be remembered by his wife, Shirley, two children, Joshua and Jeanna, son-in-law, Mark, siblings, Bill and Loretta, grandchildren, Isaac and Penelope, and beloved dog, Howard K. Dog.
Joe wish was to spend eternity among the seas, so his ashes will be laid to rest in the Gulf of Mexico at a later date. In lieu of funeral services please consider making donations to TideWell Hospice, Inc., the Sarasota Food Bank, or the Humane Society of Sarasota.

Deepest sympathies to the Tammaro family. I was Joe's back door neighbor and client. He ordered tees, and prepared logos for Brookside Middle School Athletic Dept. Such a creative, kind man, with a BIG heart! God bless his memory! So sorry to read of his passing, thankful I met Joe and enjoyed his friendship as a back door neighbor. R.I.P. Joe, you have earned your Heavenly wings.

We played tennis with Joe twice a week. His friends gave him the nickname “mongoose” , because despite his size he always found a way to get to the ball, get it back and win. He recommended great books, spoke his truth, and always made us laugh! The courts won’t be the same and we will think of him and smile every time we play. He will be missed.
