Joseph Alfonso

Upper Saddle River, NJ - Joseph Alfonso of Upper Saddle River, NJ passed away suddenly at home on Thursday, March 19th, 2020. He was born to the late Benjamin and Sylvia Alfonso in Jersey City, NJ. He grew up and went to school in Lyndhurst, NJ.

In 1983 he married his beloved wife Jean (O'Brien) of Blauvelt, NY. They lived in Mahwah, NJ for many years before moving to Upper Saddle River in 2000 where they raised their family. Joe is survived by his loving wife Jean and their three devoted children. Kristian Alfonso of New York City, Matthew Alfonso of Baltimore, MD and Sean Alfonso of Upper Saddle River, NJ. Also survived by his many brother and sister in laws and nephews and nieces who loved him dearly.

Joe had a long and and successful career in retail and management but would tell anyone who would listen that his real triumph in life was his children. He was a wonderful father, devoted to his children without measure. No conversation was complete without an update on his kids. He will be dearly missed by his devoted friends of many years Bill Tiner and John Vignola. Joe had an easy smile and sense of humor. He will be missed by all who loved him.

In light of the current health situation, funeral services for Joseph will be limited to family and relatives. A Memorial Mass will be held in the near future. For more information contact Moritz Funeral Home in Tappan, NY.

he was so special and proud that in his latest
project he arranged for an isle especially motivated
by one of his children who needed special foods, as many people who were ignored for needing them
to stay very healthy.

I had the pleasure of working for Joe at Acme Markets for a little over three years, he was a great, funny, caring store manager and I will miss his guidance and sense of humor very much. He only had the Fort Lee store since being with Acme. I know he worked for ShopRite years ago. I know he had an operation last month which was successful and was still going to therapy and was due back at work in a few weeks but unfortunately his life was cut short but his presence will always be felt no matter what. Not sure when he was planning to retire. I never met this family. He will be missed very much by the Acme team, all the best during this solemn time. Charlie

PS Joe was the only manager who would call me "the man" which was his way of saying you are the best which meant he appreciated the hard work and dedication I put into my job.
