Joseph E. Kanabrocki Obituary
Joseph E. Kanabrocki

AGE: 76 • Ormond Beach, FL

Joseph E. Kanabrocki, 76, of Ormond Beach, Florida, died September 7, at home after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was a long time resident of Brick Township NJ, before relocating to Florida upon retirement.

He is survived by his three children: Dean, Darren and Dana, brother John Kanabrocki and wife Debbie, ex- spouse Andrea Kanabrocki and three grandchildren, Brianna, Luke and Logan. Joe was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Helen Kanabrocki and his sister Mary.

Joe was born in Newark, New Jersey and spent his childhood in Colonia, NJ. He was blessed from a young age with a mechanical inclination that encompassed many disciplines. His ability to troubleshoot and diagnosis a mechanical problem will be greatly missed by all that loved him. He proudly served 4 years as a United States Marine and the discipline and attention to detail he learned in the Marine Corps never left him, as friends and family will attest. After the Marines he became an Electrician, and worked at LJ Wing Company before retiring from American Can Company in 2003. He was a devout Christian who regularly attended services and bible study. Joe maintained a high level of fitness throughout his life by training in traditional martial arts and boxing. He was a founding member of the Gung Ho Chuan Association (GHCA), a close quarters combat association that practiced and kept WWII USMC combative techniques alive. He was an active instructor to law enforcement and military members at his home gym.

Joe enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson Motorcycle and was a member of the Sons Of God, and later, the Paladins motorcycle clubs.

A celebration of the life of Joseph Kanabrocki will be held on October 28, 2017, 12:00-3:00 pm at the Veterans Of Foreign Wars (VFW) 383 Veterans Blvd., Bayville, NJ 08721.
