Joseph W. Barth

AGE: 93 • Brooklawn

Joseph W. Barth on March 1, 2014 of Brooklawn. Age 93. Beloved husband of the late Helen A. (nee Gallagher). Devoted father of Joseph, Jr. (Jane), Joanne Mazzola (Dan), Dennis (Kelli) and the late Robert and John.

Also survived by many nieces and nephews and dear friends Dr. Robert Nannay "Dink", Bo Jenkinson, Sue Oropallo (the late Dr. Anthony Oropallo), Dan and Bea Mazzola, and his faithful pal Brooker.

Joseph was the owner and accountant of Barth Taxes. He was a member of the Brooklawn American League Post 72 and was the baseball manager for Brooklawn Legion Baseball for over 60 years. Joseph was a Phillies scout for over 20 years, was named 2000 Amateur Baseball Manager of the Year by USA Baseball, and was inducted into the South Jersey Hot Stovers Hall of Fame.
