Joseph Chandler Cathcart III


AGE: 37 • New Castle

Joseph Chandler Cathcart III, age 37, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

A native Delawarean, Joseph was born in Wilmington on November 12, 1979, and was the son of Joseph Chandler Cathcart, Jr. and Cathy A. (Malice) Cathcart. He made his career as a professional forklift operator with the Diamond State Port Corporation, where he worked for the past 18 years.

A lifelong fitness enthusiast, Joseph enjoyed exercising regularly and especially liked boxing. He was a passionate foodie and relished creating delicious home- cooked meals for others. In his leisure time, Joseph loved a good game of cards, chess or checkers, was an avid history buff, and looked forward to trips to the beach. A devout Christian, he was a man of strong faith. Joseph will be remembered by his family and friends as a total jokster and accomplished prankster, devoted father, and beloved son, brother, and uncle. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Joseph is survived by his parents, Joseph C. Cathcart, Jr. (Karen) of Wilmington and Cathy A. Cathcart (Steve Ballas) of New Castle; son, Jordan Cappalo of Chestertown, MD; brother, Marc A. Cathcart, Sr. (Missy) and nephew and nieces, Marc, Karlee, and Kayleigh, all of New Castle; loving grandmother, Ruth Malice of New Castle; and many cousins, including Nikki, with whom he shared a special bond.

The family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to Joseph's girlfriend and loving companion, Dana.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 12 Noon on Friday, August 4, 2017, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a funeral service will begin at 12 Noon. Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE 19720.
