Joseph Nickolas Aliotti, passed away on May 1, 2016 with his family by his side at the age of 87. Joe lived in Pittsburg his entire life where he spent a lot of his time playing sports and at the Pittsburg Marina.

Joe was an avid duck hunter for over 75 years, an athlete at PHS where he played baseball and basketball, and loved playing cards weekly with his Pinochle and Gin group.
