Joseph Frank "Dr. A" Abbadessa Obituary
Joseph Frank Abbadessa 'Dr. A'
1945 - 2020
Joseph Frank Abbadessa, 74, of Buckingham, Pa., formerly of Staten Island, Doctor of Dental Surgery and partner of Dental Associates of Richmond, PC, Staten Island, and former assistant director of dentistry at Staten Island University Hospital, died Friday, Jan. 31, 2020.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Melissa Abbadessa, and his faithful Dachsund "Slinky."
He practiced dentistry for over 40 years on Staten Island, and his easy-going manner and humor made patients and dental residents feel at ease.
He was a die-hard sports fan. Joe had season tickets to the NY Rangers for over 30 years along with being a die-hard Boston Red Sox fan and suffering in NY with those "damn Yankees' fans"!!! Of course, the Giants were his pro-football team and the Crimson Tide of Alabama was his favorite college team. Joe enjoyed attending sporting events and music concerts.
He was avid coffee connoisseur and enjoyed many sweets, especially chocolate cake and donuts. He was a generous and kind man who also enjoyed treating family and close friends to good times and fine dining. Joe was a great "Popeye" to his grandchildren and always spoiled them, allowing them to do whatever they wanted when they visited him.
After moving to Pennsylvania, Joe enjoyed a slower pace of life which included sitting on his deck and reading his NY newspapers with Slinky. He also enjoyed walking around Peddler's Village and New Hope, Pa.
Besides his wife, Joe is survived by his twin sister, Dianne; two brothers, Paul and Frankie; daughter, Christine; grandchildren, Briana, Bevin, and Blake; nieces, Jennifer, Danielle, Joanna, and Sabina Genevieve. Joe will be forever loved and missed by family and friends.
Relatives and friends will be received on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020, from 1 p.m. until time of service at 3 p.m. at the Decker Funeral Home, 216 York Rd., Warminster, Pa. 18974 .
