Born in Scranton, son of the late Nageeb and Nageebe Ann Zaydon Abdo, Joe was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School and was a member of St. Ann Maronite Church in West Scranton. He had worked for his family's business, Abdo's Banner Food Store and later known as Affiliated Food in West Scranton, and then, before retirement, he was employed by the Scranton Sewer Authority.

Surviving are two sons, Thomas and Mary Anne, Scranton; and Joseph Jr. and his wife, Kristin, Clarks Summit; two grandchildren, Rebecca Ann Abdo and Robert Michael Abdo, both of Scranton; his former daughter-in-law, Lisa Amy Abdo, Scranton; as well as numerous cousins.

He was also preceded in death by an infant son, Robert Michael.

The funeral will be held Thursday with Divine Liturgy at 10 a.m. in St. Ann Maronite Church, Price Street and North Sumner Avenue, West Scranton, to be celebrated by Monsignor Francis J. Marini, pastor. All those attending the funeral are asked to go directly to Mass. Interment will be held at the convenience of the family in Sacred Heart Cemetery, West Scranton.
