Joseph M. Pontoriero, of Greenwich, CT passed away June 16, 2021, at age 81. Joe was born December 13, 1939 in Newark, New Jersey to Michael and Lucia Pontoriero. He was the owner of Worth Construction, which he founded in Bethel Connecticut in 1978. His great love of cars began as a young man and continued throughout his life with his extensive collection of sports cars. He spent a number of years racing Ferraris on tracks all over North America. His passion for travel took him to many wonderful places but the two that were most dear to his heart were Anguilla and Italy.

Complete shocker, my deepest sympathies. I worked for Joe for a little over 4 years, great guy and total class act. I liked our non-business chemistry as well, we shared a lot of laughs. I only left there to form my own business, I would never have left to work for someone else. Once again my condolences.
