Joseph Coluccio Obituary

Joseph Coluccio, 90, of Hazlet, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at Bayshore Medical Center, Holmdel, New Jersey. Joseph was born on August 10, 1933, in Gioiosa Ionica, Reggio Calabria, Italy. In 1949, Joseph immigrated to Brooklyn, New York, and it was there that he met Corine Sabatino, who he fell in love with at first sight. Joseph and Corine married and eventually welcomed their son, Peter. After living in Brooklyn for many years, they then moved to Staten Island, New York. A year after Corine passed in 2011, Joseph moved to Hazlet, New Jersey to be closer to his family.

Joseph was self employed for most of his life; He owned and operated his own construction company and eventually retired. Joseph was a huge baseball fan and especially loved the New York Yankees. He loved spending time with his family, who lovingly referred to him as "Poppy," and had a sweet spot in his heart for the family dogs, Mimi, Ajax, and Lollipop. Joseph was an exceptional cook, and his family loved to enjoy his food as well as hear stories about his life. Joseph will be greatly missed, never forgotten, and always loved.

Joseph was predeceased by his parents, Rocco and Marianna (Logozzo) Coluccio, his wife, Corine (Sabatino) Coluccio, and his siblings, Vincenzo Coluccio and Rosa Coluccio. He is survived by his son, Peter M. and wife Jill Coluccio of Leonardo, New Jersey, his grandchildren, Peter J. and Melissa Coluccio, and his great grandchild, Arabella Coluccio.
