Joseph was a finance director at Schering-Plough, but his greatest achievement was his family. He was a fun loving husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed road trips, especially when Disney World was the destination. Other hobbies included watching the NY Giants and spending time with his many beloved dogs over the years. Joseph was a proud United States Army veteran.
Joseph is survived by his wife of 60 years Helen, his children Linda Rizzo, Joseph Bencic Jr., Barbara (Richard) Pazer, Julie (Anthony) Cartusciello and his sister Marianne Colasanti. He will also be missed by his cherished grandchildren, Skylar Rizzo, Sam Rizzo, Anthony Joseph Cartusciello, Jake Cartusciello, Richard Pazer and Matthew Pazer.
