Obit of Joseph Rossi 2017-06-15T07:10:28+00:00

Joe (Joseph Leon) Rossi

Left this world the morning of June 2, 2012 after 89 3/4 – full years of Life.

His family will hold a Celebration of his Light on Earth – Saturday June 9th at 10:33 a.m. at Gate of Heaven Cemetery and Mausoleum corner of Paseo Del Norte and Wyoming Blvd, NE, Albuquerque, NM.  Please bring your fondest memories and join us.

Joe request that you please give flowers to your loved ones, not him because he can’t smell them anyway.

Joe now joins Genevieve, his wife and forever love, his mother Sophia, his grandson and namesake Joey, his sister Helen Potnick, his brothers Leon and Bert Bonfadini, and their countless loving lifelong friends. All who, along with St. Peter, have greeted him with hugs and smiles of joy, as he is now free from taxes.

Joe requested this be short as he said, “They charge too much for an Obit.”
