He loved to garden, take care of his fig trees, play bocce and make his homemade wine.

In addition to his wife Grace, Joseph’s legacy will be carried on by his children, Catherine Vassallo, Susan Berry and her husband Michael, and Joseph J Vassallo; his grandsons, Brett Schade and his wife Rachel, Nico Tuckfield and Joseph P Vassallo.
