Joseph Dominick Papasidero (Papa Joe) (age 84) passed away peacefully on the afternoon of April 10, 2018 surrounded by his family. Born and raised in Port Washington, N.Y. After returning from overseas as a veteran of war, Joe married his wife of 62 years, Agnes (1934-2016). Joe devoted his life to raising, protecting, and providing for his family as a police officer and a business owner following his retirement from the Port Washington Police Department.
He is survived by his sister Carmela, his children Joe, Vera, and Mike, his grandchildren, Michael, Chris (Crystal), Sarah, Mikey, and Emma, his great-grand daughter who is due to be born in September of 2018, all his nieces and nephews, the entire extended family, and his many friends. “Papa Joe” will be remembered for his forward thinking, his unbreakable sense of humor, his extreme optimism and his tireless efforts to provide a better future for his family.
Joe will always be remembered for the family man he was. A private service will be held for the family.
For those who wish to honor his life may simply do so by keeping fond memories of him.
