20 junio , 1938 – 29 mayo , 2021
Joseph LoPresto, resident of Greenwich, CT, passed away on May 29, 2021. He was 82 years of age.
Born in Port Chester, NY on June 20, 1938, he was the son of Joseph and Margret (nee Lonzo) LoPresto. Joseph graduated from Port Chester High School in 1956. A year after graduation, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and proudly served for six years. Joe then went on to spend the majority of his career working for Avon Products in Rye as part of their IT support staff.
He was a parishioner of St. Mary’s Church in Port Chester, where he married his love, Carol of 59 years. Joe will be remembered for his outgoing personality and his big smile. He was always ready for a good time. Joe’s many hobbies included his love of boating, and he could often be found on one of his many boats he called the Yo-Yo. He harbored great enjoyment from fishing, clamming, checking ‘HIS’ lobster pots and ringing the bell buoy. Open air and fresh seas were the recipe for a good time to him.
Joe and his family spent many summers camping at Calf’s Island, making for many stories of family adventures with the grandkids. His family vacations included The Jersey Shore, Villa Roma Wk#6/32, Lake George, Florida Keys, and our huge family vacation at Walt Disney World, FL. For every birthday, anniversary, holiday and BBQ he was always the life of the party! The Byram Veteran’s Club was his second home for hanging out watching games, socializing, parties, parades, and card games. The Vet’s was a huge part of his life where the members became family.
Other places that Joe called home were the Boat Yard at the end of Fox Island Road in Port Chester, where he would spend hours working on his boat and hanging out with other boaters. Once he moved to Greenwich, he joined the Byram Shore Boat Club and made many friends. One who stands out is Stanley who spent many hours in Joe’s final years just chatting and remembering the good old days. He loved a game of golf, golf trips taken with the guys and bragging about his game. After achieving 35 years of service with Avon Products, he was gifted with a fitting of custom PING golf clubs that he cherished.
In addition to his parents, Joe was predeceased by his wife Carol, who passed on April 19, 2021. Survivors include his daughters, Pamela (Nicholas) Paolicelli, and Jo Ann (Peter) Ehnes; grandchildren, Angela (Alfred) Mosiello, Jennifer Paolicelli & fiancé Andrew Herman, Peter Ehnes, Christian Ehnes, and Symantha Ehnes; great-granchildren, Jaxson and Isabella Mosiello, Evelyn and Thomas Herman; sisters Carmella (Peter) Fetzko, Margaret (Dominic) DiPalma, and Angela LoPresto; brother, Frank LoPresto (Linda Schmaling) and a host of nieces and nephews.
Calling Hours will be held at Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home, 31 Arch Street, Greenwich, CT on Monday, June 7th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. A prayer service will be held at 12:30 p.m. Burial with Military Honors will immediately follow at St. Mary Cemetery, 1 High Street, Rye Brook, NY.
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asks that you make a donation in Joe’s name to Regional Hospice of Danbury, 30 Milestone Road, Danbury, CT.

there is one funny memory I have of Joe. when his wife was going through something, he said to his wifes doctor. Please hurry this up. but he loved her and respected her. he was very close to his family and loved them sincerely. I know he will be missed terribly, but to his family, I want to say, you know he will be watching over you . He was proud of you and now his is with the love of his life, your mom and grandma. God will protect them both and if you allow him, he will comfort you now . my deepest condolences on the loss of a great man, a husband, father, grandfather, uncle and brother. rest in peace .

To the family of Joseph,
Sorry for your loss. Did you know that the dead can live again? Acts 24:15 promises that "There is going to be a resurrection" Those who are brought back to life on earth will have the prospect of living forever in perfect health.
Ps. 34: 18,19 says God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those crush in spirit. Remember that God is not the cause of death. (James 1:13) Prayer is important at this time.(1 Thessalonians 5:17) Hope these scriptures bring you comfort!
