Joseph Palopoli, a 50 year resident of Margate/Coconut Creek, passed away peacefully at home with his wife of 62 years in the early morning this Memorial Day. The son of Italian American parents, Joe was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 7th, 1933. At 19 years old, he met the love of his life, Roseann Salerno and they married on October 20th, 1956.

He and Roseann were instrumental in growing St. Vincent Catholic Church in Margate, where they were Eucharistic Ministers and members of the The Saint Vincent DePaul Society and Joe, a 4th degree Knight of Columbus for over 25 years. A loyal Jets fan, Joe enjoyed watching football, playing tennis or bowling with friends, but most of all spending time with family, including grandchildren Adam Elias, Ryan Elias (Laura), Joseph Palopoli III and Michael Victor Palopoli.
