March 3, 1956 – July 28, 2019
"In loving memory of the most selfless, honest, intelligent, resourceful, witty, kind-hearted man we call dad. Joseph Squeo, age 63, passed away peacefully in the comfort of his own home on July 28th 2019 in Lisle, Illinois. Loving father to Joseph Wiliam and Gina Marie, master of all trades, and proud retired member of the IBEW local 134 where he worked as an electrician for over 30 years. Joe built an entire life for himself with his own hands and no help from friends or family. He created a dream life worth raving about; Including re-building an entire cottage on lake Wisconsin, obtaining a plethora of toys like boats, snowmobiles, motorcycles, and cars, and marrying and having two beautiful children who became the light of his life; whom he passed down his lifelong knowledge, lessons, and unconditional love to. Joe had a soft spot for animals, always donated to charities, put others needs before himself, and would never hesitate to help someone in need. He most enjoyed taking his motorcycle out for a long cruise, fishing with his son, enjoying a cold beer out on the water, thrifting with his daughter, watching the bees and hummingbirds enjoy his garden, pondering about the universe, taking Roxy on lunch dates to the Portillos drive through, and of course disputing about topics he was strongly passionate about. Joe will forever be remembered through the love he filled his children with and the powerful life lessons he taught them. Theres givers and there’s takers in this world and Joe is the epitome of a giver." Visitation will take place at Blake - Lamb Funeral Home 5015 Lincoln Ave., Lisle, on Saturday August 3 from 3 PM to 9 PM. Interment will take place privately. For more information please call (630) 964-9392.

Dear Joe and Gina
I am your dads cousin Joanne. He was always my little cousin "Joey"
we were very close as children . My parents were Auntie Rose and Uncle John . Your dad was always laughing and kidding around. He was a cute adorable little guy and we would visit with our Auntie Annie and Uncle Joe and the kids and Joey was my little buddy. I remember him being a stubborn little fella when he was really small if he didn't get his way he would hit his head on the floor but after a while we would alll just laugh!!! and he would stop and start talking and laughing like nothing happened . I know how much he loved the lake too . i hope he was able to spend lots of time there. I will always remember him as my sweet little buddy and I'm so glad he had such a loving family who appreciate him so much and love him the way you do. i'm sure he is with God and I will pray that you have peace . My deepest sympathy Love and Peace Joanne Franceschini

My heart felt condolences to the Squeo family. I haven't seen Joe in many years. As kids and into our late teens I have many memories of Joe. Most do when you grow up down the street from each other. Years later, I smile when I think of my many interactions with Joe. Rest peacefully Joe.
