Joe was a respected businessman who succeeded with the dedicated support of his wife Julia, brother Ralph and wife Nancy Ingenito and sister Mary Zadjura who all worked to bring the family business, Ingenito Florist and Landscape Center, to success for 65 years. His love of growing plants and flowers was not only a profession but his hobby in retirement.
