Obituary of Joseph D. Argenzia
Joseph Dominick Argenzia, 79, of Toms River, New Jersey, passed away on January 21, 2022, after courageously battling post-COVID illness. On his last day, he was surrounded by his wife, Maria “Cookie” Argenzia, and his children, Denyse Walpole and Dennis Argenzia. Joe was born in New York City in 1942 and moved to Emerson, New Jersey, at the age of 5. He was a lifelong resident of Emerson until moving to Berkeley Township 5 years ago. Joe served his country as a Navy underwater weapons specialist for submarines, and eventually retired from O’Sullivan Publishing where he was a senior vice president. He loved spending time with his family, celebrating holiday traditions, cooking, hunting, fishing, and lounging by the pool. Joe was a kind, generous, loving husband, father and grandfather, with a wicked sense of humor, and happy to offer a smile and a hello to anyone. Joe leaves behind his wife Maria “Cookie”; daughter Denyse Walpole and her husband Peter; son Dennis Argenzia and his wife Grace; and three grandchildren, Chloe and Quinn Walpole, and Tenzin Argenzia. Pre-deceased by his brother Patrick, he also leaves behind his sister-in-law Karen Argenzia; nephew Patrick and his wife Nicole; nephew Daniel; grandnephew Dominick; and grandnieces, Francesca and Lilly. All are forever grateful to have had him in their lives. Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, January 27, 2022, from 2-6 pm at Quinn-Hopping Funeral Home 26 Mule Road, Toms River, NJ 08755.
