Joseph A. Lalli Sr.

Joseph A. Lalli, Sr. passed away peacefully on April 23rd, 2021, in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 73. Joe was born back east and later brought to Tucson by his beloved parents in the '50's. After graduating from Palo Verde High School and Eastern Arizona College, Joe worked as a radio repair technician for Motorola while starting his own security firm in the 70's.

Gifted in the field of electronics, Joe taught courses at Pima Community College. He loved to fly, watch old westerns, play rockabilly guitar, and drive off-the-beaten-path. Without a pretentious bone in his body, he hoped his humor and goodwill would reciprocate onto others.

Joe is survived by his daughter, three sons, many grandchildren, a great grandchild, his brother, and former wife who comforted Joe to the very end. Thank you to the extended family for bringing happiness to Joe’s life and putting some pep in his step.

Special thanks to Casa De La Luz who rushed out after hours to see Joe and provide tender, loving support and care.

We all love and miss Joe; his memory will forever live in our hearts. Memorial Services will be held at East Lawn Palms Mortuary on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 2 P.M. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of choice.

I worked with Joe at Motorola back in the early 1970’s. Joe was one of the best techs ever. We could spends hours shooting the bull over all kinds of technical stuff. I will miss his infectious laugh, his enthusiasm for life, and flying down to Nogales for lunch. It was kind of hard to talk to him after the jaw surgery but thanks to Karen’s translations we got by. I will miss him dearly
