Joseph P. D’Alessandro, 88 of Wyoming, passed away Sunday evening, March 4, 2018 at his home after a brief illness.

Born in the Hilldale section of Plains Township, he was the son of the late Peter and Caroline (Akers) D’Alessandro.

Joseph was a graduate of Plains Memorial High School, Class of 1947, and was an Army Veteran of the Korean Conflict, attaining the rank of Corporal.

Joe worked for over 60 years as a painter contractor. His love of painting and working was only exceeded by the love of his family. That meant everything to him. He was a member of St. Barbara’s Parish, Exeter, The Elko’s Bowling League, Dupont and the Wyoming Hose Company #2. Joe was also a Little League coach for Wyoming Baseball.

He was preceded in death by his sisters Eleanor Keller and Marie Sabbatini, and his brother Frank D’Alessandro.

Surviving are his Sweetheart and Wife of 67 years, the former Dolores Mangione, daughter Ellen Maher and her husband Frank, Wyoming, sons Kristen D’Alessandro, Fayetteville, NC, and Joseph D’Alessandro and his wife Cindy, West Pittston, grandchildren Kaitlin and Jonathan Maher, and Kristy and Dominick D’Alessandro, brother and sister-in-law Bill and Theresa Mikelski, Hilldale, several nieces and nephews.

Joe’s family would like to thank Bayada Home Health for their compassionate care, particularly Mary Louise and Neil and Bayada Hospice.

A Mass of Christian Burial with Military Honors will be held 10:00 am Thursday, March 8, 2018 at St. Barbara’s Parish, St. Anthony of Padua Church, 224 Memorial Street, Exeter, PA 18643, with Father Michael E.
