Joe Petitti of Milton passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Feb. 12, 2019.
The adoring husband of Colleen (Keating), better known to him as “Babe,” of over 35 years, he was a devoted father to Patrick and his wife Emily (Cincotta) of Milton, Ryan and his fiance Rosie Henry of Milton, and Bridget and her boyfriend Greg Tremblay of South Boston; and a caring grandfather to “Little Joe.” He was also brother to Kathy and Ed Sobel, Kevin and Denise Petitti, Ann and Ken Spitza, Linda and Paul Barnard, Andy Petitti, and Julie Silva.
Joe’s most beloved roles were being a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. His most cherished memories include coaching his kids’ sports teams and spending time on the ocean on the “Hakuna Matata” or catamaran. He leaves behind his adored Jeep with the license plate ARRRR, a nod to his love of Captain Morgan.
Joe’s family would like to extend special thanks to the team at Beth Israel Deaconess in Plymouth and Seasons Hospice for their extraordinary compassion and care.
A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Feb. 16 at St. Agatha Church in Milton. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joe’s name may be sent to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund (where 100 percent of all donations go directly toward Alzheimer’s research) at www.curealz.org.
