MEMORIAM In Loving Memory of Gesuele "Joseph" Tartaglia November 22, 1940 - February 11, 2012 A year ago today You were taken away. We still ask why it had to be this way. Deep in our hearts The great sadness and pain will never go away. Our lives have not been the same Since the day you floated away. Your voice and laughter that filled our ears Is now so far away. Your smiling face seems to be fading away. Our memories of you will not be frayed. Your kind and gentle ways Will forever in our hearts stay. As it will always be this way. Your greatness will forever stay the same. Your soul is here to stay. You are greatly missed by many Far too many to be named. Our eternal love for you will never change. With love always your family, Teresa, Anthony, Carmela, Domenic, Gale, Sabino, Susan, Joseph, Dana, Anthony Jr. Michael, Kristina, Robert, Jenna & Amanda

My life was changed the day I met Joe T. We worked as a team for 8 years and he became like a Father to me. He taught me the value of hard work, and the importance of family and friends. I have so many memories that I can still hear his voice in my prayers. We all have been blessed by his time on this Earth and though his passing is sad, we are happy to have been close to him. May he rest in peace. God Bless Him, Jim, Janet, and Alissa DeCarlo

Dear Teresa & Family, I will never forget the day we met in front of my home. You, Teresa was passing by going for your morning walk and I turned my head and you said "Welcome to the neighborhood". Joe was outside your home and you waved to him and he walked over to our house to meet us. That was July 3rd of 2010, and that was the day we all became friends. It was our pleasure to have know Joe, even if it was just for a while. We will always remember the times we gathered around your kitchen table, talking, laughing. Joe will be sorely missed by us....and we are glad to have know him. Godspeed, Joe!!!!

Pop, it has almost been a year since you have passed away and still to this day i cant believe it, I miss you calling me Falconieri and always cracking jokes. I miss our one hour conversations daily and the way that you could always make me laugh. I will never forget all the times that we had together to Seaside park, Playland and the mall. You were more than my pop you were my best friend and my role model. I will always remember you as the last time you hugged me and told me you loved me. Love you forever and always <3 <3 Kristina

Dear Teresa, Carmela, Tony, Domenic and families, I was shocked and very saddened to hear of Gesuele's passing. The tributes that I have been reading here are beautiful and truly reflect many of the qualities of this wonderful man and his family that I had the honor to finally meet, if only once, after a few phone conversations. I called him a few years ago, out of the blue, while doing research on our family tree, always stuck when it came to those Connecticut relatives who nobody seemed to know. I didn't even know if I had the right person. He called me back, all excited and assured me I had the right person. He was so open and big hearted and couldn't wait to share what he knew of our family here and in Italy. We compare notes and even some photos. I knew from talking to him that I had to meet him! When we did get together, in Connecticut, what a surprise! I got to meet almost the entire family and sit down to eat with you too. I was immediately comfortable and felt like I belonged. That is the sign of a big and loving heart, passed all the way down and through his wonderful grandchildren too. He and Patsy took me around and to the cemetery so I could know where the relative are buried. His sense of family and its history was so strong and he loved that I cared and that I made the connection. I am so grateful for that experience. I thought for sure we would have the opportunity to meet again but, very sadly, that is not to be. My heart goes out to all of you. When someone that loving dies, the pain is that much greater. That love never goes away, it will always remain in you and it will, eventually, lessen and ease the ache of his physical absence. Rest in peace, Gesuele. Thank you. With deepest sympathy, Robert

Teresa and Family, Joe was a wonderful Godfather to me, and even though I didn't get to see him that often I knew that he loved me and was watching over me always. I have met very few people in my life who were as kind, sincere, funny and thoughtful as he was. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Joe will never be forgotten. Love, Alissa (DeCarlo) DeGregorio

Theresa ,Carmela,Tony, Dom we are so sorry for your loss Joe was such a good guy. One time when he took me for a ride and we ended up at rye playland just out of the blue. He let me go on the rides and bought me lunch because that was the kinda guy he was always making people happy. He will be missed

Joe T. was and will always be the greatest neighbor we will ever know. I will miss him standing down his driveway to "see me off to work", I will miss him singing in Italian while he trims his trees on a Saturaday morning, then later in the day asking me if "he woke me up". :) He fought a good fight, and will always be loved.
Carmela left a message on February 16, 2012:
Dad, words cannot express the void and emptiness I feel since you have been gone. I will always remember the beautiful dresses you bought me from Skydel's when I was little. Also, when you would come from work after working second shift and checking on me and getting me a glass of milk. I can still remember the look on your face when we gave you the surprise 70th bday party. I never imagined it would be the last party we would have for you. I will never forget our last Christmas together - the unspoken words between me and you - I knew you were hanging on just to be with us all. You worked hard all your life to provide for us. I know now that you are in heaven you will be in peace. Please continue to look down on me and my family so that we can continue to follow the right path. Rest in peace...love your only daughter oxoxo.
