Joseph  Chiodo
Joseph Chiodo, 94, of Sharpsville, went to be with the Lord Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020.
Joe resided in Sharpsville with his wife, daughter, and son-in-law.
He was born Nov. 17, 1925, in Sharon, the son of the late Anna (Morocco) and Antonio Chiodo.
Joe was a talented bass singer and guitar player, which is why the then-Ms. Pennsylvania asked him to accompany her. This talent and his love for the Lord lead him to sing and play for the Royal Heirs Quartet, which produced an album titled "Bring Me Back to the Cross".
He was an active member of Farrell Christian Assemblies of God, driving the church bus for years. Joe also drove truck for Golden Dawn and owned the Farrell Dairy Queen on Broadway with his brother, Dave. Later, he went on to own a small construction company.
Joe enjoyed playing his guitar, Morra (the Italian hand game), ping pong, and backyard bocce. He loved watching a good boxing match and spending time with his family.
He is survived by: his wife, Sarah (Stigliano) and would have been married for 70 years June 17; three daughters, Sally (Lucas), Rita, Joellen (Arenas) and her husband George; three grandchildren, Jennifer (Lucas) married to Steven Hockstra, Steven Lucas and Josh Lucas married to Lauren (Carnino); and three great-grandchildren, Lillian and Clara Hockstra and Amelia Lucas; friend and caregiver, Dale Ward; and his close and loyal companion, his loving cat, Amici.
He is preceded in death by his brothers and sister: Pete, Torrie, Frank, John, Maria Carmine, Esther, Carmen, and Dave; son-in-law, Jeff Lucas, and great-granddaughter, McKenzie Lynn Lucas.
Joe loved all animals, so in lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Shenango Valley Animal Shelter, 2599 Broadway Road, Hermitage.
A visitation will be from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday (2-15-20) at Assembly of God, 1455 N. Keel Ridge Road, Hermitage.
A celebration of life will follow from 11:30 a.m. to noon Saturday at the church.

He filled that bus with Tigers Steelers and Hornets and his wife Sara is a saint.
