Joseph M. Fazio
September 6, 1935 - December 30, 2017

Joseph M. Fazio, age 82, Casa Del Sol Resort Peoria, Arizona. He passed away at his home with family present on December 30, 2017. Joseph was the son of Anthony and Rose Fazio. He was born on September 6, 1935. He attended Mahanoy City High School, class of 1954, and married his high school sweetheart, Lois Blanch Faust. He earned his journeyman tool and dye maker certification, graduating from international correspondence school, Scanton, Pa in 1967. Joe moved to Phoenix, Arizona in December 1967 and was employed and retired from AT&T in 1990.

Joe never met a stranger and was known for his generosity and golden heart. He played the drums all his life and loved music. He was a member of the Phoenix bag pipe band for 30 years and learned to play the piano in his late 70's. He was a devout Eagles football fan and loved politics and had a definite opinion on both subjects and enjoyed sharing them with others.

In retirement, Joe traveled to many countries with his wife Lois, worked on cars and spent time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

He will be terribly missed by his wife of 63 years Lois Blanche Faust Fazio, his 2 daughters Lois Ann "Sandy" and Annmarie, grandchildren Henry, Sarah, Joey, Joshua, Stephanie, David, Tony, Shane, Aaron, and Andrew and 21 great-grandchildren.

The family wishes donations instead of flowers, which will be made to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Association.
