Joseph was one of four children born to the late Joseph Charles Lucignano and the late Mildred (nee Rubbinaccio) Lucignano. He was predeceased by his daughter, Jillian. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Paula (nee Giangolano).

Joseph’s greatest joy and blessings in his life were his cherished grandchildren, Joseph and Jordan Lucignano, Peyton and Dillon Monaghan. He had many nieces, nephews, cousins, along with countless family and friends all of whom were blessed to know him. We take this opportunity to acknowledge Joe’s childhood friend David Kaltenbach and his good friend Tony Lama.
Joseph was an avid sports fan, loved spending time at the beach, fishing and spending quality time with his grandchildren and family. Family and friends will gather to recall the life of a man who was always there to lend a helping hand to all, always ready with a quick joke and whenever in his company, you left with a smile.
