Joseph M. Liberatore - Henrietta, NY - Rochester Cremation

Joseph M. Liberatore of Henrietta passed away at home on May 1, 2020 at the age of 87. He was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. He moved to Rochester in 1962 and lived there until his death.

He was predeceased by his father Enrico, mother Margaret and siblings Fabiana and Dominic. He is survived by brothers Angelo, Enrico and Salvatore.

He is also survived by a loving family consisting of wife Sonia, daughters; Valerie Liberatore-Szeluga ( Eugene), Cristina Liberatore ( Jeffery Middaugh), Lisa Scott (Rob)

And Cynthia Liberatore. Grandchildren; Elizabeth Szeluga, Michael Hamlin, Justin Szeluga and Rosie Scott.

Joe was employed for 25 years in the Department of Respiratory Therapy, several of those years as department head. He then worked in car sales until retirement.

He loved cars and car races and frequently attended Daytona 500 races. He also loved football games and was a diehard Buffalo Bills fan. He attended an Honor Flight trip with his daughter Lisa and subsequently became involved in Honor flight activities and fund raisers.

Joe was known for his bigger than life personality: his quick sense of humor and his charismatic demeanor. He lived with passion- everyone knew what he loved and what he didn’t. He greatly enjoyed the company of his loving family and his life long friends. He will be greatly missed.

A celebration of his life will be arranged at a later date at the convenience of his family
