Joe Gapastione Death, Obituary – The sad news of Joe Gapastione’s passing was brought to our attention this morning, and it has left our hearts aching with a pain that words cannot adequately describe. Joey G was the proprietor of the deli that was known as Al & Joe’s. The establishment could be found in Franklin Park and catered to the residents of the surrounding area. Beloved by a large number of individuals, and the community came together to support him during his fight against cancer; however, his family was the group that stood by him with the utmost dedication and commitment during this time.
We want his daughter Gia and the rest of his family to know that they are in our thoughts and that we are sending our sincerest condolences during this trying time. During this difficult time, we would like his daughter Gia to know that her family is in our thoughts and prayers. We had hoped that this year’s Turkey Bowl would be a gathering of soldiers ready to symbolically join the fight with the Gapastione Tribe; however, it is now a celebration of the life of this great man as well as the ongoing support of his niece TessaStrong and her Aunt Christina as they continue to fight cancer.
We hope that you will join us in honoring the life of this great man and in showing your continued support. We are hoping that you will be able to celebrate the life of this remarkable individual with us and that you will continue to show your support. At this year’s Turkey Bowl, there won’t be a gathering of soldiers getting ready to engage in combat with the Gapastione Tribe, and we will miss that opportunity. Those who are loved by others are unable to end their own lives when the time has come for them to do so. because love is the one and only way that can lead to a life that goes on forever.” Attending the Turkey Bowl on February 5 will not only allow us to show this family an enormous amount of love and support, but it will also allow us to give a resounding middle finger to the devastation that is cancer.
