Joe was preceded in death by his brother, John Tomasello. Joe wrote a memoir about his life and he finished this with a quote from the novel The Match by Mark Frost which really expresses who he was: '"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather to skid in broad side thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming... Wow, what a ride!" I truly believe I have lived or tried to live my life skidding in broad side.'There will be no public service, a private family service may be held in the future. For those wishing, memorial contributions may be made in Joe’s honor to the Wounded Warrior Project, www.support.woundedwarriorproject.org or the American Liver Foundation, www.liverfoundation.org.
