LEOMINSTER---Joseph DePasquale, 62, of Leominster died Thursday, November 16, 2017 at Saint Vincent’s Hospital in Worcester surrounded by family and friends.

Joe was born September 3, 1955 in Leominster to Isabella (Mammone) and John DePasquale. He leaves a daughter Ava and son Lucian of Leominster; his stepson Dillon Womble and his wife Angela of Templeton; his brother John and wife Jessie of West Virginia; his sister Justine and husband Kenneth Parezo of Baltimore, Maryland; his brother James DePasquale of Leominster and many friends, nieces and nephews.

Joe graduated from Leominster High School, class of 1973, and was a proud member of the LHS Football Team. Joe played center field for the 1970 New England Champion Babe Ruth Baseball Team. The team was honored for their achievements with a special ceremony at Fenway Park. Joe was a gifted designer working as Head Design Engineer for United Solutions of Leominster for over 25 years.

Joe loved woodworking, gardening, fly fishing, his beautiful pet dogs and all sports. He was a builder of surfboards of his own design and spent every summer surfing with family and friends at York Beach, Maine. Sitting around a campfire after a day surfing at the beach with a cold beer and telling stories with friends and family was Joe’s idea of a perfect day.

Joe could fix anything and was always generous with his time. He was a master woodworker whose special wooden Christmas presents are cherished by all lucky enough to have them.

Joe was very proud of his children, Ava, Lucian and Dillon. He loved spending time with them, watching their sports and activities and seeing them grow up.

Joe will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, loyalty and honesty. His warm and engaging personality and smile will be missed.

Joe’s funeral service will be held on Monday, November 20th from the Silas F. Richardson & Son Funeral Home, 106 West Street, Leominster with a mass at 11 am in St. Anna’s Church, 194 Lancaster Street, Leominster. Burial will be in St. Leo’s Cemetery, Leominster. Calling hours will be held on Sunday, November 19th from 4-7 pm in the funeral home.

To the Family,
We have both known Joe for most of our lives. Elise knew him since junior high school. Mitch has known him since high school, and has had the privilege of spending time with him multiple times each year over the last several years despite the many miles that separated us. We will cherish our memories of him. We send our heartfelt thoughts to you, especially Ava and Lucian.
Mitch and Elise

To Joe's Friends,
There could be no closer group of friends. The memories of frequent trips, and daily text messages and emails have always kept us together like we lived next door to each other. We will be committed to continue our closeness, with Joe always in our hearts. He will always remain in our conversations, a source of our laughter, and a reminder of the value of our time together. Forever!
Love to all of you,

I had not known Joe very long but in the short time I got to know him I enjoyed his company and quickly realized that he was a great guy and loved by so many. Me included. We travelled together just a few months ago to Chicago with a group of guys to see a Cubs game. What a fun time with Joe. Enjoyed our chats and of course a beer or two at the ball park. I am so sorry to hear that he has died. I didn't know that he was so sick hence the shock on hearing. I will remember him always and keep him in my prayers. God rest his soul. O'B
