Joseph F. Tascone passed away on April 4, 2011, at age 87 after a brief illness.

He was born in Geneva, New York, and was a resident of Orlando, Florida.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years Madeline (Schwab) Tascone, originally of Duke Center, Pennsylvania. He is also survived by sons Joseph (Ann) Tascone of Newport, New York, David (Debra) Tascone of Cambridge, Ontario, daughters Jeanne Martel of Orlando, Florida and Susan Keays of Chiang Mai, Thailand, 11 cherished grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren throughout the United States and Canada, brother Fred (Sandy) Tascone of Muskegon, Michigan, sister Mary Rose Cuiffini of Bradford, brother in law Henry Peroginelli of Bradford, sister in law Kathe Tascone of Madison, Ohio and many loving nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by son John Tascone, father and mother Francis A. and Marie Assunta (Iaconis) Tascone, brother, Frank Tascone and sister, Marie Peroginelli.

Raised in Bradford, after military service in WW II, he returned to family and friends in Bradford then Erie to pursue his education. He was a university professor for 44 years and served on the faculty of Villa Maria and Gannon Colleges in Erie before assuming chairmanship of the department of Sociology at Loyola University in Montreal, Canada, where he lived until retirement in 1995.

Joseph served his country in the U.S. Army as part of the 42nd Field Artillery Battalion, part of the 4th Infantry Division, landing in France on D-Day plus 5 and participating in the march to St. Lo, where he was wounded and awarded two Purple Hearts, then continued service in England. Of those who didn’t return, he recently shared with a friend, “Those young boys lost it all, not just their lives but everything the Lord had in store for them, children, grandchildren – everything.”

Duty to country, commitment to excellence and principle, most of all Joseph is remembered for his lifelong devotion to the bonds of family. Loving and beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, Uncle Joe, be at peace. We honor you.
