Joseph J. Sweet, 62, of 565 Bolivar Drive passed away Friday, December 2nd, 2011, in Veterans Hospital in Pittsburgh, after a long and courageous battle with MDS, surrounded by his loving family.

He was a member of the American Legion and the VFW. He enjoyed watching his favorite NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon, and the Miami Dolphins. He loved traveling with his wife, but most of all spending time with his family. He will be fondly remembered for his quick wit, humor and always putting a smile on everyone's face.
