Obituary of Joseph Edward Fischer
Joseph “Joe” Fischer, 61, originally of Manalapan, NJ passed away peacefully at his home in Port Richey, Florida on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.
He worked in New York City for many years and helped to build the World Trade Center Complex, among other projects. One of his most enduring qualities was singing his rendition of Louis Armstrong’s, “What a Wonderful World”. He could belt it out just as good as the legendary Armstrong. Joe’s laugh could wake up any room and he enjoyed being with his family and friends.
Joe was predeceased by his sister Alice, and his parents, William, and Margaret Fischer, all of Staten Island, New York. He is survived by his five brothers, Bill, Bob (Susan) Dave, Tom (Ahava), and Mike (Cathy). He is also survived by two nieces, Christiana (Bryan) and Jessica, two nephews, Kendrick and Nick and a grand-niece, Sofia. He was also known and loved as Uncle Joe to the Melillo and Dantone families and many others. Joe had a huge heart and was known to help and support people in need as he did for his last few years in Florida.
Joe will be buried at St Peters Cemetery in Staten Island, New York. The wake will be on Thursday, July 21 2022, from 2 to 4 pm and from 7 to 9 pm at Freeman’s Funeral Home in Manalapan, NJ. Funeral services are set for 10:30am on July 22, 2022, at St Robert’s Catholic Church in Freehold, NJ. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please make donations to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
