this posted in 2012 on my “old blog” but it is still part of me today. Heading out this weekend to continue spreading Uncle Joe’s Stuff and tell his story …
This is my Uncle Joe, and The Muppets, he died in 2002. His obit says … ” Joseph “JJ” DeSanto would say he was a carpenter when in fact he was a Master Craftsman. “
We, my brother & I, would say that he was a son, brother, husband, father, step-father, uncle and our GREAT Uncle … he was a master carpenter, set builder, volunteer, FISHERMAN, a picker, and probably a little bit of a hoarder … but man did he hoard some great stuff!
My brother inherited all of Uncle Joe’s stuff … I think the final count was 4 or 5 store rooms of tools, props, books, odds, ends, bits & pieces … He never slowed down, and right up until the end he was collecting, building, volunteering at The Irvington Town Hall Theater, fishing, traveling, and smiling!
