Joe Lorusso was an amazing man. He came to this country from Italy with his wife and four young children to start a new life. He started his own business and was one of the hardest working men I had ever known. He had an incredible gift for gardening and even had his own vineyard! Every year he and his wife would make their own sauce and their own wine. He was also a bit of a musician as he played the harmonica. He was a wonderful father in law to me and a wonderful Nonno to my kids. He will be missed!

I don't know how I can articulate all Joe Lorusso meant to me. He taught me so much about having a great work ethic. He was the hardest worker I ever saw. Tireless. He cared deeply about doing things right. To the very best of his ability. He treated me so well. He was truly like a second Father to me. The world has lost a great man. Every year I garden, I think of Joe. I'm sure that will continue.
