Joseph “Joe Joe” M. Talamonti of Kennett Square

Joseph “Joe Joe” M. Talamonti, 70, of Kennett Square, died Tuesday, Aug. 8, at Pocopson Home in West Chester.

Joseph M. Talamonti

Born in Wilmington, he was a son of the late Giuseppe and the late Frances (DiTomasso) Talamonti.

Joe Joe was an Inspector in the aviation industry for many years. He thoroughly enjoyed playing golf with his family and friends, especially getting great pleasure from his trips to Myrtle Beach every year with his buddies. He played in several softball leagues in the Downingtown and Kennett Square areas, and became a regular at the wine cellar for a taste or two, joining in the camaraderie with old and dear friends. In his spare time, Joe was also a bartender in the Downingtown area and at the Red Clay Room in Kennett Square. Joe loved music, which was apparent from his extensive record collection and his knowledge of the title, artist and year the record was introduced.

Joe-Joe’s sense of humor and library of “one-liners” will be missed.

He was a member of the Kennett Square Fire Company and the Italian American Club.

Survivors include one daughter, Frances Funderburg and her husband John of Essington; one brother, Tony Talamonti of Kennett Square; one sister, Donna Miller and her husband Dan of Kennett Square; one granddaughter, Shelby and many cousins, nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by a brother Luigi.
