Joseph Marciona of Pelham, New York passed away on July 5th 2023. He was 90 years old. Born in Harlem to Anthony and Concetta Marciona, Joseph was the third of four children. Joseph was raised in Harlem New York, where he attended St Cecilia's Elementary School, before graduating from PS-106 High School. Joseph boxed and fenced throughout his high school years. 

After graduating from high school, Joseph enlisted as a medic in the army. He married his high school sweetheart, Louise Smedile in 1954. He worked at Alfred E. Smith vocational school teaching automobile mechanics and math, where he also coached the fencing team.  Joseph and Louise lived in the Bronx, before moving to Pelham with their children in 1971. In his spare time, he performed with the local community theatres and sang with New Rochelle Opera. He was the inspiration for his children, Anthony and Suzan, to pursue professional careers in show biz.

Happily, he achieved his greatest dream of opal mining in Australia
