Joseph Miletto

Date of Death: 
March 21st, 2021

On Sunday, March 21, 2021, Joseph Miletto, loving husband, father, father-in-law, son, son-in-law, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend, passed suddenly yet peacefully, in his family home at the age of 62. Joseph was born in Philadelphia, PA on January 2, 1959 to Donato and Philomena. He grew up in North East Philadelphia and was proud to have graduated from Father Judge High School in 1977. On October 29, 1988, he married his loving wife, Lisa Miletto (nee Garbarino) of over 32 years. Together, they moved to Warrington, where they were blessed with their neighborhood family, and raised three daughters, Ashley, Brittany, and Emily — Joe’s pride and joy. Joseph was preceded in death by his father, Donato, his mother-in-law, Gloria, and his sister-in-law, Michele. He is survived by his wife, Lisa, his daughters Ashley (Craig), Brittany (Joe), and Emily, his mother, Philomena, father-in-law, Leonard, sister, Carmelina (Raymond), and his nieces, Meghan and Kimberly, as well as many beloved friends and family members. His family can find peace knowing that Joseph is in a better place, in heaven, reunited with his father, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law. Joe loved spending time with his family - going on coffee dates with his daughters, going on walks at Peace Valley Park, New Hope, and Lambertville with his girls, drinking wine or having a beer with his daughters and friends, watching Schitt’s Creek with Brittany, buying funny T-Shirts with Emily, enjoying a cup of coffee before work with Lisa, and talking to Ashley on the phone in the morning on their ways to work. He was an active member in each of his family members’ lives - calling daily to see how they were doing and always reminding them how of much he loved them and how special they were to him. Joe was known for cooking delicious meals and was proud of his Italian heritage. He enjoyed watching Philadelphia sports, reading, and doing projects around the house. He was a fan of history, The Three Stooges, Billy Joel, making others laugh, and having dance parties with his daughters and wife at their home. Joe loved telling stories and was a great story-teller. He was a hard worker, who always put his family first, and sacrificed to give his family the best. He was strong in his faith and the most caring, thoughtful, and generous man. He was a best friend to many, including his daughters and wife, and anyone who knew him was blessed just to have him in their lives. He will be greatly missed, but we know he will forever be in our hearts. A visitation will be held for family and friends on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 9:30am-10:30am, followed by a funeral mass at 10:30am at Saint Robert Bellarmine Church (856 Euclid Ave. Warrington, PA 18976). Internment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Joseph’s memory to Father Judge High School (Philadelphia, PA).

Memories and Condolences

Got to know Joe from working in Inspection at Milton Roy Co. we became good friends and my wife and I had the pleasure of going to dinner with Joe and his lovely wife Lisa a couple of times. Joe and I got along great and had many good laughs together. I cherish the time we spent together and I will miss our many conversations and texts. He always talked about his wife Lisa and his beautiful three daughters and his Mother. My deepest condolences to his wife Lisa and his three daughters Ashley, Brittany, Emily and his Mother.
Joe..It was a Pleasure being your friend. Rest in peace. I will never forget all the laughter and stories you shared with us at work. You will be missed! You always put your family first and I always respected that. My sincere condolances to your beautiful family.
Joe will be missed dearly. I am thankful I first got to meet him down the shore with his beautiful family, and continued to see him during hours long dinner at Mommoms. Talking Philadelphia sports or figuring out who was going to finish the mound of chicken cutlets and raviolis on the table. I was blessed to know him. -John Rice
Joe, your Elvis Costello dance moves were the best! You always made me laugh at Milton Roy. Rest In Peace my friend.
I was deeply saddened hearing of Joes passing as I arrived at work. He will be greatly missed by those whose path he crossed. My sincerest condolences to his wife and daughters. Rest in peace my friend till our paths cross again.
Worked with Joe at Milton Roy. There wasn't a day that went by that he did not have a story or something funny to say to brighten the day. It was a pleasure working with him, and he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Rest in peace Joe, till we meet again.
Worked with Joe at Milton Roy and it was always a pleasure! From the day I told him that I was also an Italian citizen, he would always shake his head and wave a finger in disbelief that I had never been to Italy! That’s another story. His positive approach to issues and his kindness and vast knowledge of his job were evident. He will be missed! Rest in peace Joe!
It was always fun when Joe would stop by my cubicle. Our conversation about work would usually turn to something more important like recipes for spaghetti bolognese or reciting line from our favorite mafia movies. Joe was a big fan of The Godfather. I will truly miss Joe. He added that element of friendship at work which is important and rare.
I knew that when I was in Mr. Miletto’s presence, I would always have a good laugh. To a father that treated me like his own and always made me feel welcome in his home. I truly cherish the time that I got to sit with him, drink some coffee, and listen to his always entertaining stories. You raised a beautiful family.
Worked with Joe on a daily basis when I was with Milton Roy, I really enjoyed the passing conversations about anything and everything non-work related when I stopped by his station. Sad to hear the news, thoughts out to friends and family. Rest in peace Joe.
As many people who knew and spoke of him, he was one of the "GOOD" ones! I want to thank Joe's family for sharing him with the rest of us.
My heartfelt condolences to Joe's beloved mother, wife, son-in-law and beautiful daughters.I had the pleasure of working with Joe at Milton Roy since 2017. He was well liked by a multitude of people from every department.He always shared his knowledge with a good story to go with it. Joe did interact well with Engineering and Manufacturing groups. Joe had trained many interns during his days at Milton Roy. One such intern, Tom Oropeza joins me to extend his heartfelt condolences to the bereaving family. May Almighty GOD comfort all the beloved ones.
Sorry for your loss ,my condolences to Joe's family and all who knew him.
I wish I could have been back home to say goodbye and share my many memories of growing up next door to Mr.Miletto. He was always one of my favorite neighbors- kind, goofy (in the best of ways!), and always up for chatting outside on a nice day. I will always remember him with his family and friends hanging out with a relaxing beer on summer evenings, and the delicious Italian meals he used to make when I would stay for dinner with Ashley as kids. He was very loved and will be very missed. Sending my thoughts and love to Mrs.Miletto, Ashley, Brittany, and Emily from Chicago <3
Sorry for the family loss.
I just learned today that Joe passed away. I worked with him at NRC starting in Sept 1980. We started two weeks apart until he left and then company closed. He had a beautiful family and I know he loved them so very much. I am saddened by his passing. Bless his beautiful family.
