Obituary of Joseph Lagana

Please share a memory of Joseph to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Joseph “Pino” Lagana of Cortlandt Manor, New York passed away on December 7th at the age of 83. 

Born October 5, 1940, to Brigida and Angelo Lagana in Reggio Calabria, Italy, and married Marian Leonardi in 1969. 

Joseph was predeceased by his sister Maddalena and survived by his wife, brother Rocco (Gemma), sons Angelo (Celeste) and Joseph (Maria), and daughter Regina (Adam). 

He was a devoted father, grandfather (Nonno), and great-grandfather.

Joseph served in the Italian Army and moved to America in his twenties, where he met Marian in the Bronx.  As a highly skilled carpenter, he tirelessly worked to provide for his family, but he always made sure to take time to be with his children. 

Joseph had a love for gardening, wine-making, and Italian soccer. He was dedicated to the Catholic Church (Graymoor) where he sang in the choir for many years and gained many lifelong friends.

His sense of humor is something that will be missed by all.

In lieu of flowers donations in his memory can be made to Graymoor-The Holy Mountain
