Joseph Giglio Obituary

On October 4, 2023, Joe Giglio, age 82, of York, PA, formerly of Pittsburgh, died suddenly at home. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, JoAnn Giglio; his children, Joseph C. Giglio, Christine Giglio, Jane Bailey and her husband Steve, and Maureen Honeychuck and her husband Joe; brother, Michael A. Giglio and his wife Eileen; mother-in-law, Jane Connolly; former daughter-in-law Holly Giglio and former son-in-law Davidson Jones. He was Papa Joe to 12 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, plus two not yet born but already loved. He was preceded in death by his parents Michael and Kathryn (Lawler) Giglio, and two children, Katie and Michael Giglio. Joe will be missed by a huge extended family of in-laws who long ago ceased to be in-laws and just became his family. He had many long friendships that also merged into family over the years.

Joe spent his professional career at Westinghouse and Pittsburgh Materials Technology where his work and his colleagues were almost as important to him as his family. Joe graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, with an engineering degree and from the University of Pittsburgh with an MBA. 

He was passionate about science and nature. He enticed many young people to enter STEM careers and join him in planting trees. Joe often hit many of his golf balls into the woods just to walk among the trees. (At least that was his story!) He was an emeritus board member of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.

Joe was delighted by babies and prided himself on his ability to soothe any crying baby who needed to be held and walked.

To honor Joe, the family requests you to smile at a baby or plant a tree.

Joe was laid to rest privately at Penn Forest Natural Burial Park in Verona.
