Joseph Steven D' Ascoli

On May 22, 2017, Joseph Steven D’Ascoli, 38, touched the face of God.


He fiercely loved so many: His wife Colleen and her children, his grandparents, Lacy and Phyllis Stevens and Joseph and Marie D’Ascoli and his parents, Tino and Peggy D’Ascoli. His parents and grandparent’s gifts and talents were so evident in him, as was their love of, and commitment to, family. He had the gift of storytelling, humor and grit of his father, Tino, and the kindness and compassion of his mother, Peggy. He had two brothers, Robert and Steven D’Ascoli, that he greatly loved, respected (and according to stories), attempted to dominate growing up. His sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and their children meant everything to him, and his Godson held a special place in his heart.


He excelled in working on projects with his hands in harsh conditions, usually with a nosey chicken breathing down his neck. He was--for a minute--stubborn, impatient and the youngest codger I have ever met. And then at once contrite and laughing, singing and whistling again.


He never achieved the redneck persona he sought--probably due to his Westchester County, NY upbringing—although we applaud his efforts with the camo hats, guns and misc. flannel. It is hard to pull off redneck with perfect manners, diction and a good set of teeth, Joey.


He was Joseph, Joe, Joey--loyal and loving husband, son, grandson, brother, uncle, cousin, Godfather, friend, leader, mentor, saved by grace, self-described ‘petty dabbler’, occasional codger, story teller and the truest friend to all. He was a bright light; even brighter now.


See you soon, Joey.


“Every good and perfect gift is from above.”

James 1:17


A Memorial Service will be held at New Hope Baptist Church in Sanford, NC, at 4 PM on Saturday, May 27, 2017

May you find comfort and strength in knowing that God loves you and he cares for you, through talking to him in prayer, and from reading his inspired Word the Bible". Psalm 36:7 says: "How precious your loyal love is, O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge". 1 Peter 5:7 "Throw all your anxiety (cares, worries) on him, because he cares for you". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember Jehovah God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 55:22; 1 John 4:9:19) jw.org

I will always remember Joe for his hilarious sense of humor especially during those High School baseball days. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
