Joe was such a sweet soul. I was blessed to be his neighbor my whole life and could not have asked for a better neighbor. Joe and Norma were always so kind to my family and I and am so thankful to have shared many great stories with them. My condolences to the Leone family during this difficult time.

Joe has been my parent's next door neighbor for 27 years. Growing up, I always remember waving at him in the driveway when I was on my way to school in Crown Point or when I would come home to visit my parents. Joe and Norma were always so kind to my family and I. We would spend time chatting in his driveway, sitting on my parent's back patio or stopping by his house occasionally. I always enjoyed the Christmas lights he put outside as well. Joe always had the best stories and I will miss seeing him during my visits home. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. I'm thankful that I had a chance to know Joe and that my parents had Joe & Norma as neighbors and friends. They were truly the best.

Sandi, So sorry for your family’s loss. He was a wonderful, sweet man. I always enjoyed talking with him.
Ken Christy left a message on January 13, 2022:
The first time I met Joe, I knew that we would be lifelong friends. He and Norma literally became my Godparents. Knowing that I had my own Italian Godfather was a standing joke. It was such a joy and honor to call him friend and be his friend. He will forever be thought of as one of the best, caring and loving individuals I have ever been gifted to have. Rest In Peace my FRIEND, until we meet again.
Mark & Lindsay Bates left a message on January 13, 2022:
We are saddened to learn of the passing of Joe. He was our next door neighbor for the last 27 years. We enjoyed our conversations sitting by his garage or on our back patio. His sense of humor always made us laugh and the memories will last forever. His homemade wine and figs were staples of Joe Leone. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Leone Family. May God provide comfort and healing during this time of sorrow. He is now with his Norma and while we miss him on this earth, he will live into eternity in the hands of God. Peace be with you ….. God Bless.
Laura Christy left a message on January 13, 2022:
There are not enough words to describe Joe. He was the most kind human being on this earth. The love he felt for his family and friends was undeniable. When we were all together, the laughs would start and never ended until we parted. I will miss that smile, that laugh and that friendship but will be forever thankful for having him in my life. May God hold you in his loving arms.

You will always be in our hearts.
