Joseph C. Saporito, 73 of Wayne passed away on Wednesday, August 14, 2019. Born in Passaic, the son of Michele and Christina (Coschignano) Saporito, he grew up in Nutley and lived in Clifton for 48 years prior to moving to Wayne 2 years ago.
He retired from the United States Postal Service Lyndhurst Office as a manager. After his retirement he worked as a limousine driver.
Joseph is survived by his beloved wife, Donna (Cundari) Saporito; 2 children, Maria Kinney and her husband, Edward and Joseph C. Saporito, Jr. and his wife, Kathleen; 5 grandchildren, Andrew, Joseph, James, Michael and Josephine; his sister, Jennie Casiello and his brother, Michael Saporito. Along with his parents, he was also predeceased by his sister, Mary “Pat” Monto and his brother, Constantino Saporito.
An avid motorcyclist and classic car enthusiast, Joe's love of his Corvette and Harley-Davidson was surpassed only by his love for his family - especially his grandchildren who will miss spending summers with him in the pool at his beach house down the shore.
