LeRoy ~ Joseph S. “Sam” Misiti, age 85, passed away Tuesday evening (Dec. 26, 2023) at United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia.

     He was born August 17, 1938 in LeRoy, a son of the late Joseph and Maria Rosa D’Agostino Misiti.

     Sam graduated from LeRoy High School and proudly served in the US Army.  He retired from the LeRoy Machine Shop and was a proud member of St. Joseph’s Church in LeRoy.

     His favorite pastime was going for coffee with the guys or stopping at his nieces for a good Italian bite.  He would share stories about the family, the army and growing up on Pleasant Street.  He loved to box and was an avid fan.  He loved all sports, especially watching all the kids play and coach.  He loved his garden.  His hot peppers and Basilico were his favorites.  Nothing he enjoyed more than hot roasted peppers and pasta sugo.  His Italian heritage, faith and family were the center of his life.  His legacy will be how he loved and was loved by so many.

     Sam was deeply devoted to his wife of 51 years, Maureen Kleps Misiti and is also survived by his sister-in-law, Angie Misiti; several cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces & nephews and great-great-nieces & nephews, who were like children to him and they idolized him; his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, along with many longtime friends, who he considered family, relatives in Italy and his “Pleasant Street Family”.

     In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters and brothers; Frances (Joseph) Rapone, Carmella (Robert) Humphrey, Vito (Louise) Misiti, Rose (Doug) Haskin and Vincent Misiti; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Albert and Betty Kleps, four brothers-in-law and one sister-in-law.
