LeRoy ~ Joseph Angelo Riggi, Jr., 40 of 47 Lake Street passed away unexpectedly at home the morning of June 3, 2022.
He proudly served in the Marine Corps and is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Jennifer M. Fields Riggi and their two children, Ayden and Cameron Riggi; his parents, Joe and Bonnie (Gebel) Riggi; his sister, Tina (Jamie) Clark and their two children, Peter and Abby Clark. He is also survived by his “like a brother best friend”, Philip (Cheryl) Caccamise, close friends and wood working extraordinaire, Raymond (Kathy) Yacuzzo. Joseph also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and great neighbors, Kevin (Becky) Kast.
Joseph was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Ken and Ceil Gebel and paternal grandmother, June Riggi.
Joe will always be remembered for being a United States Marine. He was an avid hunter and loved fishing. In recent years he had found an amazing talent and love for wood working and had created many beautiful pieces under the careful watch of his friend and teacher, Ray. Joe would help anyone who needed it and could fix anything better than most people. He loved watching his boys play sports and excelling at everything they tried. He was the quintessential proud dad at every event. He was the life of every gathering making everyone laugh and always doing some dumb thing just to prove he could. You could always find him near a cornhole board and he’d spot anyone points as long as they would just play with him. To say that he will be sorely missed would be a gigantic understatement. The hole he has left in so many people’s lives is massive and will never again be filled.
Family and friends may call on Friday, June 10 from 2 ~ 4 and 6 ~ 8 PM at the Falcone Family Funeral & Cremation Service Inc., 8700 Lake St. Rd. (Rt. 19), LeRoy. Services and interment in the Western NY National Cemetery will be private.
