Life Legacy

Joseph Victor Pison of Wallingford died Monday, Aug. 8, 2011, following a brief illness, at Midstate Medical Center, his daughters by his side. He was 83.

Joe was born in Meriden on June 30, 1928, the youngest child of Giuseppina (Fontanella) and Vittorio Pison. He graduated from Meriden High School and Wilcox Technical School in Meriden, and went on to serve in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. He owned a tool and die business, Titan Industries, in Wallingford. After he retired and sold the business he worked for Quest Laboratories.

Joe was devoted to his family, particularly his wife, Marion (Jenkins), whom he married Aug. 11, 1951, and who predeceased him in July 2010. Today would have been their 60th anniversary.

Joe followed national politics with keen – and vocal -- interest and loved his perennial flowerbeds, which always drew admiration. He never missed an opportunity to complete a crossword puzzle, always in ink.

He was predeceased by his wife; his sister, Edna Pison; and his brother, Robert Pison.

He is survived by his three daughters, Gail Montany and husband Eugene of Snowmass, Colo., Debra Kaczynski and husband Robert of South Windsor, and Vicki Pinto of Wallingford; seven grandchildren; and a newborn great-grandson.

All who knew Joe are welcome to greet the family and share memories Saturday, Aug. 13, 1-3 p.m., at Brothers Restaurant, 33 N. Cherry St., Wallingford. A graveside service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested a donation be made in Joe’s memory to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, 875 North Randolph Street, suite 225, Arlington, VA 22203.
