Joseph Conti Jr. of Clark, New Jersey passed away from complications related to COVID-19 on Monday, April 13, 2020 at JFK Medical Center in Edison, N.J. He was 73 years old.
He was the beloved husband, for 33 years, of Ellen Irene Conti (Koulouthros), cherished father of Jennifer Michelle Conti, Steven Conti, and Joseph Conti, and grandfather of 2.
Joseph proudly served in the United States Army from 1966 to 1968. Upon being honorably discharged in July of 1968, he was employed by Union County College as an auto-mechanics instructor. He worked in the automotive/trucking industry for over 30 years and established many great relationships with his customers and employers.
Throughout the years, his passions included playing golf, going to the shooting range, and riding and repairing motorcycles. As a life-long dog owner, Joseph adored spending time with his daughter’s Pomeranian, Hailey. He was a proud member of the American Legion and served as their Chief Financial Officer. His wittiness and sense of humor will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
