Joseph Barattucci

Joe Barattucci, 65, of Waverly passed away on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre surrounded by his family.

He was predeceased by his parents, Guido and Philomena Barattucci of Scotch Plains, NJ.

Joe is survived by his wife, Tammy Barattucci of Waverly, daughters, Danielle (Kevin) Brunk of Chemung and Christina (Jason Tedesco) Roberts of Owego; sister, Susan (John) Bottles of Barnegat, NJ; brother, John Barattucci of Myrtle Beach, SC; nephew, Michael (Heather) Bottles; niece, Lisa (Rusty) Calicchio of Belle Meade, NJ; grandchildren, Karson and Parker Brunk and Paige and Peyton Deprospero; and his four legged companion, Sophia.

Joe was first diagnosed with Kidney Cancer back in 1992.  For the past 10 years he fought long and hard to overcome many obstacles.  We were blessed to have him with us for as long as we did.

Joe enjoyed golf and fishing, which he did a lot with his brother, John.  He also enjoyed packing a picnic and spending the day at the Zoo.  It really didn’t matter what he was doing, as long as he was doing it with his family.

Joe enjoyed making and passing on family traditions.  His favorite was making homemade sauce and homemade pasta for Sunday dinner and eating with the family.  Something we will cherish forever.  Joe had a great sense of humor and could lighten any mood.  He was an awesome husband, father, and Papa Joe (grandfather).  He was great friend and so much more.

He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

At Joe’s request, there will be no formal services, instead a Celebration of Joe’s Life will be held for his immediate family.  Memorial donations may be made in Joe’s name to the National Kidney Foundation or the American Cancer Society.  Those wishing to send a message of sympathy to Joe’s family may visit our Facebook page or in “Obituaries” at

From: Cameron Clements
I will always have great memories of the years working with Joe.  Besides being an expert at what he did, his ability to connect with people always impressed me.  Also enjoyed some good phone calls during the winter months after he moved from Myrtle Beach, SC to NY.  We would always touch base when they got a heavy snow to share how warm Charleston SC was.  Joe was a great person and I will miss him.

I'd like to send my Condolences to Joe's family. I have not seen Joe in probably 30 years but he and my father were close friends when my sister and I were little. We loved him, and he loved to entertain us by telling us funny stories and juggling. He was so funny. You have my deepest sympathy. Tony Mortarulo

To know Joe is to love Joe! All of his friends back in Scotch Plains send their sincere condolences. Joe was a great friend to all of us and will be missed. Joe and Art C. were the two best bartenders ever!  Joe was one hell of a ballplayer too! Many laughs and good times! Rest in peace my friend.

Dear Barrattuci family, I was very saddened to read about Joes passing.  My brothers and I grew up with Joe and his family.  They lived around the corner from us.  Our parents Joe and Josey were best friends with Joes parents.  Susan and I were friends also growing up  We shared many happy days together   our parents were in a club together with all of their friends My brother played baseball with him almost everyday in the summer months.  His mother could never grow grass where all the kids would meet everyday  May he rest in peace now with his mother and father   

From: Randy Hauser
I grew up one block over from Joe, on Myrtle Avenue, in Scotch Plains, NJ. I was friends with Joe's kid brother, John. I admired both Joe's athletic skill (he was a baseball and football starter in high school), and his humble, soft spoken ways. No doubt, Joe will be missed by friends and family.

From: The Janci Boys
Dear Susan and John,
We were so saddened to hear of Joe’s passing.  We have many fond memories of our neighborhood and growing up in Scotch Plains. From wiffle ball in the street and football on the front lawn not to mention Joe’s drumming in our basement band. I hope you will find comfort In recalling happy times with Joe. Keeping you in our prayers.
Jack, Joe and Jimmy Janci
