He is also survived by many grandchildren, Lisa Thibodeau of Florida. Heather and Rob Pironti of MA, Cristal Gigowski of Chicago and Megan Gigowski and Jamie (Jordan) Davis of Michigan. And two great grandchildren, Devin Batra and Cali Davis. He is also survived by his siblings Richard (Judy) Green, Don (Bea) Green of Scituate MA and Paul Green, Diane Green, both in Florida. He was predeceased by siblings, William and Robert Green and Elaine (Green) Altieri. There was nothing more important to Joe than being with his kids. Whether it was spending the weekend on his boat, or just spending time visiting in their homes. He surely will be missed by his family!!
Joe proudly served in the US Navy in 1950 through 1953 on the crew of the US Ship Tweedy. Joe worked as a Brookline MA Police Officer in his younger years, then as a Teamster driving vehicle transport trucks for Anchor Motor Freight at GM in Framingham, MA. His passion was sailing. He was a licensed Captain, teaching many others how to sail in Newport RI. He sailed along the East Coast from Maine to Florida for many years. He enjoyed sailing so much he lived aboard his boat, the Offset for more than 25 years.
A special thank you to Milford Regional Hospital staff for their compassion, kindness and support during his stay at the hospital.
Services will be held at Consigli Ruggerio Funeral Home in Milford MA, at the convenience of the family, when this crazy world we are in settles down to some sense of normalcy!
