Joseph Cupo passed away peacefully after a short illness on October 16th, 2019.   Joseph was born and raised in Newark NJ.  He was the youngest of 8 children born to Nunziato  and Cristina Cupo.  He was predeceased by his father Nunziato, his mother Cristina, his brother Peter, his sisters Marie, Christine and Mildred, and grandson Nicholas.

Joe loved going to Atlantic City and playing table games.  He enjoyed watching and wagering on thoroughbred horse racing with family and friends.  He liked doing word search puzzles and was an avid reader (especially the racing forms).
