Al and I will miss Uncle Joe and his vivid story-telling of a life well-lived, lots of adventures, devotion to family, the boatload of South Philly rolls that made their way to every Loddo reunion, pasta suppers in his favorite South Philly restaurants, his deft and skillful tailoring on many a treasured garment. Even at his 100th birthday breakfast/lunch, as hampered as he was by his illness and stroke, he smiled, greeted everyone, ate heartily and liked being the center of attention. But may we offer a correction? His long-time companion Bertha doesn't survive him (unless reincarnation actually does happen!) but pre-deceased him some years back. If there's a heaven, Uncle Joe has probably already found his way to the first tee on the golf course. We'll miss him.

Uncle Joe, making it to 100 like a true Sardinian. I still remember the scrumptious cheese he would bring to family gatherings. Stinky cheese is the best cheese. My husband still wears a sweater that Uncle Joe gave him. What a great way to remember our Uncle Joe.

Uncle Joe...the quietest of the large Loddo Clan, was a favorite for his gentleness and kindness. I remember him coming to our home from the time I was a toddler. Loved you then and still love you Uncle Joe. RIP Annie

Everyday since I met him he would
Love to tell war stories about being in Iceland in World War 2. About how much he hated muten ( which I think is sheep meat) and Brussel sprouts because they fed them that a lot.
He became post tailor for his unit and made more than everyone else was making in a month. He never worked on a suit before but his Sargent asked him to see what he could do and it came out perfect ! Joe was hired as post tailor.
He also got out of being there for revelry and other duties . He sent all his money home to his parents except 10 a month.
He also hated taking showers there because they piped in the water from a hot spring loaded with colloidal silver and he never felt clean.
I said “you were taking a shower in the fountain of youth ! That’s why he made it to 100. “
The good old days that’s what he still remembered. Not like they’re trying to make this country into today .
Salt of the earth. That’s Joe ! I’ll miss my morning eggs and talks with him. RIP Joe I know you’re not only walking around but dancing around ! Love your favorite aid Stephanie
