Joseph W. Miele, entered into eternal rest on May 21, 2022 at Westchester Medical Center surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with leukemia. He was 59 years young.
He was born Oct. 3, 1962 in Newburgh, NY, to the late Joseph P. Miele and Judith (DeWitt) Miele.
He married Lisa Vradenburgh of Newburgh, NY, on June 1, 1985 and with her welcomed their sons, Anthony David and Nicholas Joseph Miele.
After high school he began his career as a Computer Operations and Change Manager with UPS in Mahwah, NJ. He was a dedicated employee for over 30 years until his retirement.
Joe would always keep us entertained with each new hobby he got involved with. From salt water tanks, telescopes, wood ship models, building high tech computers and wood building. As soon as he had accomplished it…onto the next. He loved the challenge of it all and was always learning. But Joe’s favorite was when he hung out with his granddaughter Victoria, the LOVE of his life.
He is survived by his wife Lisa Miele, at home, granddaughter Victoria Reyes Miele of Beacon, NY, his mother Judith Miele, of The Villages, FL, brother David (Ann) Miele of Queensbury, NY, sister Diane (Tom) Byrnes of The Villages, FL and many cousins, nieces and friends.
He was predeceased by his father Joseph P. Miele, along with his sons Anthony David Miele and Nicholas Joseph Miele.
