Joseph Charles Vitello, aged 84, of Wheaton, Illinois, passed away on July 15, 2023. He was born on November 19, 1938 to Pauline (Valenti) and Joseph Vitello, residing in Chicago, Illinois, along with his siblings, Marie and Charles.

Joseph graduated from Austin High School in 1956 and he went on to earn his Associates degree to practice Electrical Engineering. Joseph supported our nation’s military as a member of the Army Reserve, beginning in 1961, until earning an Honorable Discharge in 1967.

On June 9, 1963, Joseph wed his beautiful wife, Mary Ann (deceased November 17, 2012). Joe and Mary Ann cultivated an abundance of colorful memories with endeared family and the dearest of life-long friends throughout their nearly 50 years of marriage. Together, they raised their daughters, Lisa and Gina, gifting them with love and valuable life experiences through their family’s journeys and challenges.

Joseph prioritized his family, and went to great lengths to care for, and provide for those he loved for many, many years. He adored his grandchildren, Jack (20), Lexton (18), Cameryn (16) and Brooke(15), and proudly celebrated their strengths and accomplishments every opportunity he had. Good cuisine, Jazz, and the furry members of the family held a special place in Joseph’s heart, and he was frequently up to attending local live Jazz concerts or meeting family and friends for a good meal. His absence will be felt deeply as he continues to be remembered and celebrated by his loved ones.

A private burial will be held with immediate family (Friday, July 21, 2023) and a Celebration of Life will be shared with additional family and friends at a later date to be shared. Joseph’s burial will be at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside, Illinois where he will be laid to rest next to his wife, Mary Ann.

In lieu of flowers, the family will be setting up a fund for charitable donations in the future that will be made available at the time of the Celebration of Life.
