August 9, 1962 - September 7, 2021
Joseph Robert “Joe/Joey” Satta, 59, of Middletown, DE, passed away September 7th, 2021.
Born in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY on August 9th, 1962, he was the youngest son of the late Peter and Evelyn (Saukas) Satta. Joe worked in banking at HSBC for 30+ years.
In his spare time, Joe enjoyed traveling, going on adventures, and relaxing by the pool. He could always be found singing, especially to classic rock and roll. Joe was the king of corny “dad” jokes, and could always get a laugh or an eye-roll with his sense of humor. An avid football fan, he loved to watch college football, reminiscing on his days playing and coaching in Greenpoint. The holiday season was his favorite time of year. He believed in the magic of Christmas and spread joy by dressing up as Santa for several events. Above all, he will be remembered as a devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, and dear friend to many.
In addition to his parents, Joe was preceded in death by his brother, Peter and nephew, Jeffery. He is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Deborah (Egidio) Satta; children, Kevin and Katie; siblings, Jeffery, Timothy, and Kathy; and many nieces and nephews.
