Jun 24, 2024 – With heavy hearts, we mourn the sudden and untimely passing of Joseph DeCecco, a cherished member of our Kenmore community. Joe leaves behind a legacy that will forever be etched in our hearts and minds.

Joe was more than a village trustee; he was a beacon of compassion and dedication. His unwavering commitment to serving our community was matched only by his warmth and infectious enthusiasm for making Kenmore a better place for all. As a trustee, he worked tirelessly to advocate for our interests, always putting the needs of the community first.

Beyond his public service, Joe was a beloved son, brother, uncle, and devoted teacher for 23 years. His impact extended far beyond the walls of the classroom; he touched countless lives with his wisdom, kindness, and genuine care for his students.

Joe’s presence illuminated every room he entered, his smile a personification of hope and positivity. Whether discussing policy at a village meeting or sharing a laugh with friends on the golf course and local tavern, Joe’s genuine nature and compassionate spirit left an indelible mark on all who knew him.

As we come together to mourn his loss, let us also celebrate the profound impact Joe had on each of us and our community. His legacy of service, kindness, and dedication will continue to inspire us for years to come.

To his family and loved ones, we extend our deepest condolences and offer our unwavering support during this difficult time. Joe DeCecco’s memory will forever remain in our hearts, guiding us as we strive to honor his legacy in everything we do.

Rest in peace, Joe, knowing that your contributions to Kenmore will never be forgotten. Your spirit will continue to live on in the fabric of our community, a testament to a life well-lived and a heart that touched so many.
