So many memories of Joe, He was truly one of a kind, always seemed to enjoy himself and was always giving me a hard time from the early days of the store downtown, at the new store, at a luau in Hawaii and right up to the last time I saw him at the Apple Blossom Mall with Norma and some of the grandkids. I will miss ya Joe! My deepest condolences to Norma, Debbie, Ronnie, Tommy and the entire extended family. Joe was one of the good guys

We are so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. I remember how we carpooled our kids to Sacred Heart Academy when we first moved to Winchester in the late 70's. Joe always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. He will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

His contagious laugh, his smile that would light up the room, and of course, that look he gave you over his glasses. I great man that will sadly be missed. Prayers to all the family, friends and co-workers who had the honor of knowing Joe.

Dear Norma and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. We are sorry we cannot be with you tomorrow, but we will be with you in spirit. Our cousin, Joe,was a warm, funny, loving, hardworking and fun-loving person. But most importantly, he was a loving husband and father and an incredible role model for his children. We will miss him tremendously. Dave and I looked forward to Norma and Joe's camping trips to Florida, as that meant a mini reunion with them. Very nice times. Sending you all our deepest condolences and prayers that sweet memories will sustain you in the future. Linda and Maria

Pedro was an an inspiration to me. I started working for him at the Store when I turned 15. Through those years he was a wonderful role model to me and his zest for life and happiness was Contagious. I have so many wonderful memories. I Love the Ambrogi family and my heart goes out to Debbie, Tommy, Ronnie and Norma and family as well as the extended family of employees that have had the good fortune to be apart of the Ambrogi family over the generations. May God comfort you in this time.
