Obituary of Joseph A. Bissanti

Barre, New York. Passed away April 13, 2021 at the age of 67. Predeceased by father Alfio Romeo Bissanti, bonus father John Paul Vyrvoss, mother Gladys May Earle Bissanti Vyrvoss, and sister Orry (Dean) Schermerhorn.  Joe is survived by his devoted and caregiving wife of 25 years, Tammy Moyer Bissanti, children Lynnette (Brian), Joe Jr. (Ellen), Tony (Brooke), Vincent, Michael, Selene, Joshua (Kristina), Katrina (Bumpy), and Spencer. Joe’s surviving brothers and sisters are Vincent (Rosalie) Bissanti, Linda (John) Lotze, Claudette (Bill) Roth, Johnny (Michelle) Bissanti, Rosie (Chuck) Shannon, Anthony (Linda) Vyrvoss. Grandchildren, Liberty, Lily, Adrianna, Caleb, Hayley, Colin, Joey III, Billy Jean, Jordan, Trevor, Trey, JaQuess, Ugene, Jasmin, Kiara, Martin, Austin, Kamin and 6 great grandchildren. 

Joe will be remembered as a man with great spirit and love for his family. He enjoyed his music and cars and figuring out things on his own. Always ready to lend a helping hand when asked. Quick with a smile and a laugh even at his own expense. He passed peacefully surrounded by family after a painful short battle with cancer. He is already missed and will be rememberedacross generations to come. There will be a family gathering for a celebration of life later this summer where stories will be told, laughs will be had, music will be played and we may even work on a Mopar product or two.

Joe's arrangements have been entrusted to the Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc. Holley, NY.
