Joseph Salvatore Colonna

Jul 15, 1944 - Feb 20, 2024

location-icon

Cape Coral, FL

Joseph Salvatore Colonna, known affectionately to family and friends as Joseph, passed away peacefully on February 20, 2024, in Cape Coral, following complications from a stroke. He was born on July 15, 1944, in New York, a city that imbued in him a spirited and resilient character. Joseph, a proud New Yorker through and through, carried with him the vibrant energy of the city throughout his life. After completing his education in high school, he dedicated himself to a career of service, working for the Suffolk County Police Department. His commitment to the community and his work's impact were deeply felt and will be remembered by all those who had the privilege of knowing him professionally.  Joseph was a man of many passions. He had an enduring love for old classic cars and could often be found in his garage tinkering under the hood of a vintage automobile, a hobby that provided him with endless joy and satisfaction. His love for Harley Davidsons was equally known, a testament to his sense of adventure and freedom, traits that he carried with him both in his work and personal life. Though Joseph’s own family tree has seen some branches fall with the sad losses of his beloved wife, Andrea Colonna, and cherished daughter, Yvette Colonna, his legacy continues to flourish through his surviving family. His daughter, Genean Clark, and son-in-law, David Clark, remember him offering wisdom and strength. His spirit of joy and adventure lives on in his grandchildren, Austin Shelton and Reese Wadas, who will carry forward his love for life's simple pleasures. Joseph's sister, Peggy Barry, brother-in-law, Brian Barry, and nephew, Drew Barry, will hold dear the memories of his laughter and the stories that only Joseph could tell, stories that brought the family history to life and will continue to do so for generations. His great-grandsons, Lucas Shelton and Justin Shelton, though they knew him for a shorter time, will know their great-grandfather through the many tales and anecdotes that are his legacy.  Joseph's life was a tapestry of dedication, passion, and love—a love that extended beyond his family to encompass his friends, colleagues, and community. His was a life lived with purpose, a life that touched others in profound and lasting ways. His absence will be felt deeply, but the memory of his unwavering spirit will continue to inspire those who knew him. As we bid farewell to Joseph Salvatore Colonna, we celebrate a life well-lived, a life that exemplified service, passion, and family. His story does not end with his passing but continues in the hearts and minds of those who loved him, a narrative of a life that made a difference, a life that mattered. In honoring Joseph's memory, we acknowledge the end of an era and the passing of a man who was so much to so many. His was a life that will not be forgotten, for his was a presence that left an indelible mark on the world. Joseph Salvatore Colonna, a beloved figure, a protector, a hobbyist, a storyteller, a family man—may he rest in peace knowing he was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
