Pat, To you and all of the family our condolences. Take comfort that Joe is now at peace after a very difficult struggle. My memories from HPHS as a very young kid entering DX in the fall of ’58 and looking up to some good guys like Joe, Red, Sal, Bruce, Irv and a few others will always bring a smile to me. Knowing the Ciccaglione side as a classmate of Ginger and ‘closer firend’ of Toni’s also brings back pleasant memories. Be well.

It has been a long time since I’ve seen all of you, so wanted to drop a note with my deepest condolences.

Take Care

Pat and family: John Riccio, formerly of FDIC and Glastonbury. Worked with Joe in mid-60s thru early 70s. Visited you in Newington a couple of times, I believe. Admired Joe as a colleague and for his love of family, wanting to come off road so he could be with you more. He smartly left the rest of us on the road drinking and eating. Lenore’s and my thoughts with you all and our prayers for Joe. JR

Condolence from Rafael Oses on October 7th, 2008 12:00 am

Dear Pandiscia Family,

I was saddened to read the notice about Mr. Pandiscia. He was my first basketball coach when Chris and I were in 4th grade, and as I’ve always held affection for him and your whole family, I looked to him as a friendly, distant uncle.

I know he was proud of his family as well he should be; I send you all my deepest condolences and fond memories of my experience with him as well as with his own parents, Mrs. Pandiscia, Tony, Chris & Jay. Please stay strong, and be proud of the warm, kind, encouraging man he was.

Condolence from Brian J Woolf on October 7th, 2008 12:00 am

Dear Pat and the entire Pandiscia Family:
I learned today of the untimely passing of Joe. I got to know him before and during my tenure as Banking Commissioner 1980-1985 at the Connecticut Department of Banking where he served as one of my trusted senior managers and advisors.He was always a gentleman and I often looked to him for direction and advice, which he always gave freely with enthusiasm and dignity. I know of no one in the Department who ever had anything negative to say about him . He often traveled with me to conferences and other places both in and out of Connecticut and was always a wonderful companion.
Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences. He will be missed!
May his dear soul rest in peace!
Brian J Woolf, Esq
