Joseph J. Fortunato 93 and a member of St. Patrick’s Parish for 52 years died on October 12, 2016.

Joe had made 24 retreats with the St. Patrick and Manhattan College retreat groups.  You ask how did he get into the EMM picture….well he was walking near us he stopped and we asked him to join us for the picture. This quiet spiritual man had a past which he would talk about from time to time in the small group discussion after each presentation.  On “D” day he landed on Omaha Beach he shared how his life was spared by Jesus a number of times, he earned a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and received a battle field commission.  He attended OCS for two days. His faith was rock solid.  He stood the test of time.  
His wife Eleanor died 7 months ago.
He is being waked at Clark’s in Yorktown:
