Barber 02

Joseph Salvatore Moschetta

March 14, 1932 ~ July 27, 2022 (age 90)


Joseph Moschetta, 90, of Franklin Lakes, NJ passed peacefully on Wednesday, July 27th in Mahwah, NJ.

Joseph was one of 5 children born to Luciano and Antonia Moschetta in the village of Selvacava in the province of Frosinone, Italy. He emigrated to the United States in 1950 at the age of 18. 

After working at various jobs, he went to school for training to become a barber. In the late 60’s, he opened his own barber shop. For 30 years he owned and operated Joe’s Barber Shop on McLean Avenue in Yonkers, NY until he retired.  He greatly enjoyed his work and was very fulfilled by his long-standing relationships with his clients. He would share his numerous “barber shop” stories with everyone he met and prided himself on cutting the hair of 3 or more generations of many families.

Joseph was predeceased by his loving wife of 61 years, Maria, and his siblings Alessandro Moschetta, Sylvia Marricco, Salvatore Moschetta and Angela Garofalo. 

He is survived by his devoted son Luciano and his wife, Mary Ellen; his beloved grandchildren Gillian, Joseph and John; and numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews.

We are extremely grateful for the loving care he received from the wonderful staff at Brandywine Living in Mahwah, NJ and Valley Hospice over the past four months. 

Joseph's family will receive relatives and friends on Sunday, July 31st, from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Van Emburgh-Sneider-Pernice Funeral Home, 109 Darlington Avenue, Ramsey, NJ, 07446.
