OBITUARY

Joseph “Joey” Zito, 68, of Port St. Lucie, passed away on Monday November 9, 2020. Born on June 1, 1952, in Brooklyn, NY, Joey was a lifelong resident of New York until he later moved to Port St. Lucie, Florida. He was an avid Mets fan and never missed watching a single game. He knew all there was to know about baseball, especially his beloved Mets. Joey was the comedian of the family. Whether he was making jokes, singing silly songs or coming up with slick comebacks on the fly, he had the ability to make any person laugh or crack a smile. His energy was infectious, he was one of those people that was so effortlessly funny no one knew how he did it and even he didn’t know how funny he was. Joey loved and was loved by his entire family. He would never forget your birthday, a holiday or a special occasion. One of the things his family loved about him was that his humor drifted into the birthday cards he would send. He always found the funniest, most clever ones and no one knew where he got them because they were so unique. He loved to come over to his parents’ home and watch his Mets games in the basement in the big, plush lounge chair he liked so much. Joey was a Con Edison worker for many years and truly adored his job. He had a sibling bond so strong it could never be broken, and loved his nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephew like they were his own. Joey was such a family man and that is something no one will ever forget. He was predeceased by his parents, Eugene and Raffaela Zito; brother in law Michael, he is survived by his siblings, Lucille, Diane and Ann Marie; his brother in law Joseph; nieces Jennifer and Elena; nephew Christopher; great nieces Ashley and Marissa; great nephew Kaden; along with many cousins, great friends and extended family. Joey will be missed immensely. VISITATION
