Joe is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Ruth S. (LaFlore) Guglielmo of Keeseville; his children, Cheryl and her husband Sid Roark, Rosemary and her husband David Fisher of Florida, Debra Dubuque of Nebraska, Robert and his wife Amy Fleury, Michael and his wife Tammy Fleury, all of Peru, Patti LaGoy of Morrisonville; several grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; and three brothers, Mario, Edward, and Victorio Guglielmo.
