Joseph R. "Joe" Pisony, 81, of New Philadelphia, died Thursday, Jul. 14, 2011, in Affinity Medical Center, Massillon, of complications from a recent heart surgery.
Born Jan. 25, 1930, in Roswell, he was a son of the late John and Julia Popelus Pisony. Joe attended New Philadelphia High School, and, on Jul. 27, 1948, he married the former Dolores Mowrer in Sacred Heart Church, New Philadelphia. The couple would have celebrated their sixty-third wedding anniversary later this month.
Joe was employed by the City of New Philadelphia for thirty-three years, retiring in 1995. He was a member of New Philadelphia's Sacred Heart Church.
Some of Joe's happiest days were spent camping and fishing at Clendening Lake with his family. He taught all of his grandchildren about fish and fishing. Joe was a gardener, growing vegetables for his family's use as well as beautiful flowers. He was a fixture at the McDonald's on W. High, enjoying breakfast there nearly every day. Joe also loved Tuscora Park and taking his grandchildren there when they were young.
In addition to his loving wife, Dolores, Joe will be sadly missed by his family, which includes his son, Daniel R. (Evelyn) Pisony of New Philadelphia; his four daughters, Connie Gross and Cathryn (Gary) McRobie, both of New Philadelphia, Jody (Melvin) Ash of Venice, Fla., and Janie Porcher of Dover; ten grandchildren, of whom he was most proud, Robbie (Teresa) Gross, Danny J.

Ren, Dawn Gross and Rachel Pisony; fifteen great-grandchildren; his sister and brother, Esther Beans and Albert (Virginia) Pisony, both of New Philadelphia; several nieces and nephews.
