Joe owned and operated Vari Fasteners Inc. for many years before retirement.

The Great Joe Pippa, as many of his friends and family called him , simply lit up any room he was in.

He was a wonderful husband to his beautiful wife Ruth and the best father to his children.
He loved each and every one of his cherished grandchildren beyond belief.
