Charles J. “Joe” Piazza passed away on July 26,2017 after a long illness. Joe was born in 1937 to Charles and Josephine Piazza. He was a lifelong resident of Ossining, graduating from Ossining High School in 1956 and the TriCity Barber School in NYC in 1957. On May 6,1962, he married Barbara Bowington and together they celebrated over 55 years together. Joe owned and operated the Roosevelt Square Barber Shop for over 50 years. Always active, Joe loved sports and he played softball until he was almost 40 years old. He loved bowling, fishing, crabbing and just being outdoors. He and Barbara were fortunate to have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, the Baltics, Italy/Sicily and the Caribbean. After his health began to decline you could find him most days playing cards with his many wonderful friends. Joe considered himself a very lucky man in many respects.
