Joseph S. Kowalski, 66, a resident of Fort Myers since 2004, formerly of Pleasantville, New York passed away Sunday, May 19, 2019 at his home. He was born in Mineola, New York on August 31, 1952 to Joseph L. Kowalski and Marjorie Hackett, now deceased.
Joe is survived by his devoted wife of 25 years Daniella; loving son, Joseph Santino; siblings, Robert J. Kowalski (Budapest), Nancy Kowalski (Boynton Beach), Joanne Kowalski (Boynton), preceded in death by his sister Marjorie Kowalski. Joe leaves behind many nieces, nephews and extended family who dearly loved him.
Joe was a true Patriot and loved his Country. He had a deep passion for music, animals, friends and family. Thankfully Joe was able to retire early from Verizon after 28 years to raise his son, travel on our boat and to simply enjoy living in Paradise. Joe was a brilliant musician and his love of music afforded him the opportunity to create Circle Music. His music brought joy to thousands of people. He passed this love of music on to Joseph Santino who will carry on his legacy.
