Joseph Stephen Gandolfi, 57, passed away unexpectedly on July 4, 2016 at Florida Hospital New Smyrna. He was the beloved husband of Denise Daniels Gandolfi. They shared almost 33 years of marriage together.
Born in Parma, Italy, he was the son of the late Giovanni Gandolfi and Louise Gandolfi of Port Orange, Florida. He was a graduate of Natick High School and attended Boston University and Boston Architectural College. He was the owner/operator of Joe Gandolfi Landscape Design for the past 29 years.
He enjoyed playing golf and was an avid New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan. He loved watching old westerns, hanging out at the beach with his family, spending time with his wife gardening their beautiful yard and most of all being with his grandson Gavin who he loved to take on walks and was teaching how to play soccer.
He will be remembered for his contagious smile, huge heart and his love for life. He was kind, loving and selfless. He was taken far too soon and will be missed greatly.
He is survived by his mother, Louise Gandolfi, his wife Denise, his daughter Danielle Sandhagen and her husband Greg Sandhagen and his grandson Gavin Sandhagen. He is also survived by cousins, brothers and sisters in law, nieces and nephews.
Joe’s Celebration of Life will be held Tuesday, July 12 at 4pm at Baldwin Brothers, 1 North Causeway, New Smyrna Beach. After the celebration, the family welcomes you to come to 27th Ave on the beach to pay your final respects.
