NATICK – Joseph Vincent Genova, 96, passed away peacefully at the Eliot Center in Natick on June 19, 2020.

Joe was the son of the late Vito and Agatha Genova and brother to Gaspar J. Genova.

Joe received a Purple Heart from the Army in WWII. 

He was employed at the USPS for over 30 years and the oldest letter carrier in Natick. 

After retirement he worked part-time for Sears for 25 years.  He had a love for all sports especially Baseball. 

On his “Bucket list” he wanted to sit on the Monster seats at Fenway Park so his family made it happen.  He enjoyed his long life with his family and friends. 

We will miss Joe very much.
