FRAMINGHAM – Joseph L. Camgemi, Jr., 70, a long-time resident of Marlborough and formerly of Framingham, died suddenly Monday morning, December 14, 2020.
Born in Framingham, he was the son of the late Joseph L. & Dora (Kruger) Camgemi.
A 1969 graduate of Framingham High School, Joe went on to attend Northeastern University before joining the Massachusetts National Guard.
His first job was at the Framingham courts working in maintenance. In 1976 he married the love of his life, Nancy, and moved to Toledo, Ohio, where he worked for Reliance Electric.
Not long after, they moved back to Framingham where Joe and a partner started a computer business and created the first automation for the court system here in Framingham.
Joe was an outdoorsman. He loved to fish, gold pan, hunt, camp, boat and play billiards.
More than anything, Joe loved spending time with his family. Joe leaves behind his wife of 55 years, Nancy A. (Lombardini), son Christopher M. of Taunton, son Brian P. & his wife Kathryn of Concord, his grandson and namesake, Joseph G., his sisters Sandy O’Brien of CO and Carol Brooks & her husband Steven of Hudson, brothers and sisters-in-law, and several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
Joe’s sudden passing has left an indelible hole in our shattered hearts. He was the life of every party and brought so much joy, laughter and love to all the many lives he touched. We will forever love him. He will never be forgotten.
