Joseph Vincent Timpanaro, 41, of Asbury Park passed away unexpectedly on Friday, May 6, 2022. He was born in Orange, raised in West Caldwell, and had lived in Clifton and Livingston before settling in Asbury Park in 2018. He was a graduate of James Caldwell High School Class of 1999 where he was a two-time State champion as middle linebacker and fullback. After moving to Asbury Park, Joe reinvented himself, changing professions and entering the hospitality industry, tending bar. Within the last four years he worked his way to become head bartender at Porta in Asbury Park and more recently went on to perfect his craft and join the opening team at Centrada in Red Bank. In his previous life, Joe was the owner of J.T. Property Maintenance and J.T. Development. He loved spending time at the beach with his dog Mugsy and was extremely dedicated to his daily fitness regiment. As a child, Joe enjoyed vacations in Wildwood Crest with his family. He was an avid movie buff and could quote any line. He was a great storyteller and had a magnetic personality. Joe was the life of the party and possessed a larger-than-life presence. Yet what he held closest to his heart was that he was a dad, a son, a brother, an uncle, and an amazing loyal friend.
Joe is survived by his three beautiful children, Mia Rose, Juliana Alexa and Angelina Stella; his parents, Vincent and Lucille Timpanaro; four sisters, Tara Quigley and her partner, Travis North of Farmingdale, Laura Lang and her husband, Ryan of Chester, Liza Cioffi and her husband, Gregory of Monmouth Beach, and Tricia Timpanaro and her partner, Bryan Panzica of Long Branch; two nephews, Luke and Leonardo; two nieces, Grace and Penelope; brother-in-law, Peter Quigley of Asbury Park; and many friends.
All arrangements were private and under the direction of the Clayton & McGirr Funeral Home, Freehold Township. For those who desire, memorial contributions may be made to Jersey Shore Surfrider Foundation. As Joe would do, next time you are out, remember to take care of your bartender.
