Mr. Joseph Maggi, Jr., 65, of New Hartford, entered into eternal life on Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at the Faxton-St. Luke's Healthcare Center, with his loving and devoted family by his bedside. He was born September 29, 1943, in Utica, the son of the late Joseph and Frances Scalzo Maggi. He was a graduate of T.R. Proctor High School, class of 1961 and continued his education at the Utica School of Commerce in the computer science field. From 1962-1965, Joe served his country in the US Army, where he rose to the rank of Sergeant at the age of 18. On April 22, 1967, at St. Paul's Church in Whitesboro, Joe married his devoted and much loved wife, Kathleen (Timmy) Murphy. After 35 years of service, Joe retired as a postal carrier from the US Postal Service. He was most recently employed at Mohawk Limited as an inside salesman for the west coast. Joe's favorite pastime was spending time with his shining star, "the love of his life", his granddaughter, Alexis Kalil.

Military honors will follow the Mass. Entombment will be in Calvary Cemetery Mausoleum. There are no public calling hours.

Timmy,Kelly, Alexis & Family,
I worked with Joe for more than 25 years at the Utica Post Office. I worked in the office of City Delivery with all of my favorite people, the Letter Carriers. Joe was respected by all who worked with him; I will always remember seeing him at his case and have many conversations with him. Having lost my husband this July to colon cancer, I know how hard this is for all of you; my prayers and my thoughts go out to you.
Dear Timmy,Angelo and family,my deepest sympathy to all.Remember his life and not his death.HE was a friend that I will never forget.
Our deepest regrets, Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. Sincerely
Richard, Marilyn and Richard Jr.
