Joey was truly a great man whose impact will be forever felt by his family, who loves him dearly. He was a selfless man whose passing left an unfillable gap in the hearts of his loved ones. Many will remember his quick wit and the willingness to help anyone be it building, towing, or fixing he was there. Joey had many interests and hobbies, car racing in his younger days at the Islip Speedway, learning to fly starting out in a piper-cub then a Cessna 150. He enjoyed oldies music, hunting bears in Canada or deer in Upstate NY. Boating was his favorite. Crabbing, fishing or just relaxing at Robert Moses on his boat the “Grasshopper”. Above all else he was a cherished husband, father, and Poppy. Loved by many and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
The family greatly appreciates donations made to these charities in Joseph Rubino 's name.
