Obituary for Joseph P. Nocera

Joseph P. Nocera of Derry Township passed away May 2, 2013, at his home.
Born in Rockville Centre, NY on March 17, 1927, Joe was the youngest of 12 children born to Joseph and Virginia Carbonetti Nocera.
He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Frances Soukup Nocera; his beloved daughter, Christine Nocera Christ of Hershey; his loving son, Joseph W. Nocera and fiancé Lindsey of Hummelstown; 2 grandchildren, Kaitlin M. Christ and David A. Christ of Hershey; and his dear sister, Louise Nocera of Rockville Centre, NY. He has many nieces and nephews, but was close to nephew, Richard Pombonyo of Brightwaters, NY, and Rosy Milone of Brooklyn, NY.
Joe was an Army veteran of 2 wars, having enlisted as a teenager in WWII where he served in Italy. He remained in the Army Reserves and was called to active duty in the Korean Conflict with the 31st Infantry serving as a platoon leader. Joe attained the rank of Staff Sergeant First Class.
Joe retired from Mount Joy Vocational Technical School where he taught Painting and Decorating. One of his many joys in teaching came from students winning the annual VICA Competition several years in a row under his direction. Of his vast number of students, Joe remained close to Jeffrey Kauffman of Mt. Joy and Sherry Houseal of Dillsburg. Joe was a member of St. Joan of Arc R.C. Church in Hershey for 36 years. He was an avid golfer, gardener and reader, keeping the ladies at Hershey Public Library busy. But, most of all, Joe was a family man who loved his home and friends. He will be missed by many.
A Memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 10:00 AM at St. Joan of Arc Roman Catholic Church, 359 West Areba Avenue, Hershey, with The Rev. Fr. Michael W. Rothan as celebrant. Inurnment with military honors will be in Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, Annville. Friends will be received following the Mass from 11 to 11:30 AM in the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions made to Hospice of Central Pennsylvania, 1320 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17110; or to St. Joan of Arc Roman Catholic Church, 359 West Areba Avenue, Hershey, PA 17033.
