Joseph A. Meuse

 Joseph A. Meuse passed away on June 14, 2024, at the age of 98 in Stoneham, MA. Born on September 30, 1925, in Melrose, MA, Joe was admired for his fitness and vigor, completing as many push-ups on each day as years that passed in his life up until the age of 86.

Joe was a proud alumnus of Melrose High School, followed by further studies at Bentley School of Accounting and Finance, which paved the way for a successful career with Superior Brands, Incorporated. A decorated veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam, he dedicated 28 years of service to his country, holding various positions and responsibilities that underscored his commitment and discipline.

Known for his kind, and generous nature, Joe was highly organized and numerate. Everyone’s devoted and favorite uncle, he was deeply family-oriented, always finding joy in visiting family members including the pets and engaging in activities that brought everyone closer together. 

Joe is survived by his sister, Phyllis Hancox, many nieces, nephews, their spouses and their children who will all miss his presence and cherish his memory. He was preceded in death by his parents, David and Josephine (Breare) Meuse, and his siblings, Dorothy McCormack, David, George, Marion Fasciano, Barbara LeBlanc, Eleanor Rossier, William and his dear niece Ginny who he considered his best friend.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, July 11th from 10am to 12pm at Boston Cremation, 287 Main St., Malden, MA. Joseph’s life will be commemorated in a gathering that honors his memory and legacy. His spirit and enduring influence will be missed but fondly remembered by all who knew him.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in support of our Military and Veterans to:  Fisher House Foundation,12300 Twin Brook Pkwy – Suite 410 Rockville, MD 20852
