Joe was born and raised in Quincy the son of the late Giuseppe S. and Antonina (Nigrelli) Ciraolo. He graduated from Quincy High School and began working as a plumber’s apprentice for many local companies before earning his license and operating his own plumbing business. He and Nancy married in 1970, settled in Quincy and raised their family. Joe took great pride in his yard, loved landscaping and they always had the best lawn on the block. He loved antique cars, collecting a 1936 and 1938 Ford and a 1964 Ford Galaxie which he entered in car shows in Maine parades. His grandsons shared his love of cars and they started their own “MJD” Auto Club. Joe was a proud Italian American, loved his country, was an avid boxing fan but most of all he loved his family. All those who knew him will miss him dearly.
