Joseph (Joey) A. Brescia, 75, of Warwick, passed away at Rhode Island Hospital on Friday, March 30, 2024. He was the beloved husband of Judith A. (Joaquin) Brescia, to whom he had been married for 43 years. 

Born in Attleboro, MA, Joey lived most of his life in Seekonk, MA, before moving to Warwick, RI.

He also leaves behind two daughters, Wendy Brescia and her husband James Amaral of Rehoboth, MA, Lisa Koble and her partner Paul Jamrog of Narragansett, RI, and two cherished grandchildren, Jacob Koble and Mitchel Koble.
