A beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend, Joseph M. Matonti, IV left this world unexpectedly on Monday, November 15, 2021. Due to a sudden and devastating brain aneurysm, Joe lost his life at the young age of 40 years old.

More recently, Joe had been working along side his brother, Stephen, strengthening their bond and building a family business - Stephen Matonti Heating & Cooling.
Joe married the love of his life, Allison Davis, on August 20, 2011 and instantly created a family with daughter, Madison McCormick. Joe and Ali proceeded to welcome three additional children to their family - Joseph M Matonti, V (9), Anthony Geno Matonti (6), and Maycie James Matonti (4).
He was a lover of hip-hop music, specifically Wu-Tang. He also had an eye for fashion, always matching a fresh fitted hat to his ever-growing sneaker and jersey collection.
Joe became an instant friend to all who knew him, and was fiercely loyal to his family. His wife and children meant absolutely everything to him, as many have witnessed how immensely he adored them.
