Joseph M. DeLorenzo, former six-year Eastern Produce Council President and Director of Produce for Krasdale Foods of White Plains, NY, passed away at the age of 64 on November 13, 2014.

Joe’s passion for produce has been a source of inspiration for many in the retail industry. For over 20 years, he played a critical role with FoodTown Corporation, eventually leading him to land a role as Director of Produce for Krasdale Foods for the last 12 years. His contributions to the industry will not be forgotten.  

Joe was born on November 10, 1950 in New York City and moved to Middletown, NJ at six years old. He attended St. Mary’s School and graduated from mater Dei High School, Class of 1969.

Joe was well regarded in the industry as a family man, and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. An avid Sinatra enthusiast, he loved to sing, entertain, and he also enjoyed traveling.

Joe is survived by his adoring wife, Malama “Goldie” DeLorenzo, his father, Anthony DeLorenzo, four sisters, along with many children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

AndNowUKnow would like to offer our heartfelt sympathies to Joe’s family and friends.
