Joseph Consiglio  -  Passed June 24th 2015
United States Navy, a longtime resident of Pelham Manor and current resident of New
Milford, CT., died on June 24, 2015. He was 87.
Joseph was born on June 18, 1928 in the Bronx to the late Gerard and Irene (DeRosa)
Consiglio.  He enlisted in the US Navy on Dec 18, 1945 wanting to follow his older brother
John who was already serving in the Navy.  Joseph completed  basic training in Norfolk
Va, and served on the US Noble, APA 218. Noble's primary mission was to transport to a
combat area the men and some of the material necessary for an assault on an enemy
shore.  Her main armament, her boat group, was designed to deliver her troops and
cargo to the beach in a planned and orderly fashion. After discharging troops and
equipment, she could evacuate casualties or prisoners of war.  Joseph received his
Honorable Discharge in November, 1947.
After leaving the service and using the training he received, Joseph went to work as a
mechanic. He later went on to start his own gas station repair business as the Boston
Dyre Corporation in the Bronx, first as Sinclair and later on as Power Test and BP. He
retired at 64 but continued on occasion to help his clients with repairs.
In 1964, Joseph was spotlighted on Candid Camera at his station. The story is of a
woman who pulls into the station to fill her gas tank. Joseph starts pumping gas, and
pumping gas. The woman becomes upset when the tank is finally full, 4 times the normal
amount, and what did he do wrong,  how is she going to pay for it, and so on. Shown
earlier to the audience, there were 3 additional gas tanks in the back seat of the car. At
the end, “Smile, You’re On Candid Camera” had Joseph almost falling down in shock.
Joseph moved to New Milford CT in 2008 where he became a familiar figure always
wearing his American Legion hat which he wore with pride.
Joseph   was predeceased by his wife Carol whom he married on November 19, 1951.
She died on April 22, 2012. He is survived by his three children:  Susan Cozza, William
Consiglio and Robert Consiglio; his grandchildren Joseph, Sunday Marie, Katherine,
Kimberly, Gina and Christopher; his great grandsons Nathan and Johnny Dino; and his
great granddaughter Gianna. He was predeceased by a brother John.
