March 10, 1953 - October 12, 2016
Joseph Dean Spinuzzi, 63, of Pueblo, went to meet Jesus on October 12, 2016 in Pueblo Colorado. Joe's wishes were to have a celebration of life, which will be held at the Pueblo Airport Museum on Saturday November 12th at 4 pm. Joe was born a Pueblo native and graduated from East high school in 71'. He spent his working life as a manager in the food and beverage industry until one of his closest friends helped him to get a restaurant of his own. Pueblo natives may remember Joe's restaurant, Goombas, as a fun atmosphere with great affordable homemade Italian food. Joe took pride in his restaurant, the walls covered in 50's/ 60's inspired swag. The wait staff would even dress in gangster era attire. Joe would tell numerous stories of his working days in the food and beverage industry, and you were lucky if you ever got to work with Joe, because he was always playing pranks and having a good time. He genuinely loved what he did. Joe was a talented musician and artist. He spent free time painting or writing songs. Some of you may remember attending Joe's Elvis shows. He was an incredible Elvis impersonator, his final shows at his restaurant where he would serve you a spaghetti meal, followed by his favorite famous chocolate cake. His son and daughter were the sound and lights guys. Once his young son even fell asleep during his show and missed his light cue. His daughter would sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow in the show, his wish was for her to sing it at his service. Joe is preceded by his father Frank Spinuzzi Sr., who he spent his days so excited to be re-united with, you could almost feel his excitement, his mother Iola, step mother Jenny Jo Spinuzzi, who was mother to Joe, sisters Donna and Francis Spinuzzi, who helped to raise him, and brother Bobby Spinuzzi, who he couldn't wait to joke and laugh with again. Joe is survived by children Brieanna and Joseph Jr. Spinuzzi, and his fur child Ace who were all his best friends, and his grand children Myah " moo-moo", Kaeson "nader", and Abbey "blabbey", who were the light of Papa's life. Joe is also survived by his siblings Shirley Bryson, Frank (Cheryl) Spinuzzi, Sam (Katherine) Spinuzzi, extended family Stephanie Spinuzzi, Roxie Spinuzzi, and step children Lisa (John) Oates, Erich (Shelley) Olds, and numerous nieces, nephews, family remembers, and many friends. Joe spent his final days gathering with " the old mans group " once a month, where he would sit around bs'ing with with his best friends whom were family to him. They met at Stephs bar, The Riverside, where he could be found eating his favorite grinder and fries. Joe became great friends with his caretaker Mary Ann, who helped him take care of his most best friend in life, his dog Ace.
