Joseph D’Erasmo, age 75 of Brewster, New York, passed away peacefully from an illness on March 8, 2019 while he was surrounded by family.
Joe was born in Bari, Italy on February 21, 1944 and was one of the late Fedele and Antonia D’Erasmo’s four children. He is predeceased by his sister Maria Rella and survived by both his sister Vita Rella and brother Vito D’Erasmo.
Joe moved to the Bronx, New York in 1960 with determination to have a rich life. He worked as a chef and lead singer in an Italian-American band as he paid tuition for Beauty School. Later on, Joe graduated from CBS Beauty School in the Bronx, New York in 1965 and built a successful career in hairdressing for 50 years. He was the owner of Peppino of Italy Beauty Salon in Yonkers, New York from 1970 to 2004. Joe later worked part time as a hairdresser at Luke’s Hair Design, then La Moda in Somers, New York.
Joe is survived by the love of his life, Maria D’Erasmo, who he has been married to for 49 years. He met his wife one night where he and his band were performing. Joe began raising his family with Maria in New Rochelle, New York in 1969 and later moved his family to North Salem, New York in 1984. He is also survived by his three children: son Philip D’Erasmo and wife Shira, daughter Annette Milne and husband Greg, and son Anthony D’Erasmo. Joe is also survived by his grandchildren Madison Milne, William Milne, and Dylan D’Erasmo.
Joe’s love for gardening, cooking, and music will never be forgotten. His memory will live on as his stories are told by family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
A viewing will be held from 4:00-8:00 PM on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at Beecher Funeral Home in Brewster, New York. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at 10:00 AM at Saint Joseph’s Church in Somers, New York.
