Joseph R. Palumbo, 72, passed away peacefully at his home in Middletown on December 28, 2018, surrounded by his family. Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Joseph and Helen (Ricciardi) Palumbo. He married his wife of 48 years, Carol (Irons) Palumbo, on August 10, 1970. Joe was a graduate of Barrington High School and Providence College. He earned a law degree from Boston College and was an attorney in private practice for over 40 years. He was a member of the Newport County, Rhode Island and American Bar Associations. He was very active in the community, including serving as Town Solicitor of Middletown and Little Compton, President of the Newport Lions Club, a long-time member of the Board of the Newport County Community Mental Health Center, a member and sponsor of Newport Festa Italiana, and the proud sponsor of his daughters' little league softball team.
Besides his wife, he is survived by his daughter Kristen, of Niantic, CT, his daughter Becky of Middletown, his son Matt of Flagstaff, AZ and his beloved grandson Brooks Venancio.
His family and friends will greatly miss him and his fun-loving spirit. In accordance with Joe's wishes, services will be private. Please consider donating to a charity of your choice in his name. His arrangements are under the direction of the Boucher Funeral Home, 272 Sayles Ave. Pascoag.
