The unforgettable firecracker that was Joseph F. Ercoli began lighting up the halls of Heaven on the morning of October 3rd.
A proud and passionate Italian-American, the always lively and colorful Joe was born in San Francisco on May 18, 1947 to Joseph and Patricia Ercoli. Growing up in South San Francisco, Joe was educated at All Souls Elementary, Serra High School, and Santa Clara University.
Distinguishing himself as a civil engineer, as a South City restaurateur, and as a long time salesman, Joe toiled his entire life with a tirelessness and tenacity that was as impressive as it was unmatched.
A lover of horses, political discussions, and the Dollar Store, Joe's most fiercely cherished treasure was the beloved family that survives and celebrates him: his devoted bride of forty-three years, Christine, and his dear, precious children, Alexis and Joseph.
We shall not see his like again, but the world is richer for his having passed this way. A visitation and rosary will be held at 7pm Sunday, October 7th, at Crippen & Flynn Carlmont Chapel. A funeral Mass will be said at 10AM on Monday, October 8th at Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Belmont. Sign the guestbook at www.crippenflynn.com
