Joseph F. Kneeland, Jr., of Stoneham, passed away on Monday, June 4th, 2018, with his beloved family by his side. He was 67 years of age.

Born in Winthrop, Joe was the son of the late Joseph F. Kneeland, Sr., and Margaret (Kelly) Kneeland. He was the beloved husband of Denise (Gallo) Kneeland and the cherished father of Kelly Kneeland. He was the loving brother of Sharon Dempster and her husband Dave, Margaret "Peggy" Walsh and her late husband Thomas, and Eileen Ingersoll and her husband Rich. Throughout much of his life, Joe was uncle and great uncle to many loving nieces and nephews, whom he adored.

Anyone who knew Joe knew that he was an avid Boston sports fan. He loved all local sports teams, most especially the New England Patriots. As a Patriots season ticket holder, Joe attended all of the home games for 25 years. He was a Veteran of the United States Army, and he was a lifelong WWII history buff.
Joe will be most remembered for loving his family dearly. He and Denise celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary this past winter, and as his only child, Kelly was truly the apple of his eye. He will also be remembered for hosting many holiday dinners and other celebrations where the family clan came together for good times and laughter.

A funeral service celebrating Joe's Eternal Life will be held in the Barile Family Funeral Home, 482 Main St. (RT28) in Stoneham on Saturday, June 9th, at 1 pm. Family and friends are kindly invited to visiting hours prior to the service from 11 am to 1 pm. Parking attendants and an elevator are available.
Please consider donations in memory of Joe Kneeland to be made to the American Heart Assoc., PO Box 417005, Boston, MA 02241-7005.
