Joseph J. Monetta, 74, of North Abington Twp., died on Wednesday, at home.

Born April 21, 1947 in the Bronx, he was the son of the late Joseph Anthony and Anna M. (Sclafani) Monetta. Joe graduated from St. Helena’s High School and honorably served his country in the New York Army National Guard. He married the late Linda Lee (Barlow) Monetta on September 12, 1971. Joe retired from MetLife as VP of Customer Service after 37 years.

Joe enjoyed playing chess with his daughter, Jennifer, target shooting, hearing updates about his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, watching movies and spending time with Jennifer’s dog, Luci.

Surviving are his three children- Christina Murri and husband Doug of Sugar Grove, IL., Jennifer Monetta and fianceé Paul Coleman of Factoryville, and Gregory Monetta and wife Ashley of Dalton; 7 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Joe was preceded in death by his brother, Dr. Dominic J. Monetta.

The family will receive relatives and friends on Friday, December 3 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm at Jennings-Calvey Funeral and Cremation Services, Inc., 111 Colburn Avenue, Clarks Summit, PA 18411. A funeral service will be held at 6:30pm at the funeral home. A private interment will take place in Hickory Grove Cemetery, Waverly Twp.

Our deepest sympathy to your family. We have known your dad from the earliest MetLife days. I just saw your Dad two weeks ago, delivering groceries to him. He always had a big smile and a kind heart. You will be in our thoughts during these days and months to come. Sincerely, Mike and Sandy Anglin

To Joe's family. . .what can you say about Joe? He was quite the character and a wonderful mentor. It makes me smile to think of him now - not sadness. I would say to pay attention to the signs he will send you now that he's "up there" with Linda. And know he's watching over you all. Take special care of each other. :-) Chris C.

Joe was my 'boss' at Met Life for years and my memories of him during that time are wonderful. He was always so positive and understanding, helpful, incredibly considerate...and funny. Tho I've not seen him recently, I miss him today and will light my special candle for him and remember. My sincere sympathy to his family.
