I was blessed to work with and for Joe for years, first as a Board member of Preferred Care and subsequently as a friend, coach, advisor and motivator. His positive attitude was truly infectious as was his compassion for those he came into contact with. It mattered not to him if you were a waitress, a gas station attendant or President of a Fortune 500 company. He treated all with respect. His energy will be missed. His enduring positivity will be missed. Joe, I miss you.

I had the extremely good fortune to know Joe as a friend and colleague for several decades.  He was an intelligent, caring, positive gentleman who leaves the world a better place than he found it.  I will miss my friend.

I offer my and my wife Diane's heartfelt condolences to the Depaolis family whom Joe loved much and was very proud of.

My most sincere condolences to the entire DePaolis family.

Mr. DePaolis was an influential force and role model for a lot of us kids growing up in the 70’s. Whether the Holy Spirit church festival or Webster Schroeder sporting events, you always heard and recognized his booming voice. He was always someone I paid extra attention to when he spoke.

Great man, he will be missed.

A great friend and mentor

Shared by Jerry Bauer on September 22, 2022
 We got to know Joe and Shirley as we were involved with the process of going through the chairs of the NTDRA together.  Joe, a couple of years before me.  No pictures because I am talking about the 1980's but a lot of great memories.  Joe and I would chat between meetings about the things we were doing and how we could do things better.  I know Joe got the short end of the stick in these discussions as I was pretty young and still learning the ropes.  He was not only a mentor on business but a mentor on life as well.  Many lessons learned with my time spent with joe.  Joe and I also shared time on the Firestone Dealer Advisory Council and continued our friendship through that connection.

Our deepest sympathy to Joe's family.  A great guy and I am sure he will be missed.  Our thoughts are with all of you during this time.

A memory of Joe...& Shirley too!

I’m so glad that not only is your father resting and now able to operate with the full tilt energy he’s accustomed to, but that you and your siblings don’t have to witness him in pain and not himself. One thing is certain, The pathway to the Pearly Gates is meticulously hand edged landscaped and there is not one leaf or twig on that smooth entrance because Joe DePaolis was out there in his blue jumpsuit spraying it down with holy water the minute he was welcomed by Shirley who was dressed to the nines with full makeup and straight from the hairdresser ❤️❤️❤️

True friends and former neighbors,

The DePaolis family were so very kind to myself and my family in the early 70's. Our family was having some serious hard times. I was always very welcomed into their home with laughs and food. I remember one time at one of Mike's football games, Joe(respectfully) and I were on the sidelines and I picked up an orange side line cone and Mr. D" used it as a megaphone to cheer very loudly, and the ref's came over and were not happy, hahaha , we laughed so hard after. 
Those where the days of the big Ford station wagon, Antonelli tire, snowmobiles in our housing tract, crazy fun.  Why do I remember that he loved to wash that car?, he once allowed me and others to bust tires at the warehouse for some cash!. He had that punching bag in the garage and showed me how to properly box, I hurt myself, hahaha.
He and Shirley (respectfully) had such deserved pride in the kids even then, kindness, and sharing.
Thanks so much, Phil Weidenborner and family
