Joseph N. Respicio

Joseph N. Respicio, 76 of Ladson, South Carolina, passed away on the morning of Monday, August 15, 2022.

Born on October 29, 1945 in Paranaque, Philippines, he was the Son of the late Asuncion Cruz Respicio and Julian Respicio.

After completing his education in the Philippines, Joseph moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in November 1972 and began an over 35-year career as a Medical Technologist.  Joseph worked for many of the well-known medical centers across the Greater Philadelphia-area.

Joseph was an avid sports fan and counted the Philadelphia Flyers, 76ers, and Eagles among his favorite teams to cheer on.  A lifetime lover of all kinds of music, Joseph taught himself both the guitar and piano and enjoyed playing any chance he could.   When he wasn’t enjoying his favorite sports teams and music, Joseph loved cooking and creating food dishes for his family and friends as well as watching shows such as Jeopardy and British sitcoms on PBS.

Upon his retirement and move to South Carolina, Joseph became an active and devoted member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and a very proud member of the Knights of Columbus.
