Story No. 090921103

It is with deep sorrow that the officers and members of the Beachwood Fire Department announce the passing of Life Member Joseph V. Mockapetris, who passed away on August 18th.

Joe joined the Beachwood Fire Department in October of 1973 and served for 35 years as an active firefighter, “retiring” from active duty in 2008.

During his time in the department, Joe proudly served alongside of his wife, Roxane Mockapetris, who was a life member of our Ladies Auxiliary Unit. Roxane passed away in 2006. Joe was a life member of the New Jersey State Firemen's Association and the Beachwood Exempt Firefighter Association. Joe also served as a Trustee to the Ocean County Fireman’s Association.

A true friend and brother to his fellow firefighters, Joe's laugh and unique, dry humor will truly be missed. We ask all to keep the Mockapetris Family and friends in your thoughts during this time.

Rest easy brother, we'll take it from here.
