Joseph J. Galletta 77, resident of Wilton, NH, passed on May 19, 2019 at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center, Nashua, NH surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Belmont, MA on January 22, 1942, the son of the late Salvatore and Mary (Krill) Galletta. He graduated from Belmont High School, Class of 1959 and Bentley College, Class of 1961.

Joe married the love of his life, Joyce Frissore, and moved to Wilton from Watertown, MA in 1965, pursuing an accounting career with Hitchiner Manufacturing. Soon after, he started with NCR Corporation where he worked for more than 35 years until retiring as Boston Regional Manager. Following his retirement, they enjoyed spending winters at their second home in Largo, FL.

Joe was predeceased by two sisters, Dorothy Adams and Evelyn King.

Joe was a past President of the Wilton Lions Club. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed bowling, but his true passion was his grandchildren.
