Funeral Home: Laurel Oaks Funeral Home
February 10, 1932 - June 22, 2013
Joe Sam Falco born, February 10, 1932 was surrounded by his family when he went to be with the Lord on June 22, 2013.
The visitation for Mr. Falco will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, at Laurel Oaks Funeral Home in Mesquite, Texas. The funeral is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 26, at the funeral chapel with interment to follow at Laurel Oaks Memorial Park.
A native of Bryan College Station, he followed in his father's footsteps to serve his country and joined the Air Force at 18. Joe Sam retired from a job he loved as a brilliant and highly regarded engineer at Texas Instruments after 40 years.
With his Italian heritage, nothing overjoyed him more than a new baby in the family. His greatest joy was watching all of the kids play. The family will miss his sense of humor and love of telling his childhood stories.
You will be missed our dear dad and Papa.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Gwendolyn Falco and granddaughter, Ava Rose Harris.
Survivors include his daughters, Deborah Falco, Francey Harris and her husband Anthony; two sons, Carlo Falco and wife Susan, and Sid Falco. He was a beloved grandfather of nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
