Joseph “Joe” Cavello, 74, passed away at Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh on Sunday, May 1, 2022 with his family at his side. Joe was born on April 22, 1948 in Greensburg. He was the son of the late Joseph and Lena (Moffe) Cavello of Greensburg. Joe was a 1966 graduate of Greensburg High School. He was a proud graduate of Penn State University where he earned his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, and of Robert Morris University, where he earned his MBA. Joe spent his career working within the power industry for companies including Duquesne Light, NRG, and Reliant Energy where he was a senior power expert. Joe was the most thoughtful and generous person walking this great globe, and the world is certainly left a worse place without him. He would not hesitate to help anyone at any time and he was truly an authentic individual. He touched the lives of so many and was consistently kind and good. He was a member of Saint Margaret Mary Church in Lower Burrell.
Survivors include his son, Brandon Cavello of Wexford and daughter, Nicole (Brian) Ferraccio of Allegheny Township. Sisters, Patti Angiulli (Martin) of Vandergrift and Marlene Cavello of Manor. Joe, also known as Pappy, also leaves behind his pride and joy, his granddaughters, his “peanuts”, Violet and Autumn Ferraccio. He was Uncle Joe to many loving nieces and nephews and a loving cousin to many relatives.
He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, 13 years ago, Patricia Cavello.
