Joseph Pepkowski passed away at The Pine Run Community on April 21, 2018, on the 55th anniversary of his older brother John’s passing. He was 98.
Joseph was the husband of Mary (Vicky) (nee Rozborski) Pepkowski and the father of the late Christine Pepkowski .
Born on the family farm in Tinicum, Bucks County, he was the son of the late Kazimere and Tillie Pepkowski. Joe continued the farming operation until the late 1960’s.
In addition to farming, he held employment at various businesses, including the Dublin Hosiery Mill and later, retiring from the Palisades School District.
Joe was the brother of the late Anna, Mary, John, Catherine, Francis, Blanche, and Eleanor. His sister Helen survives him.
Joseph was an avid fisherman and hunter, given the name “Eagle Eye” for his keen marksmanship. While he rarely missed watching a Phillies Game, his entire family was his pride and joy, a feeling mutually shared by his many, many nieces and nephews.
