Rotonda West, FL - Joseph A. Lariviere, 82, of Rotonda West, passed away Sunday, February 16, 2020, at Englewood Community Hospital.
He was born on July 31, 1937, in Newburyport, Massachusetts, to the late Joseph and Mary Gagnon Lariviere.
Joe is remembered as a loving husband, a caring father, and a doting grandfather and great-grandfather. His career as a machine setter in the communications industry spanned several decades. He was an avid golfer, often bringing home awards testifying to his skill with a golf club. Before retiring to Florida from "up North," he was an active player on the amateur hockey team, the Maples, in Amesbury, Mass. He mentored the next generation of young players, accompanying a team to compete in the Soviet Union. He and his wife, Carol, traveled the world visiting their children. He treasured his tight circle of close friends and ever-expanding family, and answered to most any variation of Dad, or PopPop - Joe and Grampy.
Survivors include his loving wife of 60 years, Carol Lariviere; nine children: Anne (Charles) Regan, Lynne Cottis, Lisa Lariviere, Wendy (Christopher) Viera, Susan (Kevin) Martinelli, Amy (Paul) Wanat, Brian (Yvonne) Lariviere, Kevin (Amy Brandin) Lariviere, James (Melissa) Lariviere; 12 grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren.
