Born & raised in Revere, he attended Revere Public Schools & graduated from Somerville Trade School in 1969. Joe Jr. came to work within the family business, “Badolato Produce & Trucking, Inc.” as a young man & continued to operate & oversee the growth & success of the business, until it’s closing in 1990. The business had it’s inception in the early part of 1900, by Joe Jr. ‘s grandfather. In 1990, after the business closed, Joe Jr., opened the Hallmark Card & Gift Shop at the Woburn Mall for about 10 years into 2000. In 2007, he founded Wine & Grape of New England with an office in Everett. This company was a central educational & learning center for all things wine & grape. Not only could you select from a vast selection of wines; you could learn about wines from vine to table. The company also sold any & all paraphernalia related to the art of wine taste and wine etiquette. Joe especially loved & enjoyed his function within this venture, in spite of almost always being in severe pain dealing with the complications of pancreatic cancer. He also, throughout his career, dabbled in real estate development.

He is the devoted father of Joseph J. Badolato & his wife, Shaina R. Flammia & Danielle G. Badolato, all of Revere. He is the cherished grandfather to Eva R. Badolato. He is also the dear brother of Marie D. Aloisi & her husband, Joseph of Salem & Susan R. DeMarco & her husband, Ralph P. DeMarco of Derry, N.H.
