He became most active at the Immaculate Conception Parish and joined the Knights of Columbus, Council #179 of Revere. He would fill many offices within the K of C, being appointed Deputy Grand Knight. Within that organization, Joe made many friends; friends that he carried until his passing. For over fifty years, Joe owned & operated “Parkdale Woodworking” of Roslindale, East Boston & Somerville. He was considered to be one of the best “Master Carpenters” in this area. Joe was pre-deceased by his loving wife of 55 years, Thelma (St. George) Miraglia, who passed in February of 2003.

He is the devoted father of Joseph Miraglia Jr. of Revere & Roberta A. Mitchell & her husband, John W. “Jack” of Chelmsford. He is the devoted grandfather of Erica Copenhaver & her husband, Timothy & Allison Griffin, all of Ft. Myers, Florida, Justin Miraglia of Ayer, Danielle & Michelle Miraglia, both of New Hampshire. He is also lovingly survived by the “sunshine of his life”; his great-granddaughter, Grace Kelli Copenhaver of Ft. Myers, Florida, many nieces & nephews, grand-nieces & grand-nephews. He is the dear brother to the late William Miraglia, Josephine Mazzarella & Mary Bucchieri.
