In memory of
Joseph T. Hanley Jr.
Joseph T. Hanley Jr. Grandfather of 10, avid reader, known for his dry sense of humor Joseph T. Hanley Jr., 82, died peacefully at home, surrounded by family, on Oct. 6, 2016. The son of Joseph T. Hanley Sr. and Agnes V. Hanley (nee O'Hare), Joe was born and raised in New York City and moved to Clinton Township, N.J., in 1970. He earned a B.S. in chemistry from Saint John's University in 1955, and retired from the State of New Jersey Department of Health in 1998. In addition to his wife of 53 years, Rose Hanley (nee Nappo), Joe is survived by his sibling, Sister Roseann Hanley, Maryknoll Sisters, Ossining, N.Y., and his five children and 10 grandchildren: daughter Kathleen Hanley, her husband Stefan Cornelis, and their children, Sofie, Louisa and Juliette, New York City; daughter Rose Hanley and her partner Jim Cavanagh, Bethlehem Township, N.J.; son Joseph T. Hanley III and his children, Ava Rose and Joseph T. IV, Clinton, N.J.; son Daniel Hanley and his partner Roxanne Wolf, Lebanon Township, N.J.; and son Andrew Hanley, his wife Gina Sampaio, and their children, Bella, Gabriel, Eli, Zeke and Zy'Asia, Lebanon Township. He was predeceased by his sisters, Joan Amari and Agnes Magro. Joe was an avid reader, particularly of non-fiction, noting marginalia in books and clipping articles of interest in The New York Times. He enjoyed photography, jazz music, nature and being outdoors. His hobbies included breeding guppies, raising Japanese red maples and cultivating bonsai trees. Joe had a keen, dry sense of humor, which entertained and confounded people until the end. Memorial donations may be made to Maryknoll Sisters, P.O.
