“The Window TintMan” “Papa Jappa Joe” Son of Douglas Bishop and LaJuana Bruno. Joe Bishop born December 20, 1955, passed away suddenly on September 6, 2022, at 66 years old.
He was preceded in death by his father Douglas Bishop, his brother Randy Bishop, and his girlfriend of 18 years Sally Padgett. Joe is survived by his mother LaJuana Bruno (Frank), and his siblings Paul Bishop (Mary), and Terri Lawrence (Lacey). His children Heidi Bishop, James Bishop, Eric Bishop (Adrian), Spencer Bishop, Dustin Woodworth (Julia), Sean Padgett (Alisha), Sandy Padgett (Jessy) and Jenna Hulings, 5 grandsons (Orion, Jack, Landen, Robin, Gerald), 9 granddaughters (Liliana, Laila, Aubrey, Roselynn, Kyra, Kaliegh, Faye, Annabelle, Leora), nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends.
Joe loved to travel, ALIENS, caring for others, his family and his job. He was also a great cook. He was known as “The Window TintMan” running a quite successful business since 1980. Joe had a gift of gab and was the type of person that would give the shirt off his back for a total stranger. Joe was a free spirit and was always smiling and spreading joy to others. He spent his life helping others. Joe was a one-of-a-kind person and left an impression on everyone he met. Joe will be greatly missed, and life will surely be lonelier here on earth without him.
Private funeral services were held at the convenience of his family. Funeral arrangements are under the care of the W. Tad Bowers Funeral Home, 92 S. Lake St., North East, PA. To send condolences, please visit www.bowersfuneralhome.com.
