August 04, 1949 - November 03, 2015


Joe Lavin passed away on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 66 years old. Born in Philadelphia Pa., he and his family moved to California in 1974.

Joe spent the last 46 years with his wife Diane. He is also survived by daughter Monica Ward, son-in-law John and granddaughter MacKenzie. Also surviving Joe are his sister Maureen Erthal, brothers Andrew Lavin and Thomas Lavin (Dee), and so many loving nieces and nephews. Joe was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and Teresa, his brother John and sister Alice.

Joe will be remembered mostly as a courageous man who was kind as well as strong. He was a fighter who loved freely. He enjoyed celebrations, spending time with family and friends, music, going to the show, watching the Philadelphia Flyers and anything related to MacKenzie.

    I met Joe and Diane at Monica & John’s wedding and then at several Family gatherings. Last time I saw Joe was at Christmas Dinner at Monica’s. I remembered talking to Joe and teasing about the many gifts he got from his devoted family. Joe was a handsome, caring man with charisma and beautiful smile (this picture proves it), and a kind, loving and devoted Grandad to Mackenzie.
    Joe always made us feel good and held everybody’s attention with his interesting conversation. He will be greatly missed by All especially by his loving Family.
    God Bless You Joe!
