Obituary

Joseph R. Kubikowski, 59, a resident of Hopewell Junction for 24 years and previously of Middletown, died on June 2, 2019 at Vassar Brothers Medical Center.

Born on February 16, 1960 in Newburgh, Joseph was the son of Ronald and Christine (Korbelak) Kubikowski and grew up with his family in Monroe. On August 9, 1986 in Chester, Joseph married the love of his life and his forever best friend, Robin Swenson, who survives at home. In addition to his wife, Joseph is survived by his children, Rachael of CT, Matthew of NYC and Sarah of Hopewell Junction; his mother, Christine Kubikowski of NC; his siblings, Laura Leary and her husband Bill of NC, and Greg Kubikowski and his wife Eileen of NJ; his aunt, Terry Flynn-Koontz of NC; his mother-in-law, Sharon Swenson of NY; his siblings-in-law, Gary Swenson of NJ, Sherri Lawrence and her husband John of NY and Amy Swenson of NJ; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Joseph and Irene Gnocchi, who he loved, admired, and adored; and his paternal grandparents, Stella and Joseph Kubikowski.

Joseph started his career at IBM in 1978, from there he worked hard his entire life and ended his career working as a Program Manager for Dell Technologies in Manhattan for 9 years. He also owned his own tax practice, Kube Financial Services in Hopewell Junction which he ran for 35 years. He was a member of the Elks and a member of FBLA, where he held numerous leadership positions throughout his life.

Joe was an amazing man, whose presence would bring joy to everyone he met. He was an avid traveler, and a proud member of the Million Mile Club with American Airlines; he’d been to every continent except Antarctica which was something he was very proud of. He was a wine maker, an amateur chef, a golfer, the best friend and an amazing father. His life motto, and the motto of his family was, “treat people the way you’d like to be treated and hope for half back.”

Calling hours will be held on Friday from 4-6pm with a memorial service at 4pm at McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. Interment will be private at Hopewell Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to American Cancer Society or Alzheimer’s Association. Please visit Joe's Book of Memories at www.mchoulfuneralhome.com.

Donald McCrossen Sr. This a story that validates the notion ...”that there is no such thing as stranger - he or she is simply a friend that you haven’t met yet “. Several years ago , I was sitting on a train after a hard day of work when a gentleman got on and inquired if anyone was sitting in the open next to - I assured him that it was available and he was welcomed to join me. As the train was leaving - starting my hour plus long commute we began to talk.
During our conversation, we learned a lot about each other - for example he asked what I did for a living - I told him that I was CPA - he shared that his brother was a CPA. He told me that he had worked for IBM - and I mentioned a friend of mine “KNAPPER” - he told me he knew Knapper (I learned later that his IBM buddies referred to him as “KUBI”). He mentioned he grew up in Monroe - I told him that my Aunt and her family lived in Monroe - “the Fischer’s” - he replied - you mean Rosie? - I said she might be Rosie to you but she is Aunt Rosemary to me.
Then he told me in a way that we were related - because his CPA brother was married to my cousin Eileen. I was gob-smacked!! We continued our conversation until we arrived at my stop. I told him that I really enjoyed our conversation and I hoped that our paths would cross again sometime. I remember thinking that I felt like knew Joe all my life - that was the kind of guy Joe was. Rest In Peace - my friend.

I was in the same team as Jo and although we only met a few times. Jo had a such a strong personality and character, honest and straight talking who also talked fondly of his family, he will always be remembered by me. It was a pleasure and honour to know him. Jo will be greatly missed by anoyone he worked with.
