WAPPINGERS FALLS - Dominick Joseph Reda, 85, an area resident since 1978 and formerly of the Bronx, died peacefully on May 4, 2021 at his home. ‘Jumpin Joe’ was a man with a passion for his family, friends, and NY baseball. He was someone who would do anything for anyone. He had a serious face but a kind and gentle heart, and loved to make people laugh.

Born in the Bronx on April 16, 1936, he was the son of Alfonso and Rosaria (Greco) Reda. Joe was hard working and commuted to New York City for over 20 years to provide the best for his wife, children and mother. Employed as a banker with European American Bank, he was a self-made success by starting as a teller and working his way up to Vice President. An avid New York sports fan, he loved the Yankees, Giants, Rangers and Knicks. Joe was the Great Sandlot Manager. He also enjoyed bowling.

Joe is survived by his rock and loving wife of over 52 years, Paulette (Goldschmitt) Reda; his son, Scott Reda and his wife Jen; his daughter, Karen Braccia and her husband Christopher; and his granddaughters, Aria Rose and Serena Joelle.

Joe touched the lives of everyone he encountered, each with their own story to tell. Please celebrate him by buying someone a cup of coffee, cracking a joke for someone who looks like they need a good laugh, root for the NY Yankees, play some doo-wop music and do the twist, smile every day, have a good meal, and always save your money. When you start to feel sad, remember he is now with some of his dearest friends and family who left this earth before him.
Hum babe, hum boy!

Calling hours will be held on Friday from 2-5pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction.

So sorry for your loss.

I would have loved to meet Joe, we talked on the phone every now and then when he called for my mom (Clelia Di Santo). I loved his cool New York accent and soft demeanor, our conversations will be missed!

Your distant cousin, Marcello Di Santo

Joe was a true friend of my father, Robert Lovelock. He spoke of him constantly and will miss him dearly. My dad would regale me with tales of he and Joe riding the Metra into Manhattan for so many years. I feel as if I knew him through my father. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times over the years. He was a funny, kind, and loving man. God bless Joe and his family.

I was Mr. Reda’s neighbor since I was a kid in 2001 when my family moved to the area. He was one of the nicest guys to have a conversation and get to know. I always felt that he (and Mrs. Reda too!) were always looking out for me. My best memory of Mr. Reda was when I was I high school and I was trying to raise money for a school fundraiser with a friend of mine. We made a bunch of candy apples and Rice Krispie treats and were going door to door around the neighborhood to sell them. The Redas were one of our first stops (of course) and Mr. Reda told me to come back after we were finished going around the neighborhood. Unfortunately we weren’t able to sell all of our supply to meet our goal so we came back to the Reda’s house and they bought our entire supply out- it must have been at least 20 candy apples and even more Rice Krispie treats. Something tells me that Mr. Reda didn’t necessarily need those 20 candy apples haha! I remember that as being one of the nicest things any neighbor had ever done for me. Mr. Reda will certainly be missed. I’ve never been particularly into baseball (I know Mr. Reda always had the games on whenever I would come over) but I plan to root for the Yankees this year in his honor!

Joe and I worked together at 1440 Broadway for 4 years but stayed in touch for over 30 yrs. Always had good times when my husband Dennis and I used to get together with Joe, Paulette, and Joe's friend Phil (AKA Uncle Philly) and his wife to go to dinner. Working with Joe was quite an experience. We could not walk down a street in New York without someone stopping Joe on the street to give him a big hug and greeting. Every year Joe and Paulette would send me a birthday card even when we lost touch with one another. All the people that knew Joe will surely miss him. Our hearts go out to Paulette, Scott , and Karen as well as their extended family for their loss.
