Joseph (Joe) Samuel Corsica Jr.

Joe passed away peacefully on February 15, 2020 at his home in Rock Hill, South Carolina at age 83 years old. His last days were spent surrounded by his loving family and friends.

Joe was born on January 31st, 1937 to Rose (Magro) and Joseph S. Corsica, Sr. A graduate of Hobart College, Joe received his Masters Degree in Social Work and his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from SUNY Buffalo. Joe’s love and compassion for people inspired his career as a social worker with the NYS School for Boys at Industry (DFY) and the Penfield School District. He also served as an adjunct professor at SUNY Brockport and had a private practice.

Joe was an avid skier and was a member of the National Ski Patrol. He enjoyed sailing, restoring wooden boats and wine with friends and family during summers with Judy on Sodus Bay. Joe served as president of the Crescent Beach Association.

He was a devoted family man who was a great friend to those fortunate enough to be part of his life. Joe (otherwise known as Papa, Dad, Uncle Joe and Joey) was always there to help, love and comfort with his wise and gentle manner.

He was pre-deceased by his parents and sister, Helen. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Judith Aubeuf Corsica, his daughters Laura (John) Elder, and Lisa (Mark Belchik) Slavin, grandchildren Michael Antinoro, Jeffrey Antinoro, Lindsay (Tucker) Adkins, Zoe (Dillon McCann) Slavin, and Tristan Slavin. He is also survived by sisters Joanne (Maris) Corsica-Dzenis, and Carol Corsica Dzenis, several nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-granddaughter.

Joe led a very fulfilling life, both professionally and personally. He is loved by his family and the many friends he has made over the years; he will be profoundly missed by all.

A Celebration of Life will occur this summer in Sodus Point, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude’s or Sodus Bay Junior Sailing Association

Dr. Corsica was an amazing man! I remember he gave me his home number when I was going through struggles with my parents. I did call him once during an argument with them. I remember this, like it was yesterday, he answered my call and talked me for at least 20 min. I always felt he was on my side, I wasn't alone, I always had him. He always made me want to do better. He had that way about him. Now as I am adult, I realize what a special person he truly was. He will be missed! ❤️

It was with great sadness that I read of Joe's passing in the Democrat & Chronicle in Rochester New York. I remember learning much from listening to Judy speak of her family and the struggles we all faced balancing family and career. I did not have the pleasure of spending time in Joe's company except for fleeting moments in passing but his grace and warmth was always apparent. May your memories sustain you. Sincerely, Kathleen Nye, retired School Psychologist at Gates Chili Schools.

Oh, Judy my heart-felt sadness and healing prayers for you and your family. Joe was a kind kind soul, never a bitter word about anyone, loving and joyful. I am so glad he came into my life. Thankful he was surrounded by family when he passed. May he sail with all his friends in heaven. XoXo Maxine
