October 15, 1942 - July 9, 2021
It is with profound sadness that Joseph Ralph Renzi of Pittsfield passed away peacefully on Friday, July 9, 2021, after a long illness. Joe leaves behind his beloved wife, Carolyn Guachione Renzi, with who he recently celebrated his 58th wedding anniversary. Joe was born on October 15, 1942, to the late Joseph Renzi and Delphine Rhinehart Renzi. He leaves behind his children, Darlene Renzi (Bill Hover), Joseph Renzi, and Jeff Renzi (Naroth), his daughter-in-law Leslie Renzi, and his adored granddaughters, Natalia M. Renzi (Sean) and Gianna G. Renzi (Jake). Joe is also survived by his sister Susan Renzi and brother Anthony "Corky" Renzi and is also survived by his brothers-in-law Glenn Guachione (Debra) and Roger Guachione (Pam). He leaves behind many nieces and nephews who loved him dearly. Besides his parents, Joe was predeceased by his in-laws, Charles and Viola Arpante Guachione, and his beloved brother-in-law Daniel C. Guachione. Joe was a 1960 graduate of Pittsfield High School, and he was proud to have never missed a class reunion. After graduation, he worked side by side with his brother Corky, for 42 years, in their businesses, including CRT Inc., Transport the People, and Anthony's Auto. Joe was a proud member of the Pittsfield Chapter of the Elks Club, the Polish Falcons, UNICO, the Italian American Club, and the East Side Men's Club. In his leisure time, Joe loved to golf, and travel, especially taking cruises with his family. His home away from home was in Lake George. He loved watching all New England sports teams and was a dedicated follower of his family's involvement in sports. For over 50 years, Joe looked forward to going to the auction every week to look for cars to please his many customers. Joe will always be remembered for helping others and never saying "no" to anyone. His contributions extended far beyond family and friends and deep into the community.
