(303) 674-7750 Helping During a Time of Loss

Joseph C. Falco

July 14, 1966 - August 14, 2018

Joe C. Falco, age 52, of Evergreen, CO passed away August 14, 2018.

Joe was a man loved by many and who loved deeply. A family man first, he gave all he had to his wife Christy and daughters Carolyn and Jacqueline. His infectious smile and integrity left a legacy of friendships across the globe.

The son of Michael and Sofia Falco who had immigrated from Argentina, Joe was born in ­Amsterdam, New York.  During his high school years, he moved to South Florida with the entire family and ultimately attended Barry University where he earned an undergraduate degree summa cum laude in finance and accounting. He then earned his MBA from Florida International University which he would apply to a diverse and rich career.

Joe lived a life of hard work with an impeccable work ethic. His first job was at Coopers & Lybrand and he eventually landed at Costa Cruise Lines in Miami where he worked for 16 years. Joe rose in the ranks to Vice President of Sales Development and was instrumental in the company’s successful worldwide cruise business. As a handsome bachelor living in South Florida at the time, Joe’s single life came to a screeching halt when he met native Miamian Christy DuBois in 1993. They married in 1995 and began their married life together in Miami where their two daughters were born and where they made lifelong friendships.

Joe’s career led them to Ft. Myers, Florida, to Chattanooga, Tennessee and finally to Denver. In each city, Joe made his mark as a financial wizard in the role of CFO in the real estate, senior living facilities and investment industries. And, he made deep and dear friendships. Joe wore his heart on his sleeve as a kind and giving person – he knew no strangers. Joe drew people into his passions for the University of Miami, the Miami Dolphins and the NFL, the NHL, Wilco, hiking, mountain/road biking and skiing. He was a man of strong political beliefs and was honored to serve in the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign in Jefferson County, Colorado.

Everyone who knew Joe knew his true love was his family – his immediate and extended family, all of whom he was fiercely proud of and unabashedly, regularly boastful.

Joe is survived by his loving and beautiful wife Christy, his smart, stunning and red-headed daughters Carolyn and Jacqueline. He also leaves behind his amazing big sister Angela M. (Falco) Peterson, and his big, little brother Michael G. Falco and his wife Andria.  Joe was preceded in death by his father Michael and mother Sofia.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to his children’s college fund at Falco Family Fund

    I am very to sorry to learn of “CFO Joe”‘s passing. I worked with him briefly in Chattanooga, TN. He was such a fun-loving guy who never seemed to meet a stranger. My deepest sympathies to the family.

    What a grievous shock to learn of Joe’s passing and at such a young age. I was honored to have worked with Joe at Costa and considered him to be one of the most enlightened managers with whom I ever had the pleasure of working. Oddly, I have thought of Joe almost every day when I put on my socks. We were playing volleyball during a sales meeting and he came over and pushed my socks down to avoid my looking like a nerd with them all pulled up tight. It was just a tiny example of how he could always help people. Now, every day I put on my socks, I will think of him kindly.

    With profound sympathies,

    Bill Chambers

    Dear Christy:

    I am crying as I write these words. I cannot imagine the loss and pain you must be feeling right now. You may not know that I reconnected with Joe earlier this year. You already know what I am going to tell you, that he was a great guy. Even as a bachelor it was great to have him as a neighbor. Michele and I both are very sad about this news and wish we could do something to ease your pain and the loss your daughters must be feeling. Know that many people loved him and thought very highly of him. May you find comfort in G-d, family and friends during this difficult time. With deep sympathy,

    Michele and Mark Stein

    So sorry to read this in the Chattanooga Times. I worked for the Preston family in Chattanooga and also did the custodial work at Century Park. My thoughts are with the family in this time of grief.

    I just heard about Joe’s passing and wanted to reach out to you and your family in this difficult time. Although we have not been in touch the last few years I have very fond memories of Joe and of our friendship with both of you. Please know that I will keep you and the girls in my thoughts and will send you warm and positive healing vibes from Miami. Hang on to the girls and your memories of Joe and allow your support system to get you through this difficult time.

    With deepest sympathy,

    Liz and Brian Stack.
