Joseph A Quattrochi of Beverly, MA passed away on Sept 8, 2012. Born in New Rochelle, NY, he was the son of Joseph and Matilda Quattrochi originally from Sicily.

Joseph grew up in New Rochelle, where he attended Albert Leonard High School and met his future wife Mary Tenore.

Joe volunteered and enlisted in the United States Navy on August 18, 1943. He attended pharmacy school in preparation for his future assignment. Joe was assigned to LST 496 and served as Pharmacist’s Mate . Initial action of LST 496 was Operation Tiger in April of 1944 . This was a practice drill for the future Normandy invasion which unexpectedly ended up seeing battle action.
