Joseph R. Magrone 38, of Easthampton died May 19, 2018 in his home. He was born  June 6, 1979 in South Weymouth the son of Bonita (Bonnie) Taylor Magrone and the late Robert Magrone. He came to Easthampton with his family in 1983, attended local schools and graduated from Easthampton High School Class of 1997. He was employed by WW11 Club of Northampton, and was formerly the bass guitarist for The Justice League and presently played bass for the band Problem with Dragons.
Besides his mother, Joseph is survived by two sisters Marcia Magrone and Holly Magrone both of Easthampton, as well as his close cousins Tony, Sarah, Justin and Leah, and his NJ cousins, Andy, Tim, Zac and Mary, He had a strong bond with his father, who as a child was not only his boy scout troop leader, but also Joe's baseball coach. In his younger years he and his father spent many summers volunteering their time with the Appalacian Service Project. Joe was big into the outdoors and enjoyed kayaking and camping. He was a world traveler, who had visited England, Spain and other countries in Europe. He also had spent a lot of time traveling throughout the US with friends and his band. He was a talented musician and the bass guitar was his instrument, Joe would often ask his sisters what they wanted to hear, and he could play any tune requested on cue. He was a devoted son and his mother's happiness was his first priority in life. He did not live a conventional life, but he lived an important one. He has a place in the heart of everyone who was fortunate enough to have known him. He leaves behind a great number of people who would consider themselves his best friend and even family.
Visiting hours will be Wednesday May 30th from 12 pm to 2pm at Mitchell Funeral Home, 15 Park Street, Easthampton followed by services at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joe's memory can be made to The American Heart Association at PO Box 417005 Boston, MA 02241-7005.
