Somerville/Medford Remembering Joseph J Reardon Sr.

Reardon, Joseph J. Sr. Of Somerville and Hampton, NH passed away peacefully with his family by his side after a brief illness on Sunday August 14, 2022. He was 81.

Born in Medford and raised in Somerville to the late Joseph E. and Anne (Brown) Reardon. Joseph was a lover of all sports, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. You could find him sitting on the couch listening to the Red Sox games or the Patriots games. If he wasn’t watching one of the games, he would be sitting outside his house and saying hello to everyone who passed by. He was known as the mayor of the street. When he would go to his home in Hampton, he would always be found at the beach with the sand in his toes or riding the waves as they crashed against the shore. Joseph would always play his lucky number at the lottery. Joseph’s biggest pride and joy was his family, especially his children and grandchildren.
