Joseph V. Agius

He was called to the Lord and is now at peace. Joe leaves behind his wife of 52 years Dawn; sisters Rose (Sam) Bidkaram and Carmelina Sanford; brothers Larry (Georgianna) and Frank (Terry); his brother-in-law Charles (Debora) Cantando who gave him loving and tender care in his final weeks and many nieces and nephews.

Joe was born in Birkirkara, Malta to John and Giulietta on Easter Sunday. He had a happy childhood until June 1940 when the bombs started falling on Malta. A very trying time for him and the family, but thankfully they all remained safe.

Joe and family immigrated to the U.S. in 1950. He attended Lincoln High School in San Francisco, San Francisco City College and San Francisco State University. He served in the U.S. Army and became a U.S. citizen in 1960. He met Dawn in 1960 and they were married in 1962. He was very loving, kind and generous to all.

He will be dearly missed and will remain in our hearts forever.
