Joseph Primwhere

Joseph Primwhere, of Sea Isle City, NJ died suddenly on Monday, December 27, 2021. He was 73.

He was the beloved husband of 53 years of the late Ann Primwhere, his childhood sweetheart and love of his life, who died March 1, 2020.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of the late Francis and Celeste Primwhere. Joe graduated from Incarnation Elementary School and Cardinal Dougherty High School in 1965, both in Philadelphia.  After graduating high school, Joe enlisted in the United States Air Force and served as a combat crew member in Vietnam. After being honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant in 1968, Joe began his 43 year career as a SEPTA mechanic and later a Business Agent for Transit Workers Union Local 234. Joe was an active member in his community and a beloved football and baseball coach for the Olney Eagles Youth Organization, Olney Midget and Teen League, and St Helena’s Parish.  In 1995 Joe and Ann moved to Perkasie, PA and later to Sea Isle City in 2014.         

Joe, affectionately known as PaPa Joe, was a kind and loving gentleman, husband, father, grandfather, coach, and friend.  An avid Philadelphia sports fan who loved to listen to the Phillies on his transistor radio while sitting in his back yard or on his deck overlooking the ocean.  He spent many happy days at Sea Isle City’s VFW and Commodore Club surrounded by good friends who grew to be part of his extended family.  Joe enjoyed spending time with his family at the shore.  He loved sharing stories of his life experiences with his grandchildren, and entertaining family and friends. Above all, Joe loved spending time with his wife, Ann, who left him way too soon. We know that Joe and Ann are now reunited on their heavenly deck overlooking the ocean.  There is no doubt that he is bringing Ann her morning coffees and holding her hand once again.  

He is survived by his children, Carolyn Molloy, and her husband Patrick of Chalfont, PA, William Primwhere and his wife Angel of Perkasie, PA, Pamela Stolzer and her husband Chris of Quakertown, PA and sister-in-law, Joyce Hengy of Warminster, PA.  He is also survived by his seven grandchildren, Nicholas Molloy and his wife Hannah, Edward Molloy, Ashley Primwhere, Hailey Primwhere, Hannah Primwhere, Brooke Primwhere and Max Stolzer and his two great-grandchildren; Jack and Iris Molloy.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend his viewing from 5:00-8:00 PM Monday, January 3, 2022 at St. Jude Church, 321 West Butler Ave., Chalfont, PA 18914 and to his Funeral Mass on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 at 11:00 AM at St. Jude Church.  There is not a morning visitation prior to the mass.

His interment with Military Honors, will be held privately at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery, Newtown, PA.

With concern and caution for the family and friends attending, masks will be required while in the church for the viewing and for the Funeral Mass.
