Joseph D. Abrass, of Atlantic Beach, FL, born on February 2, 1942, in Toledo, Ohio, peacefully passed away on Sunday, March 17th, after a short illness. He was the beloved son of Joseph P. Abrass and Helen (Mierzejewski) Abrass. Joe was predeceased by his parents and brother, Norm Abrass.

Joe is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Linda Abbe Abrass. A devoted father, he leaves behind his children, Steve Abrass (Suzette), and Jill Easton (Mac). Additionally, he was a cherished grandfather to C.J. (Sydney) and Ben Easton, Abbe (Colin) Brooks, as well as Megan and Mallory Abrass. Joe recently welcomed his first great-grandchild, Oliver Joseph Easton, who bears the middle name of 'Joseph' in his honor.

He served in various locations including Toledo, Detroit (Southfield), Tampa, Palm Harbor and Atlantic Beach before retiring in 2007.

In retirement, Joe found purpose in giving back to his community. He dedicated his time and energy to volunteering at Mission House, BEAM, and K9s for Warriors in Jacksonville, leaving a lasting impact on those he served. He was also an active member of the Exchange Club.
