Joseph R. Biagioni, Jr. passed away on September 2, 2014 at the age of 82 in his home town of

Sacramento, California. He married his soul mate, Carol Ann, almost 29 years ago. They were joined at the

heart as if one person. After a tour of duty in the Air Force as a Korean War draftee, Joseph began his

career as an Electronic Technician with the Civil Service at Mather AFB. Later he worked for Aerojet until

retirement. His most prominent position at Aerojet was Director of the Polaris Missile Program (technical

advisor in Scotland). Once retired, he joined Lockheed in support of the nuclear weapons reductions

program (SALT Treaty), specifically Russian weapons. Part of his career took place in Scotland where he

established close ties to James & Connie Cameron, their two daughters Susan & Christine.

Joseph is survived by his wife, Carol; children, Rick (Sandy), Steve (Debbie), James (Lori) Biagioni; Kathy

(Mark) Owens, Damon (Lisa) Frank and Holly (David) Tolbert; 12 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his Mother, Eugenia Isolabella (Tommy) Petersen, Father Joseph R. (Rene)

Biagioni, Sr. and beloved daughter, Aileen Biagioni.

There are no words to express the impact that Joseph had on his family, friends and community. God has

received a patient, loving and compassionate man.
