Joseph Steven Mento, 85, passed away on January 21, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on May 25, 1935 to Frank and Mary Mento of Syracuse, NY. Joseph was a man of faith and integrity. He had a passion for his work and most importantly a deep love for all his family and friends. He always had a smile and enjoyed life with so many friends whom he loved to share coffee and stories with. He also loved big trucks and heavy equipment and was the proprietor of Losurdo and Mento Construction for over 50 years.
