Joseph (Joe) Abramo, of Indianapolis, IN passed away peacefully in the arms of his dear wife, Jeanette and daughter, Leanne, on December 16, 2023.  Joe was born March 12, 1938, in Montrose, CO.

He spent over 45 years in the mortgage industry, including 25 years with Postal/Security Pacific Finance as a Regional Director. As the son of a shoe cobbler and salesman, Joe also worked at Goodman Shoes and Redwing. He was a creative individual who enjoyed carpentry, painting, and baking homemade bread. He was an avid gardener and birdwatcher and loved cats and dogs, especially Misty, Sam, Misty, and Lina. In his later years, Joe took great pleasure in putting together puzzles and sharing the hobby with friends. He volunteered at Habitat for Humanity and the Hamilton County Humane Society.
