Obituary

YORKTOWN - Joseph J. Imburgia Jr., of Yorktown, 67 years of age, died suddenly at home Feb. 29, 2012.
He was born in Wareham, Mass., in 1944. He was the eldest son of Betty Jean Thomas Imburgia King and the late Joseph J. Imburgia Sr.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Susan R. Imburgia of Yorktown; his sons, Joseph J. Imburgia of Yorktown, and David S. Imburgia and his wife, Ange McCormack Imburgia of Grafton; his daughters, Lesley Jeanette Mink and her husband, J.R. Mink Jr. and their two sons, Jacob A. Mink and Caleb J. Mink of Lynchburg, and Mary Christina Miller and her husband, Charles V. Miller IV and their children, Charles V. Miller V, and Kaitlyn Marie Miller of Gloucester; his mother, Betty Jean Thomas Imburgia King of Virginia Beach; his brothers, Samuel Imburgia of Denver, Kenneth K. King, Jr. and his wife, Frances King of Chattanooga; his sister, Jamie Kellam and her husband, Robert Kellam of Virginia Beach; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was proud to serve in the USAF during the Vietnam War, where he served three tours in Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines with the 1st Mobile Communications Group and "Rivet Top." As an entrepreneur, he was the owner and operator of Process Control Services, Ltd., in Seaford, Va., for 30 years. Most recently, he was a senior designer at Whitman Requardt and Associates. He was an active volunteer his entire life, contributing to the community through coaching the Seaford Bulldogs, York County Volunteer Rescue Squad, REACT, MARS, CERT and former VP of the Middle Peninsula Amateur Radio Club (KI4LXT). He was an assistant section emergency coordinator with ARES, volunteer examiner with W5YI as a volunteer examiner coordinator, a member of Hampton Roads Emergency Management Committee, volunteer spotter for the National Weather Service Skywarn system, and a fixture of the Marlbank Cove Home Owners Association for over 12 years. He was a teacher, mentor and friend to many. After decades of continual volunteer service, Joe's likely only regret would be that he didn't have more time to contribute. Joe knew no strangers in his life here. He was quick witted and always ready with a corny joke that never fell flat. His smile and presence will surely be missed by more people than can ever be expressed.
Visitation will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 4, 2012, at Amory Funeral Home, in Grafton, Va. The funeral will follow at 3:30 p.m., with a reception immediately afterward at the Marlbank Cove Clubhouse. A graveside service will be held at noon Monday, March 5, 2012, in Albert G.

Tribute

From Lee Barry on November 14th, 2013
I was going thru the video of the 1963 reunon of the Norview calss of'63 and at the end they were showing at list of people "no longer with us'. I was a graduate of Norview but in 1965. I was a fellow band member with him. While most in the "sousaphone/tuba" section looked down on me and gave a rationing all the time, I was one of those that the Norfolk Ciy School System kept at Norview Jr. for their freshman year of high school, those from other parts of the Norview district were allowed to statrt 9 th grade at the high school year so the thought they were much better than of us who could not. Joe took me under his wing as a senoir band member and because of his kindness I did not quit. He got to meet my family who lived in Fox Hall, my father who owned a sign shop and Joe got along well at the ball games and the one year Joe and my father got to spend together at the Xmas tree lot. You don't actually think about people who you have met back in school, Brent Coltraine was a family friend and a boyhood frien  and then he was gone too soon. At our 45th reunion in 2010, who would've thought I'd live that long, I saw the little cansdles with peoples names on them and then I remembered I was first married to a Camille (Cami) Randolph in 1967-1971 and had heard from my daughter, this is my 3rd. marriage, it has lasted 38 yrs. Guess you just gotta find the right one,huh? that she had died. I told someone there at the reunion and they said they would have a candle for her at the next one. Joe hung around with anoter fellow who also was a senior in1963 and was in the band and he too did the same as Joe did in regards to keeping me in band. Joe once told me "Lee those other guys are scared of you as far as musical talent is concerened, you are so much better than them, and don't think that you weren't well known by our director,Mr.Ricardo, before you came from the jr. high school. He wanted to have you here last year, had you been here last year you would have been the "section leader" and not the jerk who is there, and that is what they have against you' I will always be grateful to what he did for me. I'm just sorry that I never got the chance to talk to him later in life, he must have been a fine person by just reading his credits in his obit. Mine will  not be anywhere near that. Lee Barry Norview Class of '65, but a friend of Joe Imburgia Norview Class of '63. Go Pilots. You may e-mail me if you wish, I'd like to hear more of Joe. My father died in Sept.,1993 and my mother in Sept.,1999.

Sad to see the wit of Larry has left us. I admired his satire and sardonic wit always. My parents of course hated it. When last I saw him, it was the day his wife retired from nursing. He looked elegant and much more dignified than I had ever seen him. His hair was all white and the resemblance to his father was pronounced. One of the most seriously funny men I have ever known. We were friends for almost all our lives and I will miss him for the rest of mine.

From Tim Soyars on May 30th, 2013
I have a rather strange remembrance of Butch which occurred shortly after I move to Norview in 1953.
 
One weekend while in elementary school, Butch knocked on the door at my home wanting to know if I wanted to come out and wrestle. I really didn’t know Butch, but I’d seen him at school, and knew that he lived about four streets away from my neighborhood. I never cared to box, my arms aren’t very long, but I loved to wrestle. My friends and I sometimes wrestled during recess at school. Somehow Butch discovered this, and he wanted to have a go at me.
 
I was always small for my age, but I was usually fearless, so I wrestled with him in my backyard that day. Fairly quickly I got him on the ground and in a head lock. He squirmed and tried to get free but to no avail. Well, soon this became boring, so I let him up and said goodbye. He wanted to wrestle some more, so he could win. I refused and went inside my house, besides I’d already won.
 
I really never got to know Butch since we had different interests and hung with different crowds. We spoke to each other in the halls at school, but we never wrestled again.

From Judy Wright Ivey on September 24th, 2013
Larry Rowe was my cousin. I always admired his sense of humor and pleasant manner. He was just one month older than me. My birthday is in Novermber and his was in October. The year we turned 13, he wrote a letter to me in October bragging that he was a teenager and I wasn't. The year we turned 30, I wrote a letter to him in October bragging that I was still in my twenties and he wasn't.
 
I miss his smile.

My family moved to Norview Heights in 1953. My new neighborhood had about thirteen boys within a year of two of my age, and on my move-in day I met Jack and Bill Duren. They became my playmates and best friends.
 
When you see, speak, play and socialize with a person almost every day for ten years, you get to know them exceptionally well. He was intelligent, athletic, of the highest character and a great friend. We shared many adventures and great memories together. I knew Jack well and cherish every memory. Rest in peace my old friend.

“Mr. Red-Headed Harry Baily”
 
It was in Mr. Matney’s history class in Norview Jr. High that I first met Harry. He was shy and not very talkative, but Mr. Matney was determined to try to make everyone in his class an extrovert.  As I recall, Mr. Matney made class seat assignments and I ended up sitting beside Harry. The teacher gave homework reading assignments and during class period he’d ask questions. At first only a few students would raise their hands to answer, and while Mr. Matney would call on the raised hands, he also called on those who tried to make themselve invisible. Harry was always in the latter group.
 
Mr. Matney called his students by their last name, Mr. Jones or Miss Miller. But when he called on Harry, it was “Mr. Red-Headed Harry Baily.” After a few class sessions, most kids began raising their hands whether they knew the answer or not, but Harry kept his on his desk and Mr. Matney called on Harry often. Our teacher was jovial and laughed often as he addressed the class. Mr. Matney never ridiculed a student for not knowing an answer, but when he called on Harry, he’d begin to laugh and say, “Mr. Red-Headed Harry Baily,” laughing as he said the name, “What’s the answer to the question.” Harry would sometimes know the answer, but he never raised his hand.
 
I really didn’t know Harry very well, but I always considered him a friend. He was a nice guy. Rest in peace old friend.

My sister, Joan Mullen also passed away at age 56 from cancer. Going through this Norview site, I see Wayne Jones has also passed, Charlie was a good  friend and we had so much fun in the neighborhood from preteen to when we moved on.  In particular with this last snow, I remember us kids including Charlie going sleding being pulled on the back of somebodys car in the big snows in Azalea Acres, happy memories. Nice to know he had a good family , wife and kids. I always thought he was an engineer at one of the cities here, don't know why I thought that, but he was always a cheerful one.
