Joseph ‘Joe’ Fernando Cano

Born on August 12, 1969, in the beautiful city of Madrid, Spain, Joseph ‘Joe’ Fernando Cano moved to the United States with a dream and a vision. On May 27, 2024, Joe went home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Joe was my beloved, my husband, and my best friend.  He was an amazing provider to our three children: Alexis, Joey, and Sophia. I vow to keep his wisdom; guidance and his love ever present in our lives. Joe is also survived by his mother, Judith, and brothers: Charles and Pete, his loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, and countless friends. His expressions of love through his generosity will be cherished in each of us and remembered forever.

As the founder and owner of American GlassCrafters, Joe turned his dream into reality, building a legacy that will continue to inspire and thrive. His passion, dedication, and hard work made a lasting impact on all who knew him.

Joe’s life will be celebrated on Sunday, June 9, 2024, at Frank Patti from 3-7 PM, where we will gather to honor his life. On Monday, June 10, 2024, at 12:30 PM, he will be laid to rest at George Washington Memorial Park. While our hearts ache with his passing, we take comfort in knowing that Joe is now in perfect peace resting at the right hand of our Heavenly Father.

Joe’s remarkable spirit and genuine love will forever remain in our hearts. Though his absence is profoundly felt, his enduring example of devotion, compassion, and dedication continues to inspire all of us who were blessed to know him.

  1. Annie and family I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and the children. Please reach out if you need anything.

  2. Jose,

    you are more than just a Friend to me/us, You were also my Family, Brother, Mentor, Hero, Companion, Partner, Rock, Inspiration, and so much more…. There aren’t enough words to describe what you meant to me and so many others. You impacted SO MANY LIVES in such a positive way and helped so many people. You have the most generous, unselfish and BIGGEST HEART I know, and have taught me so much.

    You are definitely one of a kind and they broke the mold when you arrived 🙂 There is so much to say about the good you and what you have done in life, to make your family proud of you, as we all are, but your actions spoke wonders and showed everyone the good person you are.

    I can’t imagine my life growing up without you, boring for sure, but I do know this, I am who I am because of you and my dad, who is also very proud of all that you have done and become in life. You were part of our FAMILY!! XOXO

    Not sure how I’m going to manage without you, the world lost a great man. You are always in my HEART & MIND forever. This is so hard to grasp, I LOVE YOU & MISS YOU DEARLY MY BROTHER/FRIEND !! XOXO

    It’s been such a great journey, just wish it wasn’t over so soon, so much left for us to do, you taught me so much in life. I hope you smiled and enjoyed it as much as I have. I know we will meet again, we all miss you so very much.

    Your beautiful family is so proud of you and love you so much, everything you did was for them. You are a great inspiration and role model and I know that your legacy will thrive in them and help them survive.

    I will try to make you proud, I know how much you love your family, I will do everything in my powers to look over them and guide them the best I can for you my brother. NO ONE CAN EVER FILL YOUR SHOES!!

  11. Darling Annie and Judy, Carlos and Pete, I am so utterly gutted to have heard this devastatingly sad news. What a lovely man he was. I am sending you all every ounce of my love and prayers at this terribly difficult time. Way way too young. Love you 🥰 so much xxxxx

  12. Annie, Pete, Vieja and Charles

    So devastated to hear the truly sad news. Joe has always been a generous and kind hearted man. If Kevin was writing this he would be commenting except the time he took his spare change to feed Bear Chinese food when they were living together. In all seriousness we both deeply loved Joe, he opened his home to us and gave us so many wonderful memories and experiences, that I will continue to cherish. I will miss not having the opportunity to see him smile when I accidentally run into him at Sangria.

    Lexi, Joey, Sophia

    You have a wonderful father who will continue to be with you smiling down from the heavens above as you continue to make him proud in the days and years ahead.

    Love and Hugs,
    Lisa Morris

  14. Andrea, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the pain that you are feeling at this time. I pray that you and your family find comfort in each other.

  15. There are no words that can describe the grief we all feel about you not being here, it has been unbearable to manage, however, I have chosen to close my eyes during each one of my walks and remember the great times we shared, for I have always believed that life is a miracle that must be cherished and celebrated, I will celebrate yours





  17. Annie, may the Lord comfort you and your children during this difficult time and may Jose Rest In Eternal Peace.

  18. Jose, me siento muy triste por tu partida, eras el menor de los primos, admirable todo lo que hiciste en tu camino, cómo te levantaste, acordándote de todos, repartiendo bondad y generosidad, un dolor incomprensible, TQM, mis condolencias a Annie y sus hijos, mucha paz para toda la familia💔

  19. We’re so sorry to hear about Joe. He was a good man will be missed. We will keep you all in our thoughts and Prayers.

  20. My dear Annie, aunt and cousins.
    I wanted to express our deepest regret for the loss of our beloved José. We would like to accompany you in this sad moment and tell you that we support you from afar. He was a very special cousin and a human being with sensitivity and an incredible ability to help whoever needed it. We are witnesses that it changed many lives for the better and left an important legacy to inspire others to be more human and better people. We remember you with special affection and we have you in our prayers to fill you with strength at this time. We send you a big hug from Venezuela and all our love. Cristina and family.

    With heartfelt condolences,

    Ms. Marilyn Rodz (Nana)

  22. Hi Annie. I am so sorry for the loss of Joe to you and the family. I am a friend of Joe, and I used to fish together with Joe and your son here in NJ. So sorry I could not pay my respects in person, as I had a family obligation on Sunday. You and I met once, on a fishing trip one day, with you and a relative from England I believe. More recently we were trying to get together for lunch this February in Sarasota when I was down there for a wedding, but unfortunately I believe your daughter got Covid that morning. Again, I am so sorry. Joe was such a kind and wonderful person, and gone way too soon.
