Joseph Eugene (Joe) Costello, of Darien, Connecticut, passed away on Sunday, June 25, 2017. His wife and love of his life, Rosemary Peters Costello, beloved son Keane Thomas, and loyal and loving Welsh Springer Spaniels Fiona and Finnegan, survive him. He is also survived by his brother Michael from East Haddam, CT and 5 sisters-in-law and 2 brothers-in-law and 8 nieces and nephews. His brother Jimmy and parents, Alice and Thomas Costello, predeceased him.
Joe was born on July 9, 1958 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York City, where coincidentally, Rosey, his wife of almost 25 years was born 18 months prior. The two shared a running joke that Rosey left a note for Joe in his hospital bassinette saying, “Call me when you grow up.” Joe and Rosey had their official first date on October 24, 1987 at a Japanese restaurant in New York. They were married on September 26, 1992 in Bay Head, NJ and welcomed their son Keane on June 30, 1994. The Costellos moved from New York to Darien in June 1996, closing on their home on Keane’s second birthday.
