Joseph "Joe" N. Short, 85, of Sewell, New Jersey, passed away peacefully with his family on Friday, February 2, 2024.


He was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, brother-in-law, and friend. He loved to go on cruises with Dot and take trips to the shore. He also loved going to Ocean City with his family on vacation. His favorite trip was going to Alaska. He also enjoyed fishing. As ornery as he was he always put a smile on your face.


He was the beloved husband of 62 wonderful years to Dorothy "Dot" Short (nee Sage). Devoted father of Ken (Jill) and Donna (Rick). Treasured grandfather of Joanna, Allyson, Ricky (Heather), Matthew, and Kevin. Predeceased by his parents Elizabeth and Joseph Short and siblings Peggy, Betty, and Harry.
