Joseph V, Tessier Jr. 56, of Plymouth passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on Sept. 4, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Boston, he was the son of the late Joseph and Judith (Duffin) Tessier. Joe attended Brockton Public schools before spending over 30 years at Shaw’s Supermarkets where he worked as a Produce Manager.

From ski trips up north and days spent on the beaches of Cape Cod with friends in earlier years to camping trips and vacations with his family, Joe embraced adventure and good times wherever he would go.
Joe was devoted to his family and his greatest joy was time spent with his wife and daughters who were the light of his life.
Joe was the loving husband to Cheryl (Twombly) and the proud, adoring father of Sarah and Melissa.
