Obituary

Carl Joseph “Joe” DePolo, age 82 of Marion, passed away at his home, surrounded by his loving family, on Saturday, May 21, 2022. On February 5, 1940, he was born in Mount Vernon, Ohio, to the late Carl Joseph and Nina G. (Arrington) DePolo, and on January 28, 2005, he married his wife, Kimberly (Gottfried).

Joe proudly served his country in the United States Army from 1958 to 1962, and he later retired from his position as an IT manager at Nachurs Alpine Solutions after 27 years of work. He continued to work as a private contractor for them for 19 years following his retirement. He enjoyed classic cars, car shows, and western movies, and he was a major sports fan, especially when it came to college football or basketball. He was also a member of the Ohio Farm Bureau.
