Joe was born and raised in Scranton, PA before moving to East Orange, NJ. He was the son Joseph and Frances Theobald (Mackin). A graduate of Our Lady of the Valley High School, he was a Korean War veteran before earning a bachelor's degree from Seton Hall University. He settled in West Caldwell, NJ with his beloved wife, the late Bernadette (Boutillier), and together they raised their family of six children.

Mr. Theobald was a professional in the heavy-construction industry, building roads, bridges and tunnels. He was a superintendent with Schiavone Construction Co. in Secaucus, NJ for many years before his retirement.

He was predeceased by his beloved younger brothers Robert, Eugene and Donald.

Surviving are his devoted children; Joseph and his partner Debra and daughter-in-law Carol (Cousins); Charles and his wife, Inja; Bernadette Gillick, and her husband Steve; Michael and his wife, Joann; Mary Moreno and her husband, Mark; John and his partner Paul and daughter-in-law Sharon (Martin); dear brother, Rev.

Joe was a daily communicant at St. Al's, so if so desired, donations in Joe's memory to the St. Aloysius Food Bank would be deeply appreciated.
