Joseph Gemellaro



To all the families and friends at the port authority: Today I received a postcard saying the Port Authority is turning 100. My husband Joseph Gemellaro worked for the Port Authority for many years. He started as an electrician and then became a chief maintenance supervisor. He worked at the Lincoln Tunnel and then later at the Bayonne Bridge,Goethals Bridge, and Outerbridge Crossing. He also was a Union Representative.

Unfortunately he passed away 10 years ago . However, I would like to say as the wife of a Port Authority employee, we had many wonderful years. The Port Authority had family picnics, Christmas festivities, the men played baseball together and had bowling teams.

We made many good friends and enjoyed the parties. As a wife and mother of three children, I felt secure because The Port gave us good benefits and a secure income. I'm sure my husband would have had many more memories and stories. All I can say is thank you for the nice memories.
