veteran Atty. Joseph B. Manello

Died on February 17, 2017, after a short illness. Dear husband of Bernice (Niecie) who died over a year before. A well known and respected Boston lawyer, most recently Of Counsel to Seyfarth Shaw LLP. In 1976 he was one of the founders of Goldstein & Manello. He was active in many local and national charities, having served as an office of Combined Jewish Philanthropies, the Jewish Family and Children’s Service, and as a trustee of Emmanuel College, Beth Israel Hospital, and United Community Services. He has also been president of the Wightman Tennis Center. He is survived by his brother, Seymour, and three children from a previous marriage.

A graveside service will be held on Monday, February 20, 2017, at 11:00 at Temple Israel Cemetery, 492 North Avenue (off of Route 128), Wakefield, Massachusetts. Following the service, friends are invited to attend a reception from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Aura Restaurant in the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center, 1 Seaport Lane, Boston.

Joe Manello had a firmness of personality that on occasion lifted to reveal unexpected tenderness. Always proper, one might say that he was set in his ways only to be surprised by an unconventional insight. A seemingly bottomless source of legal knowledge, with a deep interest in history, he could be equally absorbed reading mysteries and thrillers. For relaxation he turned his close observation of the world to photography, combining aesthetics with the technical mastery of the darkroom. What was without doubt was his devotion to his wife Niecie. She was the sun around which he revolved. His courtliness was matched by her wit and warmth. Together they were fully formed, fully engaged, always on point. A grand piano has the capacity for a vast range of sound: Joe chose to play a few deep chords well, not getting distracted by what was not critical to his professional life or incidental in his personal life. Not a man who sought to be loved, he was beloved by his colleagues and his friends who will both miss him and be glad for knowing him.
