Joseph “Joe” Czarnecki, 75, of Huntersville, North Carolina passed away on August 29, 2021. Joe was born in Jersey City, New Jersey on November 19, 1945, to the late Henry and Mary Czarnecki.
Joe is survived by his adoring wife of 23 years, Elaine Czarnecki; his twin brother, Henry Czarnecki, and sister, Maryann Czarnecki. Joe was a beloved uncle to his wife’s side of the family and is survived by three generations of nephews and nieces.
Joe’s career in education spanned five decades. He earned a PhD in Reading/Education in 1981 from the University of Maryland and was a classroom teacher, principal, and Coordinator of Reading and English/Language Arts for Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Joe was a national literacy consultant for many years. He helped to instill a love of reading in countless children, while also helping teachers to improve their literacy instruction. He most recently applied his love of teaching to giving sailing lessons on Lake Norman for the Carefree Boat Club which brought him great joy.
Joe had a true passion for life-long learning and enjoyed many hobbies and interests including travel, boating, running, cars, photography, carpentry, reading, and playing the guitar. He loved home improvement, and friends would always ask about Joe’s current and “next” project, as he always had one at the ready. Joe took pride in everything he did, loved and valued his family and friends, and cherished his wife, Elaine. His was truly a life well-lived.
A celebration of Joe’s life will be held at a future date.
