Guisseppe "Joe" Boccardi was born in San Martino, Italy on July 17, 1941. He was the youngest of 8 children. Joe and his brother Lou came to the United States in pursuit of a better life with the help of sponsors Joe and Lou Parente.
After arriving at Ellis Island, Joe came to St. Louis. There, he worked for the Parente's and with his cousin Bartolino Saracino at Larcino's Restaurant.
Joe now has 3 sons, Ray, Joe Jr. and Mario. Each graduated from University of Missouri. They have been huge part of the restaurant's growth by aiding in the opening of the new locations.
Joe is a man who constantly expresses his gratitude for the opportunity to succeed in this country. He often says "God Bless America" because of the opportunities it has allowed him. Joe has earned the reputation of being a family man and faithful friend to many. He enjoys time with his family, including his 7 grandchildren, and golfing with his friends when he gets the time. He is a generous contributor to the community.
Joe is a member of UNICO, the Sicilian Cultural Association, The Italian Club, The Eureka Jaycess, The West St. Louis Lions Club, the Eureka Chamber of Commerce, and board member of Jefferson Bank. In 2005, Joe was the Grand Marshall of the Columbus Day Parade on the Hill in St. Louis; and in 2008, his three sons were honored as the Grand Marshals of the Parade. This is a great honor in the Italian community.
