Joseph Robert Armeni

December 23, 1958 — May 13, 2023

 

Joseph Robert Armeni age 64 of Columbus, OH was born December 23, 1958 in Youngstown, Ohio to the late Joseph Armeni Sr. and the late Donna Voorhees Armeni. Joe grew up with a love for building things and a fascination with flying. In pursuit of this passion, he joined the Civil Air Patrol when he was 13 and soloed his first flight at 16. Joe moved to Columbus in 1976 after graduating from Poland Seminary High School. He attended The Ohio State University and graduated in 1980 with a degree in Finance and Real Estate.

Joe entered the real estate business starting with HER Realtors, having already purchased his first rental property at the age of 19. Later, Joseph would work for Ryland Homes, where he would become a top salesman and open his own brokerage firm, ReMax City Center. Joe grew his private holdings, eventually owning over 150 rental units. He was a pioneer in the Short North revitalization starting the 1980s.

In 1989, Joe married the love of his life, soulmate and best friend, Amy Salerno. Together, they raised two beautiful daughters, Alexandria and Christina, to whom along with Amy, Joe would dedicate the rest of his life. Joe loved going to Disney with his family as well as fishing and spending time at the treehouse he built in Hocking County. 

Joe was a lifelong Buckeye as well as a Blue Jackets fan. Joe will be remembered by those who knew him as kind and generous, having contributed to many philanthropic causes throughout his life. He touched countless lives in his time here with us and will be forever missed. He is survived by his wife Amy and daughters: Dr. Alexandria (Andrew Schaak) Armeni and Christina Armeni.
