Gov. Phil Murphy has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff on Wednesday and Thursday in tribute to Joseph L. Fiordaliso, the president of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, who died on September 6 at age 78.

“For more than three decades, Joe exemplified the finest characteristics of a public servant in New Jersey: selflessly dedicated to the welfare of his local community, fiercely committed to his ideals, and endlessly hopeful for the future of our state,” said Murphy.  “These qualities were on display no more conspicuously than in his leadership of my Administration’s clean energy agenda, which Joe viewed as critical to fostering a more sustainable and healthier state that his children and grandchildren would one day inherit.”

A memorial service for Fiordaliso will be held at the Trenton War Memorial on September 13 at 11 AM, followed by a visitation from 5-8 PM at the Quinn-Hopping Funeral Home in Livingston, where he spent three terms on the township council and three stints as mayor.

A celebration of his life will be held at the funeral home on September 14 at 10 AM.

While Tammy and I mourn this considerable loss alongside Papa Joe’s family – in Trenton and in Joe’s beloved Livingston – all U.S. and state flags will be lowered in honor of his remarkable legacy,” Murphy said.
