October 22, 2004

Joseph Vincent Bianca, a retired advertising service clerk for The Sun, died of leukemia complications Oct. 15 at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Westminster resident was 65.

Born in Baltimore and raised on Cordelia Avenue in Pimlico, he attended Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School and served in the Army from 1961 to 1963.

In 1965, he became an advertising clerk at the newspaper and assisted with proofs for advertising layouts. He retired in 1999 on a medical disability.

Friends recalled Mr. Bianca as a stylish dresser. He enjoyed attending horse races at Pimlico and playing the gaming tables in Atlantic City, and he watched Baltimore Ravens preseason football practices in Westminster.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered Wednesday in Westminster.

Survivors include two sisters, Rose Marie Yost of Sykesville and Lucille M. Jones of Westminster; four nieces; and four nephews.
