Joseph M. Camillo

Age 57, passed away peacefully on January 16, 2024 in Pittsburgh, PA. Joe was born in Swisshelm Park, to the late Joseph and Helen Camillo. A proud graduate of Central Catholic High School, Joe went on to play tennis at Robert Morris University. Upon graduating, Joe began his teaching career as the Head Tennis Pro at the Hyatt: Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico. His strong ties to Pittsburgh brought him back to the region two years later, and he has been a well known fixture in the Western Pennsylvania tennis community ever since. Joe was fortunate to spend his life doing what he loved: playing and teaching tennis. Joe’s incredible work ethic, as well as his deep passion for and understanding of the game of tennis, allowed him to make an impact on countless people. Between 1998-2014, Joe was the Women’s Tennis Coach at Duquesne University, and still retains the status as the winningest tennis coach in the program history. Most recently, Joe worked as the Tennis Pro at Green Oaks Country Club, the Director of Tennis for Pittsburgh CitiParks, as well as the Head Tennis Coach for Winchester Thurston School. Joe is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Helen Camillo, and his sister, Natalie Davis. He is survived by brothers, Mark (Sara Jane) Camillo, and David Camillo. Joe also leaves behind his beloved partner, Kristen Hannan, as well as countless treasured friends. He will be remembered for his ability to connect with people, the vibrancy he brought to everything he did, and also for his deep faith, which continued to be a source of strength and comfort for him.
