Joseph A. DiPietro, M.D.

BRONXVILLE- Joseph A. DiPietro, M.D., beloved husband, father, son, brother, and physician, passed away on April 3, 2020 at the age of 72. Dr. DiPietro, a longtime resident of Bronxville and Jupiter, Florida, was born to Concetta (Connie) and Joseph DiPietro in New Rochelle where he grew up in a loving, nurturing home with his sister Maria and a close-knit, extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins nearby. After graduating with Honors from Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, he attended Boston College, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology cum laude and a Distinguished Service Award for tutoring and counseling fellow students.
From an early age, Joseph knew that a career in medicine was his calling. He realized his dream of becoming a physician by earning a medical degree from Loyola University Chicago, followed by training in New York City which included a general internship at St. Vincent’s Hospital, a residency in psychiatry at Metropolitan Hospital, and a dermatology residency at New York Hospital – Cornell Medical Center. For 38 years, Dr. DiPietro was a well-respected and much loved Dermatologist with offices in New Rochelle and Bronxville. His large practice was a diverse one, with patients ranging from newborns to the elderly. A compassionate physician devoted to his patients, Dr. DiPietro formed enduring friendships with many of those he treated, who sent their children and grandchildren to him for care. He also shared his time and skills with the community by volunteering in annual melanoma/skin cancer screenings and serving on the Westchester County Board of Health. To Dr. DiPietro, it was a privilege to treat others, regardless of their ability to pay, and he considered his profession to be a most noble one. He was particularly proud to be a Dermatologist.
A man of vast interests, history was one of Dr. DiPietro’s passions. As a third generation member of the Guardia Lombardi Society of Mt. Vernon, he was committed to his heritage and researched the Italian-American experience in local areas. This culminated in a book he wrote, The History of the Italians in New Rochelle, that is in various libraries. Throughout his life, Dr. DiPietro was a member of numerous other clubs and organizations such as The American Academy of Dermatology, New York State and Westchester County Medical Societies, New Rochelle Rotary, National Italian American Foundation, Larchmont Shore Club, and the New York Athletic Club.
Nothing, however, compared to his profound love of family. He delighted in celebrating holidays and special occasions with his wife and children, parents, sister and her family, Frank, Robert and Dr. Stephen Massimi. His greatest enjoyment came from being with his loving wife, Mary-Lynne, and cherished sons, Joseph and Stephen. Whether they were traveling the world together and creating wonderful memories, attending school events, or spending time in Jupiter, he was at his happiest with them. Dr. DiPietro admired their talents and took great pride in their personal, academic, and professional accomplishments. His sons, the joy of his life, are his legacy. They possess the same deep faith, keen intelligence, warm heart, and unwavering determination that defined their father. Dr. DiPietro touched countless people and his passing leaves a huge void in the lives of his loved ones. Although gone, he will never be forgotten.
In addition to his wife and children, he is survived by his devoted father Joseph, his adoring sister Maria (Frank) Massimi, and many sisters- and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins who will miss him dearly. He was predeceased by his beloved mother Connie, who together with Joseph’s father, provided a lifetime of love, guidance and support. Viewing is private at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons in New Rochelle, followed by interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, New Rochelle. A Memorial Mass celebrating Dr. DiPietro’s life will take place at St. Joseph’s Church , Bronxville at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making a memorial donation in Dr. DiPietro’s honor to Boston College. Checks should be payable to Boston College and please make sure to write “In Memory of Joseph A. DiPietro MCAS ’69” in the memo section. They can be sent to: Boston College, Office of University Advancement, Cadigan Alumni Center, 140 Commonwealth Ave., Chestnut Hill, MA 02467.
