Joseph P. Fiore, MD, age 85, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on November 26, 2022, just four days shy of his 86th birthday.
Joe was born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 30, 1936 to Joseph and Rosalind Fiore. On December 14, 1958, he married the love of his life, Phyllis Bradley.
Joe graduated from University of Southern California in 1960 with a pre-med degree. Joe went on to Georgetown University Medical School and graduated in 1964 with a degree in medicine. He served four years in the United States Air Force before furthering his medical career at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. After completing his dermatology residency at Mayo in 1973, he opened his dermatology private practice, Associates in Dermatology, in Fort Myers, FL, from which he retired in 1993. Finding he wasn’t quite ready to retire completely, he returned to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ and continued there as a senior consultant in the Dermatology department and at the BK Clinic, until 2015. For more than five decades, Joe was devoted to the Mayo Clinic and was involved with education, patient care, mentoring, and development.
Joe loved the mountains of Park City, Utah where he and Phyllis moved in 1999. He was an avid skier, and during ski season, could be spotted on the black diamond ski trails almost every day at Deer Valley Resort.
He is survived by his wife Phyllis Fiore, his daughters, Michele Fiore (David Kitts), and Andrea Fiore Prather, his grandson TJ Prather, his brother Bob Fiore (Suzi Fiore), and many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins who will all miss him dearly.
He is preceded in death by his loving parents Joseph and Rosalind Fiore.
Celebrations of life will be held for Joe at a later date in Park City, Utah and Fort Myers, Florida.
