In Memory

 

Joe Shaw
December 27, 1955- April 20, 2018

Joseph T. Shaw, "Joe", passed away on April 20, 2018 at age 62. Born December 27, 1955 in Norristown, Joe was the son of the late Vera (Stock) and Robert Shaw. He resided in Norristown with his beloved wife of 38 years, Laura A. (Werkiser) Shaw. Joe was the loving father of J. Patrick Shaw (Amy) and Lyndsey Haughton (Frank) and was the cherished grandfather of Charlee. Joe was the brother of Bob Shaw, Jim Shaw, Miriam Schlotterer, Steven Shaw, and Mark Shaw. He is survived by many nieces, nephews, and countless friends. After retiring as a manager at Hostess Cakes, Joe became a dealer at the Valley Forge Casino. He was a member of the Montgomery County Baseball Umpires Association Joe was a Grateful "Dead head" and loved going to live music shows. He enjoyed camping and motor cycles, and was a real "people person". Most of all, he loved his family. This man was one of the most incredible human beings I have ever met.  We played together for many years and in the same outfield as a matter of fact. Joe was a great left fielder.  He had to deal with George Tancini, Myself and Stephen Roman as the three outfielders on that team. We had to have played close to 500 games together.  He was always the voice of reason out there with us three crazy Italians.  He kept us focused and always let us know where to throw the ball and how many outs there were.  We won 10 tournaments one summer and the guys on that team to this day remain very close. Joe was always the glue that held us together. He never took sides and always was the one who made us realize it was just a game amongst friends. Joe was the one that got along with every single person.  That is the kind of teammate he was. When he became an umpire, his personality did not change. He never let a game get out of control. He had the calming voice and always knew what to say when things looked like they were going to get crazy out there.  I pitched a lot  when he umpired and he was extremely fair, but the times I enjoyed the most is when I got older and caught all the time.  He kept his professionalism in tact at all times even with me babbling to him and we had many a nice talk.  His wife Laura is a sweetheart and his two kids, Pat and Lyndsey are such incredible young adults now.  There were so many people at his viewing from all walks of life and I have honestly said many times, I have never ever heard of an ill word spoken about Joe Shaw.  I am going to miss the times I saw him and he would have that big smile and say "Hi Stevie". He always made whoever he was with feel important.  He did so many things and many can probably say, he lived a wonderful life albeit much too short.  He was one of the best. God Bless his family. Rest in Peace Joe Shaw.  You will never be forgotten by anybody that knew you. 


 

Lou Simpson
October 8, 1946 - April 7, 2018

Lou Simpson, Sr. was born to the late Louis K. Watson and Ada Simpson Pierce, October 8, 1946 in Norristown, PA. Lou was Ada's only child, whom she adored completely! He was educated in the Norristown Area School System at East Norriton and attended Norristown High School, Class of 1965. Upon graduation, Lou began his career at Zeigler's Stationary as a Truck Driver. He continued his Truck Driving career at Zimmerman's Janitorial Supply Company where he made local business deliveries. He served as a Correctional Officer at the Montgomery County Prison, then re-entered the truck driving field, working for Mirable Beverages in Norristown. He later retired from the US Postal Service after many successful years.  Over the years, Lou excelled in sports, mainly Football and Softball and was always recruited by the local leagues. Between 1967 and 1972, he was scouted and played for several semi-pro football teams, including Sringford Mauraders with his cousin George Fisher and close friend, Luther "Lubby" Abney. During this time he tried out for the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was an outstanding football player and earned the nicknames "OJ" and "Juice". He was a star outfielder for TNT Sports Club of Norristown, a local softball team led by Sonny Termini. Lou was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan who never missed a game. Always seen with Dallas gear, a grin, a bottle of Miller's and his always-present toothpick in his mouth. He was one of the best outfielders in this area. I stood in the outfield next to him and watched him make an unassisted triple play from his Left-Centerfield position. No outs, man on first and second, ran in and made shoestring catch for first out, continued on to touch second base bag for second out and then ran down runner trying to get back to first base.  You had to see it to believe it, one of the most amazing feats of athleticism I have ever seen.  He was the last man in the Norristown League to regularly use a wooden bat.  He pummeled the  middle and was feared by every pitcher that faced him. One incredible person he was.   RIP Lou.


Rich "Cocch" Cocchimiglio
October 27, 1940 - January 15, 2018

Richard Cocchimiglio was born on October 27, 1940 and left this world on January 15, 2018. He was so loved and respected by anybody that he called a friend. "Cocch", as he was mostly called received a "Special Recognition" Award for all he has done for the players in the Lansdale area over the years. Rich played and coached in many area leagues, including Ambler, Norristown and Lansdale leagues, his contributions to softball benefits all players and all leagues in the area. He had a passion for the game and successfully passed that passion onto others throughout the area. We all had that passion as kids but Rich made it possible for us to play out that passion as adults. He put softball on the map in Lansdale having run a league with 30 teams and 2 divisions. He ran this league for over 35 years, starting back in 1967. Getting fields, contracts, and scheduling can be overwhelming, but that didn't stop him. He won 2 fast pitch State Championships and 3 slow pitch State Championships. Softball was a big part of his life and he loved to talk about the game. Many of his contacts from softball are still a big part of his life today as his players loved and respected him. He was most remembered for his Molettiere's Cafe Teams that dominated the Lansdale for years. He won a State title in 1978 with Ambler Sporting Goods fom the old, now defunct Ambler Softball League and also with the team he was most recently remembered for ... Berry Mowing from the old Lansdale League in 1999. He also won the Southeast Area States in 1988 with Molettiere's Cafe. In 2000, he led and sponsored (PA Embroidery) a group of players to the World's Largest Softball Tournament National Championship title down in Atlanta, GA. He also played Fast Pitch and won state titles with in the early 1970s with Nationwide Insurance Company teams of Souderton Area Fast Pitch Leagues. He often put tournament teams together and always asked some of the guys from the Little Brown Jug team to go with his Berry Mowing team. He was fair and played everybody.  He sat with his players and explained their roles on the team. He was one great player's manager and had one of the biggest, kindest hearts I have ever seen. My only regret is that I was always invited to the Berry Mowing reunions and never had the chance to go.  I am sorry I missed the chance to spend time with him after he lost both legs to diabetes.  I hope he is up in heaven and forgives me.  I never met a player that ever played for him that ever said a negative word. He was a good man.
