Joseph F. Huda, 84, affectionately known as "Joe Pie" and a lifelong resident of the Youngstown area, passed away on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. He was born on June 21, 1938 in Youngstown, OH to John and Mary (Martinko) Huda.

He graduated from East High School in 1956 and served in the U.S. Army. In 1969, he married the former Michaelyn Datko. He worked for 10 years in retail at Sears, Roebuck & Co. Joe later went into business for himself and was the original owner of the Act I Scene II Lounge on the Upper Southside of Youngstown. Several years later he opened and owned the original End of the Tunnel Lounge in downtown Youngstown where he spent the next 25 years before retiring in 2005.

Joe was well-known for his smooth singing voice. He loved going out dancing, golfing, fishing, working in his yard, and being an avid Ohio State, Cleveland Indians, and Cleveland Browns fan. Joe had a great life. The next time you raise a glass you can say, "Here's to you, Joe Pie!"

He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 53 years, Michaelyn, and sons, Brian (Michelle Amadio) of Youngstown, Bradley of Lakeville, MN, Tracy (Shellie) of Jacksonville, FL, and Christopher of Columbus, OH; grandchildren, Riley and Jory Huda of Minnesota, and Breaunna of Columbus; and many nieces and nephews--all of whom Joe loved dearly. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, John Huda, and sisters, Mary Agnes Dudash and Irene Kollar.

As Joe requested, there will be no service or calling hours.
