Berlin – Joseph P. Harrington, Sr. passed away peacefully at home on Monday, January 18, 2021 at the age of 60. Born in Bennington, VT on April 5, 1960, he was the son of Albertine “Tena” Harrington and the late William Harrington of Petersburgh.
Joseph grew up in Berlin and was a 1978 graduate of Berlin High School.
Following graduation he worked as a dispatcher for the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Department for nearly 20 years. He also worked as the “Manager” of The Bridgeway in Cherry Plain, as a Machine Operator at Green Renewable in Berlin, and was a past member in the Berlin Fire Department. When not at work, Joseph enjoyed camping and spending time just hanging out with his boys. Nothing brought him more happiness than his pride and joy; his grandson Kayden.
