Miele, of Howard Beach, was a retired Navy Captain, and a “man of many talents,” according to Borough President Helen Marshall. “He was my dad,” said Joel Miele, Jr. “He meant to much to so many people. He never said no to anybody, never said he couldn’t do anything, it was very hard to get him to take time for himself.” Throughout his long career, he served on the Photo Courtesy Dominick Totino Photography Queens Library Board of Trustees, was Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection, Commissioner of the Department of Buildings, served as the Queens representative on the Department of City Planning, chair of Community Board 10 for over a decade, and served on a number of additional boards including Queens Public Access Television. “Miele was a man of many talents who used them all to serve Queens and the entire city of New York,” said Marshall. “His knowledge, know-how and can-do attitude were evident in all of the many posts he held during his career.” Arrangements were handled by the Quinn Fogarty Funeral Home in Flushing. Internment was at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. “We owe him a great debt of gratitude for devoting his time, talents, knowledge and energy to help make our borough and city better,” said Marshall. Miele is survived by seven grandchildren, one brother and two sisters. BY ANGY ALTAMIRANO email@example.com Get ready to start hoppin’.
