Joseph Allen Hurff


He didn’t have any children but Joe was that favorite uncle; even if he teased his nieces a bit. He served our nation in the Army as an x-ray technician and went to work as a mathematician at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland. He assisted in inventing one of the first computers. There was a picture of him with this computer in the Smithsonian. But he was hardly all work: Joe lived on the Chesapeake and water skied; when the cold came headed for the slopes: everywhere from the Poconos to the Swiss Alps.

He is survived by his sister, Audrey Bundens; neices, Jo Anne Penza, Patricia Pappas, Susan Costill and Janet DeVault.
Come celebrate 89 great years Wednesday Jan. 24 5-6 p.m. at Daley Life Celebration Studio where there will be a 6 p.m. service. Donations in his memory to St. Jude Hospital ( will be appreciated.
