Uxbridge- Joseph W. Brill, 55, passed away on Thurs. Dec. 17, 2020 at his home in Worcester, peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer.
         He is survived by his 2 children, Emily R. Brill, and Samuel R. Brill; his mother, Norma C. (Chace) Brill of Uxbridge, his loving girlfriend and caretaker with whom he lived Valerie (Gerard) Harney; 4 siblings, Edna E. Tetreault of Surfside Beach, SC, Edward T. Brill of Whitinsville, Ellen A. Menesale of Newburyport, James A. Brill of Douglas; his former wife and the mother of his children, Lisa (Frabotta) Silveira of Dudley, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his father Edward Brill.
         Born in Whitinsville on September 25, 1965 Joseph grew up in Uxbridge and was a graduate of Uxbridge High School class of 1983. He worked the past 10 years as a Regional Manager for Cirus Controls, and previously for Altec Co. where he was for many years.
         Straight out of high school, Joe enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He served with great honor for 14 years, 3 of which he was stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where he was also awarded the Navy Achievement Medal. He was onboard the USS Forrestal in the Mediterranean during Operation El Dorado Canyon. Even as a young boy, Joe always wanted to join the Navy and serve his country, in doing so it gave him great pride.
         He enjoyed golfing, visiting the beach, and most of all spending time with his children. He was a very friendly outgoing man who had a great sense of humor. He will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew him.

It was my honor to have known Joe since 2010 and to have been part of the team that hired Joe to work at Cirus Controls. The first time you met Joe, even in a job interview, you couldn't help noticing his combination of knowledge and his infectious enthusiasm. Joe joined Cirus at a challenging time for him and for the company, but we were thrilled with his strong work ethic and his customer centered style.

As the company grew, Joe's skills in our technical area also grew and he took on a larger challenge in a growing sales and support territory. He might not have seen himself as a natural sales person, but his ability to find ways to solve customer problems made him a natural in his dual role. I heard directly from customers many times who saw him go the extra mile to solve problems and deliver value.

Many people know Joe and his quick witted sense of humor. Somehow, he knew when to use the "language of the Navy", and when to use the "language of the workplace", but he never missed the chance to keep us all laughing.

When I spoke to Joe a few short weeks ago, he was clear about the challenges he was facing and focused on his family and their future. Joe was a good man, a committed father and great friend to his colleagues and to me.

He will be greatly missed.

I had the pleasure of working with Joe for the past six years at Certified Power and Cirus Controls. During this time we had numerous conversations about work, life and family. He would beam with pride whenever talking about Emily and Sam, and was so very happy to be with Valerie. We shared many stories and laughs, and enjoyed getting together with our co-workers at team events and meetings. His kind demeanor, knowledge, wit, humor and friendship will be sorely missed by everyone who had the privilege to know him.
