Obituary of Joseph David Fecci

Joseph D. Fecci, “Joey”, 26, of Nashville, TN, born and raised in Somers, NY, died Saturday, April 27th, 2024, at Ascension St Thomas Hospital Midtown in Nashville, TN.


Joey was born on October 30th, 1997, in Mt. Kisco, NY to Eric and Patti Fecci, his wonderful parents. He grew up in Somers, NY and graduated from Somers High school before getting his degree and finishing 2nd in his class at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.


Joey was a prodigal chef and quickly became a master of the culinary arts. He worked in three different Michelin star restaurants in NYC and Chicago before, most recently, becoming the Chef de Cuisine at Yolan in Nashville, TN. When he passed, he was in the preliminary process of opening up his own restaurant, which was to be named Bardi, and was going to be a tribute to the region of Italy his ancestral roots came from.


He was a bright light of positivity and inspiration in the lives of everyone he touched. He was always happy, finding joy in every moment, appreciating the art in the fine details of life. His laugh was contagious, and he put smiles on the faces of everyone around him through his positive personality as well as his cooking. He was full of love, and it was the love for the people he planned to feed that translated into his genius in the kitchen. He loved golf, skiing, cheering on his favorite New York sports teams, and most of all sharing meals and a bottle of wine with the people he loved.


Joey is survived by a broken family that treasures and loves him deeply. His mother, Patti, his Father, Eric, his brothers, Nick and Lucas, his girlfriend, Olivia, his grandparents- Adolfo, Anne, Ricardo, and Gilma, as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins that will miss him dearly.

Friends may call at Clark Associates Funeral Home, 4 Woods Bridge Road, Katonah, NY on Friday, May 3rd from 4pm to 8pm.


The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St Mary’s Church, 55 Valley Road, Katonah, NY, on Saturday, May 4th, at 11am.


Memorial contributions can be made to the GoFundMe- “Chef Joey Fecci - Culinary Scholarship Memorial Fund,” establishing a fund for a culinary scholarship. This scholarship will support aspiring chefs who wish to follow in Joey's footsteps and carry on his legacy of culinary excellence.
