Des Moines

Marion Joseph “M.J.” Genovese, Jr., 69, passed away at his home on Monday, May 15, 2017, after a battle with COPD.

M.J.’s passion was horticulture and botany. He worked in landscaping and many of his projects were for golf courses, which in turn helped to spark his passion for golfing.

He is survived by his daughter, Janiece Genovese (Brandon Brady); granddaughter, Olivia Lewis; son, Christopher Genovese; parents, Marion Sr. and Janis Genovese; and a host of extended family and many loving friends.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Stephen Genovese, Sr. and his niece, Amy Genovese.
