Joseph Deluca was one of the victims on Flight 93.
He could have been an artist, his sister Carol Hughes of Belford explained. A series of cartoons posted on the Morgan Web site shows that side of him. They are good-natured drawings featuring "Raymond the Cat," a feline who appears to love cars as much as Mr. DeLuca did.
He was traveling with his companion, Linda Gronlund of New York.
The family knew the couple had a trip to California coming up, but thought they were still away at a car event. In fact, Joseph had gone to a Morgan meet in Massachusetts. His shiny yellow car took a first-place prize, then Joseph came back and caught Flight 93 to California, said his longtime friend Atwell Haines of Succasunna.
As the events of Sept. 11 unfolded, "We kept thinking, we don't have to worry about Joe," his brother-in-law Tom Hughes said. Late that evening, Hughes received a phone call that told him otherwise. 
Joseph DeLuca was born in Newark in 1949 and lived there for 22 years, graduating from Vailsburg High School. He attended Newark College of Engineering and graduated from Jersey City State College . Joined Warner-Lambert pharmaceuticals in 1977. He moved to Ledgewood in 1998.
