Joe was a man of kindness and integrity. A devout Catholic, he was a member of St. Mary’s Parish in Hales Corners for 48 years and the president of the first parish council. Professionally he was a foundry executive for many years and was President of Wehr Steel in Milwaukee. A devoted family man he met his wife in the first grade. At age 20 the parish priest cast them as husband and wife in a play and they married two years later. He served in the US military during WWII. He was most proud of what he considered his life work- his 11 children, his 23 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren in whom he instilled his strong moral values.
