Mary we are so sorry for your loss. Joe and you shared a love that was incomparable to others.

Candi Hauck

You are a shining light in everyone’s life and touched so many of us with your smile and laughter. A man with the biggest heart with enough love for everyone. You were a fighter until the very end. Your body may have weakened but your spirit NEVER will. No worries, Mary and your family will be taken care of while you watch over from Heaven above. Words cannot express how truly you’re loved and will be missed.

We love you!
Jeff and Candi Hauck
