Joseph A. Lemsky, of Waukesha, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2013, at the age of 55 years.
He was born on Nov. 13, 1957, in Marinette, WI, the son of Glenn and Mary “Pat” (nee Koeppler) Lemsky. Joe married his college sweetheart and love of his life, Patricia M. (nee Gassman) on June 27, 1981.
He was a faithful member of Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, a 1980 graduate of Michigan Technological University and worked as a Metallurgist for more than 30 years. Joe was an avid sports fan, especially for the Green Bay Packers. He enjoyed golfing, hunting with his son-in-laws, yard work and gardening of vegetables, because health and eating right were important to Joe. Working hard with his hands to fix things and helping others made him forthright and trustworthy. Most of all his family remembers him as being; “Kind”, “Gentle” and “Loving”. His “Girls” were the joy of his life.
Joe will be sadly missed by his wife, Patricia of 31 years; parents, Glenn and Mary “Pat”; his daughters, Johanne (Nick) Bennett and Rebecca (Mike) Goodpaster; grandchildren, Hazel Marie and Ambrose David Goodpaster. He is further survived by four brothers, five sisters; dear friends, the Huck and Mayer Families; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
