He was predeceased by his parents, Lenna and Carl Bolz; three sisters, Mary (Aldin) Gray, Rose Wenzel and Anne (Art) Lees and brother-in-law, Roy Bartsch. Joe was a jack of all trades, farmer, livestock shipper, carpenter and mechanic. He was a “pusher” when something had to be done. Joseph loved spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. In his younger years he was in a marching band and also played in a dance band until he went blind. He was the life of the party, and always enjoyed getting a crowd to laugh with his jokes. He will be missed by all who knew him. The funeral service will be held at a later date.
