Obituary of Timothy Joseph
Age 73, of Joliet, IL, died Monday, July 9, 2018 at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, IL. He was born December 14, 1944, in Joliet, to the late Dawson and Harriett (nee Morris) Joseph.
Beloved husband of 48 years to Judy Joseph; loving father of Aaron Joseph, Chad (Jen) Joseph and Megan (Josh) Valle; and proud and devoted “Papa” to Logan and Amanda and Colt and Wyatt. Also surviving are his brother, Brian (Cathy) Joseph and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Beverly (the late Ron) Pastori.
Tim, a retired carpenter, was quick to offer a hand whenever needed. He was truly in his element in the outdoors and always looked forward to fish fry’s at the cabin in Northern Wisconsin which may have only been overshadowed by the times spent with his grandchildren, whether going for ice cream or just “hanging out”. He also enjoyed rooting on the Chicago Cubs and Green Bay Packers.
