Joe H. FEAR died Nov. 12 at St. Vincent Hospital in Leadville. He was 91.

Mr. Fear was born April 1, 1904 in Salida to Martin and Anna (GORSHE) FEAR, one of 10 children, most of whom preceded him in death.

He met and married Johanna KOLENC in 1927 in Leadville, where Joe worked in the town's smelter operation. They moved a year later to Red Cliff, where Joe worked at the Gilman mine for the next 27 years.

He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and belonged to the KSKJ. He loved cars and doing jigsaw puzzles.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Johanna, who died in 1972, son Lawrence, daughter Johanna, and grandson Michael BECK and a great grandson, Jimmy ROWEN.

Survivors include: son Joe (Patricia) FEAR of Denver; daughters Angela (Buster) BECK of Red Cliff, Gloria HENNEN of Roanoke, Tex, and Christine FEAR of Dallas; his dear friend Julia BOURMAN; brother Henry (Pauline) FEAR of Salida; sisters Lillian WOLFE of Denver, Olga PROPNICK of Bloomington, Calif.; and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

A memorial Rosary and Mass was held Nov. 16 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Leadville, where the Father Tom KILLEN officiated and Joan DAWSON sang, accompanied by Neil V. REYNOLDS.

Joe's ashes have been interred next to the grave of his wife at St. Joseph Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Vincent General Hospital in Leadville or to a charity of choice. Arrangements were by Bailey Funeral Home in Leadville.
