Birth: Feb. 22, 1925
Death: Jul. 7, 2007

Joseph William DeBisschop, Sr. Saturday July 7, 2007.

Beloved husband of the late Grace and Doris DeBisschop; loving friend of the late Margaret Bambei, dear father of Joe Jr., Steven (the late Susan), James (Alice) and Bonnie DeBisschop.

Dear grandfather of Steven Jr. (Karen), Christopher, John (Tracy), Jessica and Abby DeBisschop; dear great-grandfather of Cody, Michael and Grace DeBisschop, dear grandfather-in-law of Shannon Scott, dear brother-in-law of Shirley Held and the late Roy Hellon, dear cousin of Richard (Aleda) Tissell, Shirley ( the late Arthur) Hilbert and the late William (surviving Rita) Kalin; our dear uncle, cousin and friend.

Joe was a retired Sergeant with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, having served the City of St. Louis for over 37 years.

His assignments consisted of the 3rd District, Canine Division, instructor at The Police Academy, Television Section, 2nd District, Communication Division, and the Correspondence Investigation Division.

He served 3 years in the United States Navy during World War II.

Joe was an avid bowler.

Joseph will be missed dearly by his family and all those who ever met him.

Special thanks to the nursing staff at Delmar Gardens Valley Nursing Home where Joe was suffering from Alzheimers. Even though the effects of Alzheimers disease diminished his memory, he still recognized his family and was also able to share his police experience with the nursing staff at Delmar Gardens.The staff at Delmar Gardens treated our father, like he treated everyone in his 82 years, with respect and dignity.

We will forever miss this great man. May he rest in peace.
