Joseph Leon LaPrevotte, 73, of Harrisonburg, passed away on Friday, March 9, 2012, at Rockingham Memorial Hospital.

Joe was born on November 16, 1938, in Elkins, West Virginia, and was the son of the late Paul George and Mary Agnes Erzinger LaPrevotte.

He retired from Shenandoah's Pride dairy after 45 years of service. Being a milkman all his adult life, Joe had tremendous dedication, commitment, passion and loyalty that allowed him to hold many positions with his company.

One of his main tributes was to instill his strong work ethic into his four sons. While he was not hard at work, he truly enjoyed helping his neighbors, hunting, fishing, woodworking, and taking in the joys of life.

Surviving is his wife of 56 years, Linda Wampler LaPrevotte. They were married October 29, 1955.

In addition to his wife, Joe is survived by four sons; Steve LaPrevotte and Laura Harris, of Harrisonburg, Jeff LaPrevotte and wife, Rhoda, of McGaheysville, Jim LaPrevotte and wife, Karen, of Mt. Sidney, and Rick LaPrevotte and wife, Martine, of Cross Keys; a brother, Paul Edward LaPrevotte and wife, Lorraine, of Hinton; his granddaughter, Megan LaPrevotte and her fiance, Brent; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Joe was preceded in death by a brother, William LaPrevotte; a sister, Mary Ann Simpson; and one grandson, Joseph Robert LaPrevotte.

A graveside service will be held at 2pm, Tuesday, March 13, 2012, at Woodbine Cemetery in Harrisonburg, with the Reverend Doctor Aubrey Spears officiating.
