Forty days short of his 100th birthday, we bid farewell to our Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather and friend, Joseph P. Remiker, who passed away peacefully Sunday, October 22nd at the Felician Village, Manitowoc, where he resided for 5 wonderful years.

Joe was born Dec 1st, 1917, the son of Joseph and Mary (Stefl) Remiker in rural Reedsville. Joe lived in the house in which he was born until age 95. He was a dedicated farmer, happily retired landowner and long-time parishioner at St. Patrick's, Maple Grove and Holy Family Catholic Church in Brillion. He partnered with his wife of 70 years, Mary (Konop) to build a remarkable life of hard work, faith, and fun for themselves and their family. He enjoyed his church involvement, woodworking, dancing and relished every Packer win. He maintained his appetite for current events, books, and crossword puzzles to his last days as well as his eagerness for conversation.

He is survived by 5 children, 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Son Ron (Joni) Remiker of Post Lake, WI and their children Ross (Kris) Remiker (Leah, Joe, Lexi); Wendy (Joel) DeNamur (Brenna, Samantha, Ali, Jack), Ryan (Jen) Remiker (Colin, Macy); Robb (Melissa) Remiker (Leighton, Essie); Adam (Pam) Remiker; Zachary (Allie) Remiker (Aiden).

Also survived by brother-in-law and sister-in-law Jim and Pat Konop, cousins and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife Mary (2013), his parents, his in-laws Charles and Emma Konop, brothers Ed (Laura, Mary), Herb (Kathryn), Elmer (Marie), Vic (Gert) Remiker and a sister Mary Dorothy (Herbie) Hastreiter.
