Joseph E. Molus

May 8, 1940 Jan 27, 2014

Joe Molus of Big Bend passed away January 27, 2014, at the age of 73 years. He was born on May 8, 1940, to Joseph and Caroline Molus.

Joe will be missed by his three sons, Joseph (Holly), Matthew and Thomas. Joe has two granddaughters, Alexis and Andrea.

Joe married Karen in 1968; she preceded him in death in 2012, as well as his two sisters, Caroline and Marilynn, and a brother, Lyle. He was also preceded in death by his brothers-in-law Tom, Fritz, Leon, Neal (Tenie), Owen and David.

Joe is survived by his inlaws Patsy (Chuck) Jagunt, Jim (Suzanne) Bourdo, Jane (Bill) Holick, Alvin Bourdo, Lois (Harry) Novak, Mark (Bonnie) and Dean (Gail) Bourdo. He is further survived by sisters-in-law Dorthea, Carolyn, Doris, Geraldine and Robin Bourdo.

Joe worked in the trades as an insulator. He enjoyed gardening and liked to brag he had the first tomato each year. He also got pleasure in canning what he grew. Another hobby was metal detecting and searching for lost treasures. Joe liked being outdoors sitting in his lawn chair, and the warmer the better for him.

A memorial service will be held at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, S89W22970 Maple Ave., Big Bend, on Sunday, March 2, at 1:00 pm.
