We are so sorry to hear the news of Joe's passing. He was such a nice guy with a big heart. He will be truly missed. We were unable to make his funeral because we were on vacation. We will keep you all in our prayers.

Jeff Shervey

My condolences for all who loved him. As a member of the Sargento family - he will be missed.

Jim Huber

Joe and I were classmates at DeVry and I would come to Sheboygan with him often on weekends. We did a lot of running around Sheboygan, was at many family gatherings and water skied at the Wilke Lake cottage. I have not seen Joe for a number of years, but I will miss him greatly. My condolences to Joe's boys, Kenny, Chuck, Greg, Tom and Anne.

Jennifer Reichardt

My condolences to your family in this difficult time. I worked with Joe at Sargento and he definitely was a wonderful man. Joe was dedicated, hard-working, and respectful of others. Again I am so sorry and hope that your family can cherish his memory.

Judy Woelfel

Tom, Christina, and family, I send my sympathy for your loss. Wishing you peace, comfort, and great memories to keep with you.

Denise ( Pierce) Klumb

My sympathies to the family. Last time I saw Joe was at the class reunion. I don't think he remembered me, but we all changed. Way back I grew up on 33rd St, so I remember his family on Mueller Rd, ( I thought Charlie was cute but that was it ,lol). We took the bus together and at 9th grade dance at Urban Joe asked me to dance, or did my girl friend tell him I wanted to dance with him. Anyways, it was one dance, we were both very quiet back then ( I think). My sympathies to all the family.

Joseph D Blindauer

I didn't know Joseph but was deeply saddened when I came across his obituary. Clearly he had a loving family and you have my deepest condolences.

Christine Marie Renzelmann

My heart is broken. May your children find comfort knowing that you are now reunited with your wife, Debie. May you rest in peace cousin Joe.
