From pranking the others with a laxative-laced cake, and even going so far as to name his dog “Fart,” ” the funny man worked as a library assistant at the Yale Law School Library, for the creation of a grand plan to have a friend for life, Ronny Kaiser and Johnny Olson to join the Navy and explore the world together.

“Their plan was foiled, and the three were split up when Joe drew the long straw and was assigned to a desired base in the Bermuda islands, where he worked with the Seabees’ construction battalion,” the author wrote the details of her father’s military service inspired a life-long dedication to his country and to the community. Later in life, Joe served as a town constable, volunteer firefighter, crossing guard, public works, snow plow, it’s official, the ambulance and the members of the association, and is a proud member of the Antique Veterans of Meriden guard.

A “self-taught” a chemist, Joe has worked at Cheeseborough-Ponds, producing over there, he met his future wife, Irene, who was said to be “hoodwinked into thinking he was a charming person, and with decorum.”

“Boy, was she ever wrong,” Russell joked. “To this day, we don’t know how he convinced my mother, an excellent wife, and a pillar of her church, sewing, and the making of the colorful costumes and props which he used to his antics.”

For example, the couple welcomed three daughters, Michelle, Eline and Peter, who agreed that it was to grow up with its father, there was never a dull moment in their household.

In his youth, Joe was on his plan with two friends in the Navy and see the world. During his time in the military, Joe was assigned to Bermuda, and worked with the “Seabees”, the construction of the rifle.


The devoted dad was going to let the girls do his hair and make-up, caring for their doll furniture and kitchen play, and a lot of them build forts in the back yard.

When the girls grew up, started dating, and their protective father is out to greet their suitors, “by their license plate number, and check for bald tires.”

“If your vehicle passes the inspection, they were invited to the house, with shotguns, harpoons, and feed my sheep. “nutters” were a link to see it,” the author said.

As well as for its one-of-a-kind personality, Joe never met a dog he didn’t like it, is often a treasure-hunt in the Essex Dump, and came to be known as a “perfect napper”, who has been blessed with the unique ability to get to sleep on a road, restaurant or a friend’s house in Essex.”

Joe was by his wife, Irene, and brother, Bobby, and pet fish, Jack. According to Russell, the family was surprised to find that the water is a living being in the freezer last week.

Left to squabble over his fortune and real estate holdings, and the “treasures” of the World, man leaves behind his three daughters and their spouses, and eight grandchildren, all of whom, he hoped that he had learned “at least one of them to say” okay.


He is also survived by his brothers and sisters, Pat, Richard and Kathy, and two sisters-in-law and 14 nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family is referred to early for that, “donations to offset the cost of publishing a very long memory,” would Joe be angry. The family is invited for a cup of coffee with a friend, and the best is the Joe’s, or even play an “innocent prank on some unsuspecting sap,” in his honor.

More seriously, the family-Heller’s has been the collection of donations to the Seabee Memorial Scholarship Association is their loved ones that credit.

As for the funeral arrangements, and a visitation will be held on Thursday evening, complete with a “light ” dinner”, as Joe felt that he “is not a get-together was complete without the food.”


“Feel free to be as late as you want, and if Joe was never on time for anything because of the aforementioned sleeping habits,” Russell joked, advising participants to “dress comfortably,” as well as “Joe and despises formality and tightness of the chest, and it would really be ticked off if you showed up in a suit.”

More specifically, the family encourages wearing the most inappropriate T-Shirt you will be comfortable in the public, having regard to the” beloved father and grandfather used to do.


“Joe, facing his death, and his death, just as he did with his life, in the face, they often tell us that when he was dead, to dig a hole in the yard and just roll it in,” the author continued. “Much to his disappointment, he will be buried with full military honors (and maybe Jack) in addition to his wife, on a Friday.”

In the days after Joe passed on, Monique, told WFSB that the news of the humorous obit has been spreading all over the country and the world, and the family has been flooded with condolences and well-wishes from dozens of people they’ve never met any of them. Many have agreed that they wished they had to, Joe, or are a part of the family.

“I wrote it as a sort of memoir of my father. His friends will tell you, and say, ” oh, that was Joe’s story,'” Joe is the proud daughter of a now-viral piece of it.

What a wonderful tribute to a much-loved man. I am hoping that one of his children or grandchildren had been that willing to carry on Joe’s legacy,” a commentator wrote in the obituary.

“Your Dad is laughing his a– off right now. No better tribute to a life well-lived and loved,” another agreed.

“Well, this is how it is to live your life. The internet is a wonderful thing, and it was, hands down, the best tribute to the life that I’ve ever read,” said one of the others. “To the family and friends are so very, very sorry for your loss. It sounds like a great guy and someone I would have been very good friends with.”

“Rest in peace in that. Don’t lock the gates,” said one of the others.
