Joseph Carl Sukie passed away peacefully on July 31, 2021 at the age of 90.
Joseph was born in Barberton to the late Joseph and Teresa Sukie in 1930. He graduated from Barberton High School and enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict. He was stationed at Chicksands, England as a Radio Intercept Operator. Joseph retired from Yoder Brothers, Inc. (Aris) with 47 years of service.
Joseph loved all types of music especially his Saturday polkas, casinos, morse code, traveling, the beach, sudoku puzzles, but most of all time spent with the love of his life “Norma June” and the rest of his family. He especially loved to write and doodle on anything he could get his hands on-scraps of paper, store receipts, napkins, fast food containers and post-it notes-hopefully there are precious works of art and his words of wisdom still to be found.
Joseph was a member of Prince of Peace Catholic Church and a former member of S.S. Cyril and Methodius. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus #1617 and Moose Lodge #759.
Preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Norma June; infant daughter, Regina Marie; brothers, Eugene and Louis. Joseph is survived by his five daughters, Becky Sukie, Linda Sukie, Sandy (Ernie) Povirk, Terry (Dan) Askew and Vicky (Joe) Pasternak; he leaves behind 12 loving grandchildren and (extended grandchildren), sister-in-law, Donna Sukie and many nieces and nephews.
A private burial will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery with Fr. Robert Jackson Celebrant. To share a memory or send a condolence, please visit www.silva-hostetler.com
