Joseph W. SCHLOSSER Obituary


Joseph W. Schlosser, 81, of Wallingford, died Thursday, (October 24, 2013). He was the loving Husband of the late Phyllis A. Bentze Schlosser. He was born in New York, May 7, 1932, a son of the late Adolph and Anna Servatius Schlosser and served as a Corporal in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He had been employed as an Elevator Constructor for 40 years and was a member of I.U.E.C. Local 91. Joe was a tremendous athlete in his early days, ready for the professional level until a car accident ended his dream. He continued with sports his whole life as a coach and as an avid fan of all sports he could take in. Joe was a wonderful father, provider and role model to all of his children and grandchildren. His favorite place in life was right by his late wife's side, enjoying all 63 years they had together. His favorite place to vacation was Ogunquit, ME, where he and Phyllis lived happily for five years, and visited annually for 30 years- their home away from home. He was a parishioner of Most Holy Trinity Church. He is survived by his children, Joseph F. Schlosser and his wife Shirlee of Wallingford, Catherine Muzio and her husband Phil of Durham, Patricia Schlosser and her partner Mary Kundrath of Wallingford, James Schlosser and his wife Johnna of Wallingford, and Judy Schlosser of Wallingford; his grandchildren, Sarah Brown and her husband Will of Northford, Joseph A.

He was predeceased by his sister, Rita Yocum of Oregon.
