He was son of the late Helena Mary and the late John Leon Stallmer of Troy.
He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years Kathleen A. (Grogan) Stallmer, and his six devoted children: his daughters, Colleen M. Stallmer, MaryAnn (the late Douglas) Jones, Patricia M.

He will be remembered for his devotion to family, compassion for others and larger-than-life sense of humor. But most of all, he will be remembered for just being Joe.
