Ware Sr., Joseph D. - Quincy  
QUINCY -- Joseph D. Ware Sr., 88, of Quincy, died at 11:43 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015, at his home. He was born March 28, 1927, in Jamesport, Mo., a son of John Thomas and Alma Railsback Ware. He married Arlene Emily Novotny on Feb. 11, 1950, in Chicago. She died May 22, 2008. Joseph served in the United States Navy aboard the USS Sierra during World War II. He was proud to be able to travel back to the United States on the USS Ticonderoga when the war came to an end. In his younger years, he worked for Wabash Railroad and Ford Motor Co. He spent several years running a small business with his brother Max. It was called Ware Manufacturing and involved manually producing grain scoops. As his family grew, Joe started working for Gardner Denver in La Grange, Mo. He worked there as a coremaker and retired after 32 years on the job. In addition to working at Gardner Denver, he took on a part-time job at Kirlin's Inc. and worked there even after his retirement. Joseph liked camping and baseball games. He played fast-pitch softball on a team for St. Patrick, Mo. He enjoyed a lengthy retirement. He attended many sporting events over the years that included watching his grandchildren playing on different teams. Family get-togethers, reunions and picnics were among his favorite things to do. He also spent over 10 years restoring a 1957 Ford Fairlane hardtop convertible with son Duane. That particular hobby provided him with great joy and pride, in both his work on the car, and his son's. He loved spending time with his family and was very close to both his children and his grandchildren. Joseph was a member of Blessed Sacrament Parish. As a convert to Catholicism, he attended Mass on a regular basis with Arlene. They raised all eight of their children at this parish, with some attending the school. He was a member of a group at the church called the Minute Men after his retirement. This volunteer group was in charge of handy work at the church building and the school. He worked many years at this with a group of men who became very close friends. Survivors include seven children, Judith (Kent) Wietholder of Liberty, Debbie Uppinghouse of Quincy, Joseph (Shelley) Ware Jr. of Quincy, Janet (Mike) Cole of Camp Point, Duane (Carolyn) Ware of Camp Point, Julie Ware of Quincy and Todd (Michele) Ware of Quincy; 36 grandchildren; and 66 great-grandchildren. In addition to his wife, Joseph was preceded in death by his daughter, Donna Zenk; two great-grandchildren, Gabrielle and Isla Wietholder; two brothers, Max and Rex Ware; and a sister, Christine Huston.
