Joseph James Jagunich Obituary
Jagunich, Joseph James



Joseph James Jagunich, 75, passed away in Honolulu, HI, on January 14, 2016. Hawaii is the place Joe loved the most and it is only fitting that he was there when he passed. We are thankful he wasn't alone as his wife Patti was at his side.

He was preceded in death on August 6, 1999 by his beloved wife Mary Jane (Pollack) Jagunich. He is survived by his loving wife Patricia (Postudensek) Jagunich of Georgetown, TX; sons Paul of Chicago, IL, and Michael of Las Vegas, NV; daughter Sharon of Vado, NM; and seven wonderful grandchildren that he loved dearly.

He was born on August 16, 1940 in Eveleth, MN to Joseph and Viola Jagunich. Joe was a longtime educator, baseball and basketball coach, and athletic director at Del Norte and La Cueva high schools in Albuquerque, NM. He was a loving, kind, and generous husband, father, grandfather, and friend to countless people who are blessed to have known him. Joe loved to travel and spent much of his later years going to many places he wanted to see. He is missed profoundly.

A memorial service will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, May 7 in the chapel at Gate of Heaven Cemetery and Mausoleum at 7999 Wyoming Blvd. NE in Albuquerque. Interment by family members will occur after the service.
