Joe passed away peacefully at his home on June 17, 2017 just shy of his 83rd birthday. He was born in Northampton, PA and moved to California after serving four years in the Air Force. While he was stationed in Northern California he met the love of his life and was soon married to his wife of 62 years Sue and they started and shared a family.
Joe was a long time resident of Norco and worked for SPS Technology in Santa Ana for 35 years before retiring as their Plant Manager.
He was the ultimate family man and his family, both immediate and extended, was definitely the focal point of his life.
Joe was also a man of many interests and talents. He touched a great many people through the various chapters of his life, including volunteer work at God's Kitchen, the Norco Senior Center, and American Legion Honor Guard. He was a great cook and always wanted to be in the middle of the action, whether it was at a family picnic, or making his famous tacos at the American Legion on Saturdays. He was also a very active and popular member of the congregation at St. John's Episcopal Church in Corona, his presence there will be sorely missed by all.
Upon entering retirement, Joe and Sue took up the sport of Volksmarching and they literally walked their way through many countries of the world and every state of the Union! He also loved to play games and was a very competitive and skilled participant in darts, bowling, pool, horseshoes, and ping pong....establishing himself as the consensus all around family champion!
In addition to his wife Sue of Norco, Ca, he is survived by his daughters Karen Obradovitz of Capistrano Beach, Ca., JoAnna Conyers of Corona, Ca; his son Craig Obradovitz of Corona, Ca; 5 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.
His was a life WELL LIVED and he will be MISSED DEARLY.
