Obituary of Joseph Robert Stimac Jr.
Joseph Stimac, wonderful and caring husband, father, grandfather, and friend, age 72, passed away on November 10, 2019 in Boise, Idaho. He was born on October 3, 1947 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Joseph Sr. and Rose Stimac.
Joseph was married to Victoria Stimac for forty memorable years and was a loving father to six children and 12 grandchildren. Including, Carl Van Aacken and Zulma of San Antonio, TX with children Abby and Walter; Christine Strawderman and Tom of Coudersport, PA with children Justin and Kyle; Michael Van Aacken and Misty of Marsing, ID with child Carmen; Stephanie Stimac and Tony of Boise, ID with child Jarek; Nicole Pflughoeft of Oconomowoc, WI with child Jacob; and Heather Rasmussen and Erik of Milwaukee, WI with children Enoch, Elijah, Katja, Sigred, & Ezra.
After graduating high school, Joseph attended trade school to become a pipe fitter & welder, until returning to college and earning his Bachelor in Science for engineering. After graduating, he instructed students in welding and construction at the Job Corps until eventual retirement. In an always welcoming home, he could often be found in his workshop making hand crafted wooden keepsakes, tinkering with his latest addition to the Bronco, or working in the yard with Vicky. With a daily trip to the mailbox, checking for his latest magazine subscription of shooting, hunting, or automotive reading material, he was forever looking for a new idea or hobby to talk about with another. A conversationalist, he will be remembered by all for his advice and stories of pursuing wildlife in the great outdoors. He will live on in our hearts forever…
