Joseph Graczyk, age 72, went home to be reunited with his Lord Thursday, August 12, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents Carl and Anabelle Graczyk. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 47 years, Diane Graczyk; his beloved daughter, Jenna; siblings Connie (Don) Kaczanowski, Carl (Robin) Graczyk, Jackie (Phil) Corwin, Greg (Vicki) Graczyk; sister-in-law, Lora Antor; brother-in-law, Rick Riede; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Joe served his country in Vietnam from 1969-1970. He worked as a land surveyor for many years. He enjoyed hunting, horses, motorcycle riding, training hunting dogs, and target practice with his brother Carl. He loved farming and helped on his parents' farm all of his life. In retirement, he took over the farm raising beef cattle. He enjoyed farming with his buddy Don as they planted, harvested, fixed farm equipment, and took coffee breaks. He had many veteran and farming friends and was always up for coffee and chitchat with friends and family. Joe had a big heart and enjoyed giving to anyone. The family wishes to express their thanks to Kindred Hospice.
