  • Condolences to the Zolkoske Family

    ~~Obituaries~~= Joseph F. Zolkoske Jr., age 82, passed away on Wednesday, December 31, 2014, at his home with his loving family at his side. On November 11, 1932, Joseph Francis was born in Neenah to the late Joseph F. and Elvia R. (Eckrich) Zolkoske Sr. On December 26, 1953, Joe was united in marriage to Patsy Tappan at St. Mary Catholic Church in Menasha. As faithful members of St. Mary's, they both had a strong devotion and love for the church. Upon graduation of high school, Joe worked for Banta Publishers for 22 years as a typesetter. Joe had a love for the water and the sky. He had a collection of RC airplanes and could tell the history behind the planes as well as the wars they flew in. His greatest passion was racing boats in which he participated from the late 40's through the early 80's. Joe then supported all of his sons in their racing careers for many years through the present. Joe was the past Commodore of Wisconsin Power Boat Racing Association and a member of the Badger State Outboard Racing. Joe opened a marine business in which he enjoyed repairing boats/engines/snowmobiles for many years and was very proud of his extensive knowledge of outboard engines. After he retired, Joe stayed loyal to his former customers helping them in their time of need, which usually made him late for dinner. He was very proud of his family and loved spending time with them and he will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 61 years, Pat; their children: Charles (Connie) Zolkoske, Paul (friend, Paula) Zolkoske, Joe (Judy) Zolkoske III, Patricia Ray, Dee Dee (friend, Jeff) Zolkoske, Dennis (Ann) Zolkoske, Kelli (Mike) Landeau, Michelle Zolkoske; his grandchildren: Wyatt and Elliott Ray, Michael (Kelly) Palushik, Jonathon Zolkoske, Nicole, Jennifer, and Theresa Hutchins, Gavin and Arianna Swecker; and a great-grandson, Austin Palushik.In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a daughter, Joan Zolkoske.A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:30 am on Friday, January 9, 2015, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 528 Second Street in Menasha with Fr. Paul Paider officiating. Visitation will be held from 9:30 am until the time of the Mass at the church. Interment will take place in St. Mary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be established.The family would like to extend a special thank you to the nurses and staff on the 4th floor of St. Elizabeth Hospital as well as the nurses of Affinity Hospice for their kindness and loving care given to Joe. -

                  Joe was a true gentleman. As a former racer in the 1980's and a regular client of Joe's shop ever since, I appreciated his knowledge, skills and friendship. The Petersen family sends their thoughts and prayers.
