Joseph Louis Muckway, 59, of Three Oaks, died peacefully Friday, March 31, 2023, in the presence of his family.
His life began May 20, 1963 in Michigan City, Indiana, the youngest of four children born to Louis and Joyce Muckway.
When Joseph was younger, he was in a car accident with his best friend, Donny. Sadly, Donny passed away and Joseph was left with a lifelong injury. However, that did not stop Joseph from living life to the fullest. He loved the outdoors and would wake up early to drink his coffee while sitting on the lake all day to fish. Joseph enjoyed landscaping; from trees to bushes, he would plant anything that would fit on his property.
Joseph will be greatly missed by family and friends. He is survived by his daughter, Sarah (Adam) Bucher of Sawyer; two grandchildren, Kole, Kelsey; one sister, Pamela Martin of Three Oaks; one nephew, Roger; and a host of extended cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, brother, Lonnie Muckway; and one sister, Sue Koepke.
Family and friends will gather Saturday, April 8, 2023 from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. in Wagner Family Funerals Pobocik Chapel, 106 Ash Street East, Three Oaks.
