January 3, 1937-April 27, 2021
Oh, he makes his life as a carpenter.
He works his hands in wood.
He goes to work each morning.
And he comes home every night.
And the time that passes in between.
He knows has been spent right.
After many years of suffering and with never a complaint on his lips or in his heart, Josef Heuser joined his Lord and Savior peacefully in his home Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
Josef was a shining example to us all of what genuine gratitude was, and how to be a positive light, amidst life’s hardships. He loved the Lord and devoted his life to the gospel. He never had a rough word for anybody. Josef truly never complained. He always smiled even while in pain.
Josef was born January 3, 1937, to Eva Barbara Mahr and Heinrich Alfons Heuser, in Koln, Germany, and there, in a war-torn country, spent his early years with his 7 siblings. There he met and married his sweetheart, Christa, before eventually immigrating to the United States together, with their two daughters, Sylvia and Carola. Josef was a craftsman and wood was his art, and his passion. He worked with his hands, and his craftsmanship was exquisite. He had a awesome sense of humor, and everybody that knew Josef, loved him.
Josef was preceded in death by his son, Joachim; son-in-law, Ronald Brent Jessop; three angel grandbabies, Josef, William and Christa; his mother, Eva; his father, Heinrich; his sisters, Elizabeth and Eva. He is survived by his siblings Heinrich, Maria, Katchen, and Alfons, his loving wife Christa, his children Sylvia, Carola, Rosa, Abraham, Maria, Christina, Joey, Angelina, Katherina and his 46 grandchildren and 56 great grandchildren!
Viewing held May 2nd from 6 pm-8 pm, as well as, Monday at 10:00 am until the funeral services held Monday, May 3rd, 2021, at 11:00 am at Pinesdale Chapel. Burial will follow at the Pinesdale Cemetery. Condolences can be left for the family at www.dalyleachchapel.com.
Sing for the love of the land. Hey-ho, blessed is the home. Born of the carpenter’s hand. Born of the carpenter’s hand. (Written by Kari Thompson Peterson)
