Joseph A. Pavnica

April 9, 1958 — May 7, 2023

Joseph A. Pavnica, Birth 9 April, 1958 Death 7 May, 2023.

My brother Joe suddenly held by an angels hand.  Held tight with her loving song.  Love carried Joe home that day.

Brought to life on earth with God’s grace in mom.  Dad and mom by his side.

Joined soon by brothers Tom then Bob.  Recall all your smiles then, Joey filled with pride.

Uncle Joe a given recent name, know those four miss you.  Our Creator holds you in his arms today.

A sad day here, spring 2023.  Think about you Joe.  Now with Joseph, our dad sharing special moments spent with all of us.

Joe looked for the answers we all seek.  Found now with our Lords light to keep.  Joe, we will miss you.
