Joseph "Joe" Loepker passed away suddenly at home in Merrillville, Indiana Sunday, Feb 13, 2022.
Joe is survived by his 2 year old son, Wyatt Joseph David, and Skylar, Wyatt’s mom; his parents, Mary and David Loepker of Lowell; his big sister, Nicole Graves (Shane) of Lowell; his little sister, Chelsea Jones (Billy) of Lowell; grandparents, John and Dolores Lyons; his nieces, Valerie (Riley), Mikenna, and Lennon; his nephews, Ashton, David and Kayson; his aunts and uncles and many cousins. He is preceded in death by his Grandmother Margie, his Grandfather Corky (Stanley), his Uncle Duane, Uncle Dale, and Uncle Mal.
Joe was a smart, loving, sarcastic soul. When he loved, he loved hard. His son was the pride of his life. He really found the biggest blessing in being a father to Wyatt. Joe and his parents and sisters had a very close relationship; if you ever need any of the kids, Mary & David’s is where they would be. Joe was a jokester with his nieces and nephews, who called him Uncle Joe Joe. Joe worked as a track and rail maintenance operator, he really had a passion for his job of 15 years, most recently working out of Griffith. Joe had the best of friends. Making friends with almost anyone, when he was younger he would stand out front and ask kids as they rode by, "Hey wanna be my friend?" And they always did. Joe will be missed tremendously, our lives will never feel the same. If love alone could keep you here, we would have had you forever. Rest easy, Joseph David. We love you to the moon and back.
