Joe Roehrick

06/28/1963 - 08/04/2019

          Joe Roehrick, age 56, died on Sunday 04 August 2019 at his home in Brookfield, WI. Joe was born in Sussex, WI on 28 June 1963 to the late Dick and Pat (Pope) Roehrick, and lived his life in Winneconne.

          Joe was a 1981 graduate of Winneconne High School, and at a young age took over the family septic service business. With hard work and dedication, Joe expanded the company from a small, one-truck operation into Chief Industrial Services, Inc., one of the leading environmental services companies in the Midwest. Joe took great personal pride in providing job opportunities and careers to many, and was dearly loved by his co-workers.

          Joe had many hobbies including scuba diving, sport fishing (marlin and sharks in particular), woodworking, riding his Harley, and restoring AMC Javelins. He loved taking his friends and family members on diving and sport fishing trips to Mexico and the Florida Keys, and he particularly enjoyed time with his family at his cabin in Phillips, WI.

Joe was an active and involved member of Winneconne Masonic Lodge 186.

          Joe is survived by his daughter, Andrea Roehrick (fiancé, Earl Peterson); former spouse, Roxanne Lee; four sisters, Mary (Ken) Mueller, Kathy (Burt) Opperman, Rebecca Thomas, Melissa Cottle; and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

          Along with his parents, Joe was preceded in death by his daughter, Courtney; and two brothers, Jeffrey and Jim.

          A private visitation was held at Mueller Funeral Home, and an inurnment will be held in the Winneconne Cemetery at a later date.

I worked with Joe for many years when he owned and operated Chief Environmental services. Joe was always a pleasure to work with as he treated everbody with dignity and respect. Joe was a tireless worker and always used good business sense and a high level of integrity. Joe will be missed by his many friends and family members. God bless Joe, you are in a better place now.

For Joe's family, I wish to extend deepest sympathy for your loss. My whole heart and my prayers go out for you. Joe was one of the kindest souls that I've ever have been blessed by God to know. He carried a smile like nobody's business. His heart was always in everything he did. His friendship, for many, was 2nd to none. If you knew Joe, then you knew love. He will be immensely missed.

Andrea, I know we only spoke on the phone a few times, but hopefully you remember me. Over these last 8 years working with Joe, and becoming friends with Joe, was a pleasure. I’m so sorry for your loss. Although we both know Joe lead a hard life and it had its ups and downs, I feel blessed to have known him. I hope we may stay touch with one another. Look back at the fond memories with love, as he loved you very much. You were his world and he spoke of you frequently with the love only a father can have for a daughter. I wish you the best for your future. Take care of you, Wendy
