SUS, Joseph A. Nov 21, 1931 – Mar 16, 2013 Joe went home to be with our Lord after waging a valiant fight against many different afflictions that he had patiently endured for many years. Through it all he remained the loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather he had always been. To Joe there was nothing more important or sacred than the vows he took the day he married Mary Ann almost 59 years ago. By his quiet example we all learned what love and faithfulness looked like in a man who always put his wife and family above himself in everything he ever did or said. A faithful Catholic, Joe loved music and sang in the St. James Adult Choir for many years. He loved to boom the bass line of any song he could get his hands on. Family sing-a-longs were always a great delight to him especially at Christmas time. For 42 years Joe built a great career at Mutual Protective Insurance Company retiring in 1996 as a Senior Vice President. But it wasnt his job that defined him. As a talented woodworker and remodeler, his legacy is seen more in the help he gave his family with remodeling, fixing and building projects he worked on for all of us, all out of love. If you were lucky enough to know Joe then you probably have stories of your own to tell that likely bring a smile to your face. Please bring them to the Vigil Service Friday evening as the family would love to hear them. Joe was preceded in death by his son, Robert J. Sus. He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann Sus; daughters, Nancy Langenfeld (Gene) and Kathy Sus Spitsen (Jim); grandchildren: Joe, Nick and Matt, Rachel and Elise; great-granddaughter, Isabel; brother, Bill Sus (Cathy); nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends Friday, March 22, 6pm to 7pm with VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm at the West Center Chapel. VISITATION Saturday, March 23 at 9am at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church followed by MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL at 10am. Interment, Resurrection Cemetery with military rites by Millard American Legion Post 374 and VFW Post 8334. The family suggests memorials to American Cancer Society or St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.
