Joseph Querin Weinreis, age 67, of Pardeeville, formerly St. John, died on Friday, December 16, 2016 at UW Hospital in Madison. He was born November 16, 1949 in Chilton, son of the late John & Frances (Kopf) Weinreis.

He farmed on the family homestead in the St. John & Hilbert areas until his retirement when he worked part time as a security guard.

Joe took every opportunity presented to him to go 4 wheeling and looked forward to time spent visiting with friends, family, and the entire gang at the Pardeeville Public Library. One of Joe’s most cherished occasions were those moments he was able to be around his grandchildren who always brought him love and joy.
