Joseph M. Hoegerl

LINESVILLE — Joseph M. Hoegerl, 95, of Linesville, formerly of Guys Mills, passed away at home with his family at his side on Monday, Dec. 2, 2013. He was born Nov. 30, 1918, in Swissvale.

He had a long, wonderful life. He suffered from a stroke in 2004 and then came to live in Linesville with his son, Richard, and his wife, Patty, and their three sons, who cared for him the last nine years.

He was married June 16, 1938, to the love of his life, Rose Capanio. Joseph was a World War II U.S. Army veteran and then graduated from Allegheny College. He then became a chemist at the American Viscose, where he retired in 1981 as a department head. They had an annual reunion every summer that he loved to attend. His coworkers loved to tell how “he was the best boss they ever had.”

Joseph was known as a quiet, gentle, extremely intelligent man. He was a wonderful loving, kind, husband, father, son, brother and most importantly, grandfather. He loved each one of his grandchildren and had great memories of all of them. In proving his intelligence he has patents in his name for devices he invented to improve yarn quality. He had made his own first computer. Joseph was a ham radio operator, which came in very handy during the devastation of the 1985 killer tornadoes in our area.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Rose; his son, Frederick Hoegerl; and a grandson, Jason Hoegerl.

Survivors include a daughter, Dallas Folmar Behan and her husband, Larry, of Baton Rouge, La.; two sons, Thomas Hoegerl and his wife, Karen, of Edinboro, and Richard Hoegerl and his wife, Patty, of Linesville; and a daughter-in-law, Nancy Hoegerl. He was loved by his nine grandchildren, Shawn and Jady Folmar and Mark, Steven, Quentin, Aaron, Jamie and Michael Hoegerl, and Samantha Stump; 11 great-grandchildren, Shawn, Jady, Brody, Joe, Ryanne and Julia Folmar, Jay and Ricky Hoegerl and Maddi, Ryan and Spencer Ashe.

The family suggests memorial contributions may be given in his name to Calvary Baptist Christian Academy, 545 Randolph St., Meadville, Pa. 16335; or Asera Care Hospice, 1600 Peninsula Drive, Erie, Pa. 16505.

The family of Joseph Hoegerl would like to extend our sincere thanks to all who helped care for him with us, including: Asera Care’s Dr. Barac, nurses, Tracy and Trish; caregivers, Kim and Darla; social worker, Robin; priest, Mark; and Helpmates caregivers, Sharon Shrock, Elaine Horner and Deb Lambert. Also our princess, 1-year-old Amari Udell, who brought so much love and joy to him. Thank you all for loving him and helping when we needed the help. You will all be blessed for the giving of yourself.

Services will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements are under the direction of Royal-Coleman Funeral Home, 6028 Route 6, Linesville.
