As a Navy veteran, he took great pride in his hometown and didn’t hesitate to throw in a helping hand to spruce up the town for it’s annual Memorial Day Celebration. As an avid concert goer, you could always count on Joe to gift you a ticket to see your favorite band. You could say he was the Buckeye’s biggest fan!

Joe is survived by his mother JoLane Strohl; brothers, Richard (Patsy) VanSickle, Tim (Debbie) VanSickle, Jay Padgett; children, Justin (Jessie) VanSickle, Candice (Tommy) VanSickle; grandchildren, Kiya, Taban, Josie, and Karis; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Richard VanSickle; a brother, Oliver Thomas VanSickle; and two sisters, Lisa Pennell and Barbara Roush. Joe’s kindness, stories and laughs will be greatly missed. “Shine on you crazy diamond”. A service for Joe will be held in front of the Somerset American Legion on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. followed by a celebration of life luncheon at the same location.
