Joe Wisong

Joe Wisong, 67, of Davenport, passed away on August 9, 2022 from medical issues too numerous to mention.

 

Joseph Henry Wisong was born on April 7, 1955 to Reuel Russell Wisong and Shirley Mae (Grinstead) Wisong in Burlington Iowa. He graduated from Davenport West High School in 1973. He enlisted in the US Army from 1973 – 1977, serving as an armor crewman with the rank of sergeant. He worked at Caterpillar in Mt. Joy for ten years until he and CAT came to a mutual agreement - they kicked him out and he left. Joe graduated from St. Ambrose University in 1989. He worked at McLaughlin Body Co. for 30 years as a manufacturing engineer. He was grateful for the many friends he met during his career. The Davenport Fraternal Order of Eagles was a large part of Joe’s life. Joe made many lifelong friends there and was very proud to be "AN EAGLE"; he served many rolls including Past Worthy President.  The Eagles Club was also where he met his bride, Chris. Joe's proudest moment was when his son, Joshua, became a member of the Eagles making it 3 Wisong generations of Eagles.

 

Christine Hueser willingly joined Joe in marital bliss on September 3, 2000 in Davenport. They had many happy years in their dream home in Davenport.

 

Joe enjoyed golfing with his son, and his buddy Russkins. He also enjoyed fishing, camping and plastic modelling. He was a good drinker which unfortunately contributes to why you are reading this.  Joe was an avid Hawkeye fan having attended many home games with his "Hueser family."

 

He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant sister, Katheryn Ann in 1967.

 

He is survived by his wife, son Joshua (Lynn) of Davenport. Brothers Roy and Tim (Brenda) of Davenport and Lloyd (Lori) of Tennessee.
