It is with great sadness that the family of Joseph (“Joe”) Warren Sisseck announces his passing as a result of Alzheimer’s on Friday, September 7, 2018, at the age of 78.
Joe was born on November 3, 1939 in Oronogo, MO, the second born son of the late George and Margaret (McWilliams) Sisseck. He graduated from Carl Junction High School in 1957 and married the love of his life, Martha Ann Coffman on October 4, 1958. They lived and raised 4 girls in the Oronogo area and attended Christ’s Church in Oronogo during that time, where Joe served as a deacon. Joe was involved in Radio Emergency Affliated Communication Team (REACT) and was an active ham radio operator for several years. He worked for the Missouri Department of Transportation for over 38 years before injury forced him to retire in 1993. He and Martha moved around a lot in their later years as he enjoyed rehabilitating and renovating homes in his retirement. Joe was a member of Diamond Christian Church at the time of his death.
He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Martha and his four daughters, Charlotte Fieker of Oklahoma City, Ok., Charlene Sprinkles (husband Tim) of Pierce City, Mo., Christine Sisseck (husband Mac Fosmire) of McKinney, Tx., and Becky Gabbert (husband Andy) of Joplin, Mo.; and one brother, Darrel Sisseck (wife Wilma) of Oronogo, Mo.
