Joseph Pat­rick Paznonski Jr., 57 years old, of Rhine­lander, Wis., went peacefully at home after a two- year battle with a terminal liver illness.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Paznonski Sr. and Louise (Zebrowski) Paznonski of Three Lakes, Wis.; his brothers, James Dobbs, Darrell Dobbs and Ronald Paznonski; and by one granddaughter, Peyton Lonkoski.

Survived by Mary Colburn of Rhinelander; sons, Pauley Paznonski and Bradley (Romi) Paznonski of Rhine­lander, and Joseph Bellman of Stone Lake, Wis.; daughters, Amanda (Ricky) Bodoh, Melissa Paznonski of Elcho, Wis., Jennifer Bodoh and Cheyanne (Cody) Colburn of Rhinelander; brothers, Mike (Nancy) Zebrowski of Eagle River, Wis., David (Bonnie) Paznonski of Conover, Wis., and John Paznonski of Three Lakes; sisters, Edna (Steve) Rhode of Conover and Margaret (James) Greenman of Eagle River.

Also surviving are 11 grand­children, many nieces, nephews, cousins, one uncle, two aunts, and his best friend, Warren Ostrowski.

He will be remembered for being a good father and PaPa and had a special nickname for them all.

He was a hard worker all of his life. He was employed for many years with Nagel Lumber Co. and for many years as a finisher with Fres­no Concrete.

Joseph loved the outdoors, watching the Packers and he enjoyed his beer. He was always joking with friends and family saying that, “If he wasn’t picking on you, that he didn’t care.”

He will be greatly missed by many.
