Joe was born in Little Falls to Kenneth and Delrose (Boser) Stein. He graduated from Big Lake High School in 1972. After attending vocational school, he enlisted in the Navy in 1974 and served on the USS El Paso (LKA 117) as an Electrician’s Mate. After 6 years in the Navy, Joe returned to Big Lake where he married his soulmate Becky Jones and they raised their children Kelly and Alex. Joe worked at Hoffman Engineering where he worked as a welder, retiring after thirty-five years. After retiring in 2017, Joe and Becky moved to the Randall area where they built their retirement home on the lake.  He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion.  Joe enjoyed many things in life including fishing, hunting, baseball, softball, bowling, pontoon rides, and drinks by the campfire.  Most of all Joe loved spending time with his family, friends, and especially his two grandkids. Joe had a big heart and would jump to help anyone who could use a hand. He was known for his larger-than-life personality and sense of humor and ability to make anyone laugh.  He will be deeply missed by all who knew him

Joseph is survived by his wife Becky; children, Kelly (Aaron) Schnurstein and Alex (Andrea) Stein; grandchildren, Becclyn and Keegan Schnurstein; mother Delrose; siblings, Kevin (Sue) Stein, Clyde (Dorene) Stein, Ann (Bill) Krivanek, Jim Stein, and Tracy Fowler; many nieces and nephews, many great friends, and his chickens.  Joe is preceded in death by his father Kenneth Stein and his father in-law Robert Jones.
