Joe is survived by his wife of 58 years, Louise; his children: Tim (Jennifer) of Mount Horeb, WI, Marge (Kevin) Baker of Gilman, and Peggy Milas of Lublin; his grandchildren, Noel (Dale) Schilmgen of Mount Horeb, Matt of Mount Horeb, and Eric of Eau Claire; and his sister Stephania Woytowicz of Glenview, IL.

He is preceded in death by his parents; five brothers: Chester, Edward, Ted, Stanley, and Walter Milas; three sisters: Florence Kutyna, Bernice Brunn, and Anne Bieno; and a daughter in infancy, Kathy.
