Joseph P. Werner March 15, 1956 - January 11, 2019

Joseph Patrick Werner, age 62 of West St. Paul. We say a sorrowful goodbye to our Joe who passed away on January 11, 2019 after a courageous battle with a glioblastoma brain tumor. He was a man of intense loyalty, high humility, sharp wit, and endless humor. Joe was a salesman extraordinaire, friend to many, and above all, a loving father and husband. He loved the world of food, the cabin woods, the smell of the chainsaw and tractor diesel, driving his Mercury Grand Marquis, and being with his grandchildren. He made friends everywhere he went and will be missed by many. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Mary Werner, and is survived by his wife Nancy, sons John (Rachel) and Tom (Rachel), brother John, sister Mary Beth (Eric), grandchildren Jack, Eleanor, Emerson and James, and nephew Charlie. In lieu of flowers, Joe would want you to donate to a cause close to your heart.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, January 16th at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Church (1154 Seminole Ave, West St. Paul, MN). Visitation will precede the service from 10 – 11 a.m. A celebration of life and buffet will follow from 4 – 9 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall (1114 American Boulevard W, Bloomington, MN). In lieu of flowers, Joe would want you to donate to a cause close to your heart.

    Todd and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Joe. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. We have some very fond memories of him and he sure was particular about his wood! We feel fortunate to have known him and enjoyed some special times together. May God give him eternal rest and the family the strength to bear the great pain of losing him so young.

    Pam and Todd Hanson
