I would like to express my condolences to your entire family in this difficult time. I have fond memories of your dad on the front porch of your 4th street house visiting with friends and neighbors. Also of your dad driving down the street in his antique ford with the rumble seat. Sorry for your loss.

Dear Family of my Cousin, Joe. My husband and I, Grace Javenkowski and Ron Belair receive the Three Lakes paper and just today learned of Joe's passing.
We extend our deepest sympathy to the entire family, and wish we could be there to meet the wonderful family of Joe. Why things happen like they do sometimes, we will never know. It's sad. We are from Milwaukee, but had lived in Three Lakes for 12 years, and loving it, but had to return to family here, 12 years ago. I love all my cousins, and had the chance to be close to some when residing in Three Lakes, on Winkler Rd. Would walk past the old farm house many times. I will try to keep in touch, as we did for some of Joe's brothers, and sisters, not as much as we should have. My father was Felix, brother of Helen Danowski. and Joe and then there was Grandpa Paul. Wish we could have known Joe better. We will keep him and all of you in our prayers. Our Lord will comfort you, and Joe's spirit will always be with you and his children's children. GOD BLESS YOU ALL` With our Love!

Dear visitors: Dad died of a sudden pulmonary embolism on 4/26/2014 at 4:01pm. That is a blood clot in the lungs. He went to Appleton Medical Center on Monday 4/21/2014 with severe abdominal pain and vomiting. On Tuesday, he had surgery to remove an intestinal blockage. He was getting better each day. On Saturday he took a turn for the worse and had to be rapidly transferred to the ICU. While waiting with mom, they called a hospital wide code blue. His heart had stopped. Many doctors tried to revive him for 40 minutes. They shocked him, injected chemicals and medicine, and performed CPR. He was in heaven already. What a terrible way to get the news of your dad/husband dying. Dad was doing well and scheduled to go home Sunday. We're all struggling a lot. So very hard. Dad, we miss you so much already. You were such a wonderful man/father/husband/brother and grandfather. RIP dad.
