" data-reactid = "24"> Inspired by her father's unique perspective on life, Monique Heller (one of Joe's three daughters) wrote the comedian but still said goodbye on behalf of the family and shared it with the Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home website, reports CNN .
"My dad has an unorthodox view of life, and I wanted to honor him and make people smile," Monique told the outlet.
Detailed in the long commemorative article is how Joe, who was born during the Great Depression, lived a life of "thrift, hoarding and cheap damage, often at the expense of others."
"When the doctors confronted their daughters with the news last week that & # 39; your father is a very sick man," they unanimously replied, & # 39; you have no idea & # 39 ;, says the death joke.  Monique said from the beginning that her father liked to "torture his siblings through a childhood of disgusting pranks, with his brother, Bob, who usually serves as his wingman. ”

Whether it was inappropriate games like" Ding Dong, Dogs— "to earn school lunch puffs with" laxative- laced chocolate cake and excrement meat bread sandwiches, "No taps were too small for Joe to achieve and no person was ever ready.
" He named his first dog, "Speed," so she would have to scream his name to come home if he wandered off, "Monique wrote hilariously in the obituary.
Later in life, while Joe was working as a self-taught chemist at Cheeseborough-Ponds, he met a woman named Irene and she soon became his wife – something Monique joking was still surprising to this day.
”[Irene] was hoodwinked into thinking he was a charming individual with decor. Boy, was she ever wrong, ”the obituary reads. “Joe bothered her daily with her mouth and her choice of clothes. To this day, we do not understand how he convinced our mother, an extremely decent woman and a pillar of her church, to sew and create the colorful costumes and props that he used for his antiques. "

Joe and Irene eventually welcomed three daughters – besides Monique they also had Michelle and Lisette – but the sex did not end there, in fact they only strengthened, especially when the girls started dating.
"During his formative years, Joe made sure that their moral fibers were enriched by both Archie Bunker and Benny Hill. When they started dating, Joe would greet them by running their registration plates first and checking for bare tires, "Monique wrote." If their vehicles passed inspection, they were invited into the house where shotguns, harpoons and peanuts were clearly left on the screen. " His family also joked about his Joe's tendencies to often hoard items from "Essex Dump," taking uncomfortable naps and snoring incredibly loudly.
"He left his family with a house full of crap, 300 kilos of bird seeds and dead houseplants that they have no idea what to do with," Monique wrote. "If there was ever a tax he pulled out under you among the rubbish balls, please wait for the appropriate time to contact the family to demand your German. We are available tomorrow. "
" Joe was also a perfect nap. There was no road, restaurant or friend's house in Essex that he did not sleep on or in. It was not an occasion for formal or an event for dour that Joe did not interrupt with his apnea and extensive snoring, "she added.

In addition to his three daughters, Joe leaves behind three siblings, two sisters-in-law , 14 nieces and nephews, and eight grandchildren, all to "crush his great fortune," according to the Death Act. He was triggered by Irene and "his pet fish, Jack, which we found in the freeze last week."
A Celebration for Life is scheduled for Thursday, September 13, where his family has requested that guests wear "the most inappropriate T-shirt that you are comfortable to be seen in public with, as Joe often did," to honor his hatred of "formality and kinship. "
His funeral is then scheduled for Friday, September 13. Instead of flowers, his family joked that they were" seeking donations to offset the expense of publishing an excessively long obituary that really would have made Joe. "

Change Tones for I At that moment, Monique noted that "what would have made him the happiest is for you to have a cup of coffee with a friend and bull – whether his discoveries or play a harmless prank on any unsuspecting juice."
It seriously didn't, but it does not last long  "Everyone has a Joe story and we would love to hear them all," Monique wrote. "Joe met his death and his mortality, which he did with his life, with his face on, and often told that when he dropped dead to dig a hole in the garden and just roll him in. Much to his disappointment, he will be real interred … next to his wife. "
" Unfortunately, Mom, Lisette and I did the best we could to take care of him and keep him out of your hair for as long as we could, "she added jokingly." Back in your court now. "
