Obituary

Joseph A. Herrschaft, 83, of Franklinville, passed away on Friday, December 17, 2021.

Beloved husband of the late Margaret (Peg) Herrschaft.  Devoted father of Thomas Herrschaft, stepfather of Gordon (Cathy) Helfrich, Michael (Susan) Helfrich and the late Joan Helfrich.  Loving grandfather of Megan Helfrich and Michael (Jacquelyn) Helfrich.  Proud great-grandfather of Talia Burton and Dottie Helfrich.  Dear brother of Clara Silva.  Predeceased by brothers Francis (Mary) Herrschaft, August Herrschaft, William Herrschaft, and sisters Nancy Napolitano, Martha Bergesson and Marie Herrschaft.  Loving uncle to many nieces and nephews.  Beloved companion to Marian Trivarelli.

Joe proudly served in the US Army.  He retired after many years of service from DuPont Paint in Philadelphia.  Born in Philadelphia, he found a home in Franklinville, New Jersey with his wife Peg.  Together they loved to tend to their property and garden.  Joe was a man who liked the simple things in life.  He especially enjoyed caring for his lawn on his ride-on mower.  When not outside, Joe could often be found in his garage fixing all manner of things.  He was his family's "Mr. Fix It" and could fix just about anything.  He also enjoyed listening to country music.  Joe had a great sense of humor, an infectious laugh and fierce love for his family. 

Graveside Services will be held 11:00 am Friday, December 31st at the Gloucester County Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 240 N. Tuckahoe Road, Williamstown NJ 08094.
