Haselbeck, Kenneth L. “Joe” of Saginaw, Michigan

 

Beloved husband, father, papa, brother, uncle and friend passed away peacefully, with his family by his side on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at Covenant HealthCare – Harrison. He was 67 years old. Kenneth Louis “Joe” Haselbeck was born on July 23, 1950 in Bay City, Michigan to the late William and Sophia (Mikosz) Haselbeck. Joe was a proud 1968 graduate of Saginaw High School. Following graduation, he moved to Grand Rapids attending trade school to become an electrician. He married the love of his life, Cynthia Ann Delaney on September 13, 1975 in Saginaw at St. Rita Catholic Church; she survives him. Joe began his career working as an electrician for AT Ferrell, then at Wilson Machine, which later became Lucas Assembly and Test. He retired in 2000. He was a faithful member of St. Rita Catholic Church, St. Casimir Catholic Church and Holy Family Catholic Church. Joe enjoyed helping people in their homes and would often work after hours assisting in electrical issues. He was the jack of all trades. Joe enjoyed conversation with anyone and everyone. You could come to him with any problem and he’d help you figure it out. Joe was extremely proud to have assist in drafting, constructing and building a four stall garage, which included an elevator and a catwalk. Wherever Joe was, his presence was known, he had a larger than life personality and was loved by all. He will forever be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor, his selfless devotion and loyalty to his family and friends, and for always being right in matters of debate. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Joe’s lifelong friends for always being by his side right up to the end: Jim Kozak, Andy DuRussel, and Bill Kennedy.
