Joseph Tkalcich

A kind and generous man, Joseph Matthew Tkalcich, went home to be with the Lord on January 5, 2023. 

A time of remembrance will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 12 at Christ Community Church, 24646 Hazlewood Drive, Nisswa, MN  56468 with services to follow at 5:30 p.m.

Joe’z as he was known by many, began his life in Ely January 12,1954. He lived in the Staples area for many years. In 2000 he and his wife, Tamela (Srock), built their home in Breezy Point, where they built their life together.

Known for his fine craftsmanship, Joe’s creations graced many homes with Intarsia and custom routered signs. His earlier years of trucking and decades of crafting brought him many friends who will miss him dearly. His family, while rejoicing his victory over disease by death, mourn a great loss in their lives.

Joe is survived by his wife; four stepchildren, Nathen (Jenny), Amanda (Joe), Mathew (Jessicka) and Leah (Ben); nine grandchildren; one great-grandchild; one brother, John (Eden) and numerous nieces and nephews that will hold him dearly within their hearts. 

Preceding him in death were his parents, Frank and Mary Tkalcich and one brother, Raymond.

Arrangements are with Kline Funeral Home, Pequot Lakes.
