Back To Front Page


Joe Dacey Jr., passed away October 28, 2016. Born May 7, 1938, passing at 78 years old.

Joe proudly served in the Marine Corp and also worked for 31 years at Bethlehem Steel. He had loved sailing, tennis, snow skiing, dune buggy riding, and biking with his children in the bike seat. His humor was felt by those around him. He was truly a self-made man who was there to help anyone if he could. He lost his long bout with lung cancer on October 28 and will be missed.

He leaves behind his wife, Evelyne Dacey; son, David Dacey; daughter, Denise (Robert) Freeman; brothers, Michael Dacey and Pat Dacey; sisters, Cindy Furgye and Betty Grigsby; three granddaughters and one grandson.

His family would like to have friends join together at Sand Creek Country Club, 1001 Sand Creek Drive, in Chesterton, on Thursday, November 3, 2016, at 2:00 p.m., to celebrate his life. Please join us to honor him. Please, no flowers.

In lieu of flowers, you can donate to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22718, Oklahoma City, OK, 73123-1718.

Arrangements handled by Edmonds & Evans Funeral Home, 517 Broadway, Chesterton, IN and cremation services provided by Heritage Crematory, Portage, IN.
