Joseph "Joe Bird" Zebrosky, age 68 of Valparaiso, IN, passed away on September 25, 2020.

He was born on December 6, 1951, in Beckley, West Virginia, to Joseph and Laura (Crowder) Zebrosky.

Joe is survived by his sisters, Linda (Andy) Dore and Patricia (Ray) Friend; nieces and nephews, Mark (Angie) Friend, Michael (Febie) Friend, Michelle (Chuck) Trembly and Stephanie (Jason) Nichols; great-nieces, Madison, Mackenzie and Skylar and his beloved fur babies, Daisy, Mia and Chloe.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Joe worked for most of his life at Bethlehem Steel and Indiana Flame, then retired, and enjoyed working at G.P. Strategies as a safety and certification trainer. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force and was a member of the VFW Post 2511, The Chesterton Moose #1623, The American Legion #170 and The Masonic Masons Lodge.

Joe was a devoted son, loving brother, outstanding uncle, and a great friend to everyone he met. Some may say he was a “jack of all trades”. Joe is loved by many and is remembered by his family for his love of cars, he always loved working on his classic Camero, and his dedication to participating in his pool league. Some might say he was a computer whiz; he could fix anything with your computer. Joe also loved to ride his motorcycle and traveling anywhere the road would take him. Lastly, he loved spending time with his family and our frequent gatherings. Though he is gone from our life, he will live forever in our hearts.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Edmonds & Evans is entrusted with arrangements.
