Joe G. Maise, 76, of Hampton, Iowa, passed away Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at Franklin Country View Nursing Facility in Hampton, with his family by his side.

Joe was born on July 9, 1943, in Hampton, to Simon "Sam" and Florence (Steenhard) Maise. He graduated from Franklin Consolidated School in 1962. Joe attended trade school in Springfield, Missouri. From 1963 to 1979, he worked for various businesses as a service tech working on machines and equipment.

Joe married the love of his life, Brenda Peyton on June 25, 1968, in Hampton. To this union four children were born: Joseph, Sheila, Jodi and Jennifer. Throughout his life, he instilled in his family the importance of hard work, love, respect, and moral values.

Joe was devoted to his family and friends and is survived by his wife of fifty-one years, Brenda Maise of Hampton, son Joseph J. Maise (Dawn Galindo) of Hampton, daughters Sheila (Mike) Norman of Pella, Jodi Crum of Hampton, and Jennifer (Edmund) Brinkman of Latimer, grandchildren Brandon (Jessie) Norman, Haley (Patrick) Schrader, Cody (TaLyn) Crum, Kyle Crum, Conner Crum, Spencer Brinkman, Trevor Brinkman, Alekzandr Busma, Benjamin Busma, Zach Welsher and Erin Galindo, great-grandchildren Freya and Guinevere Norman, Taylin, Ava and Kinzerlee Schrader, KDence, Knox and Nash Crum. He is also survived by his brothers Simon A. (Faye) Maise, John Maise, Richard Maise and Lynn (Joni) Maise, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents Simon and Florence, sister Shirley and Sheila, brother Johan, sisters-in-law Linda, Patrice and Pricilla, as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Joe was a witty man, with a lead foot, and a sharp tongue. He enjoyed caring for animals, fishing, gardening, building computers, and tinkering on cuckoo clocks. He was a Jack of all trades, that let his talents shine while remodeling the two houses they lived in. He also offered his help to those he knew were in need. He is deeply missed by so many.

"Joe was a friend since grade school. We all know that he had lead, right foot! Ha I remember the days we would "fly" down the alleys in Latimer, never stopping when crossing a street. How that old green Ford took all that abuse is beyond me. Joe would come into Latimer and as he passed Fritz Paullas farm he would turn the ignition key off and then back on again and the Ford would backfire making the loudest "bang" ever. He was a good friend of Officer Dorenkamp. HA HA Blessings to the Maise family. He was a great friend. I'll always remember you."
