Joseph "Joey" F Hoerth
Sheboygan, WI

Joseph F. “Joey” Hoerth, age 62, of Sheboygan, died on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at his home in Sheboygan. He was born November 29, 1954 in Fond du Lac, son of the late Roman L. & Dolores (Heimerl) Hoerth. Joey never married in life because he said he could never find anyone as charming and alluring as his sisters.

Earlier in his life, Joey operated Joey’s Tap in Stockbridge. During his days in Stockbridge, he also volunteered with the Stockbridge Fire Department and sat on the Fireman Legion Park Board where he had served as Past President. He had been a member of the Harbor Fishing Club and tended to the ball diamond in Stockbridge for the Youth Baseball League.

Joey spent many years on Lake Winnebago Sturgeon Spearing, and although the sport was fun, Joey especially appreciated the camaraderie and the beer samplers the season brought on. In his free time, Joey collected beer paraphernalia and enjoyed cooking; he was especially fond of making home made salsa and baked beans for family and friends. He looked forward to spending time at his place in Wausaukee, especially trips to Bear Point with his friends.

Joey was a loving Uncle who looked for ways to have fun and make sure life wasn’t taken too seriously. He had a big heart and looked out for those around him who maybe needed a helping hand. In recent years, he did a lot of volunteering for the Salvation Army and was tasked by Santa Claus to be one of his special helpers at Christmas Time. Those who knew Joey loved him and will miss him greatly.

Survivors include his sisters: Sue (Marty) Seckel, Mary Muellenbach and her partner, Sande Janagold, Alice Ruliffson, Janice (Skip) Olson, Ann (Rudy) Propson, Betty (Dick) Schumacher; a brother-in-law: Ron Muellenbach; and a great friend and neighbor: Julie Hemb. He is further survived by many nieces & nephews who were close to his heart, other relatives and friends.

Joey was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother-in-law: Casey Ruliffson.

Funeral service will be at 6:00 pm on Friday, April 28, 2017 at Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton. Burial will be in the St. Mary Catholic Cemetery in Stockbridge. Friends may call at the funeral home from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm on Friday, April 28, 2017.

To Joey's family.
Please accept my condolences and sympathy.
Joey became his own legend at a very young age. There are a couple of generations of "kids" who knew of Joey's Tap and who Joey was before they were even of age to frequent there. He was a kind soul, liked by everyone. He gave generously of his time and talents.
May your memories and everyone else's help you at this time.

Joey was a great friend. Although I hadn't seen him much in recent years the " Joey " stories never stopped, and there were many to choose from. We had some great times in Mercer and Hayward. He will be missed.

Our memories are far too many to list. All of them are priceless. The one that comes to mind is when he went away for a weekend ,and let his sister Betty and I in charge.We gave the bar a makeover. The newly waxed floors were so slippery the bar stools slid all over. Joey was so mad !! He just shook his head,and had to strip the floor after his long weekend. You will be missed.

Marilyn& Tom Behnke (Joey was not only a classmate but a great friend to both of us.) - Apr. 15, 2017

The great memories with Joey are endless. What stands out to me most about Joey was how important it was to him that everyone around him was happy. He took pride in other people's joy and what a great trait that is. The softball team Years will never be forgotten. Thank you Joey.

Joey was always a great friend to us both. Always cared about everyone, putting himself last. Visiting with Lisa this weekend, she recalled when she and Scott were younger, walking home from church and Joey was cleaning the bar, he would stop them and have them come in and grab a candy bar! Great memories of a wonderful person!

There are so many memories of Joey. He was one great guy with a big heart. Loved that man. One very good memory is our Brewer Spring Training Trip to AZ in mid to late 80's. We took a trip over to San Diego out of Tucson so we got real close to the Mexican border. We were stopped by border police. Joey was worried he was going to be deported and us in the car were not making it too easy on him. Another memory of the trip was when we were at one bar (and we were at many), he said to the bartender, give me a shot of the three worst tasting booze you have in the bar, and then he drank it. Once again, Joey was one of a kind, caring and giving. What fun playing on his Joey's Tap softball team. Yes he is going to be missed.
