Joseph A. Branda
A loving husband, father, and grandpa passed away on Sunday, June 4, 2023, at the age of 78.
Devoted husband of Karen (nee Mogielnicki) Branda. Proud dad of Steven (Megan) Branda and Janel (Matt) Medvecz. Cherished Grandpa and Papa Joe of Beau, Luke, and Tyson. Dear brother of Salvatore “Sam” Branda and brother-in-law of Sharon Mogielnicki. Dear cousin and friend to many. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Rose (nee Toto) Branda.
Joe was born in Milwaukee on November 12, 1944, and grew up on the Eastside, where he attended Riverside High School. He went on to proudly serve in the U.S. Army and then worked for the City of Milwaukee, from which he retired after 34 years. He thoroughly enjoyed his retirement, which gave him more time to dedicate to his favorite activities like spending time with his grandsons, watching every Brewers, Packers, and Bucks game on TV, walking the neighborhood, fishing, and getting lunch with the boys. Joe was known for his zingers and jokes and always made his friends and family laugh. He was a caring, kind-hearted man and will be missed greatly.
