Joe built a career around the corrugated box business but he devoted himself to his wife & children. Joe and Pam moved to Texas following the birth of their grandchildren and Joe retired not long after. Retirement made it easier for Joe to enjoy his favorite pastimes. He golfed many times a week with amazing friends at Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco. He was an avid reader and history buff, as well as, known for random knowledge and trivia facts. Joe looked forward to the newspaper daily and read it from cover to cover, along with completing the Sudoku puzzles. His love on Saturdays was watching his grandkids play soccer and watching the Notre Dame Fighting Irish with his family. He looked forward to each touchdown as he would hook arms with the whole family and sing the fight song while teaching all of his grandchildren the words..

Joe was a kind,caring,compassionate man. I remember many an evening with me on one side of the aerobic room and Joe on the other with friends sandwiched in between and Pam leading the charge. He was so very kind and caring to my brother who was in need of kindness and compassion. I am so very proud to have had Joe as a friend.

I have known the Nemith Family for years, with Mr. Nemith’s son, Joe (Pup), being one of my best friends since High School. The Nemith’s are one of my favorite families to be around, even though it’s been years since they’ve lived in Indiana, I still feel like they’re right around corner.
Mr. Nemith will be sorely missed, but never forgotten by all that knew and loved him. He has raised a beautiful family, and his memories will keep that light shining.
RIP Mr. Nemith. You will be missed.

I knew Joe for only a few years but it seems I knew him for my entire life. He was very easy to like. He will be remembered as a happy, smiling, positive and up-beat friend by me and by the many he met at Stonebriar. Rest in peace Joe.
