Joseph Martin Correll, 84, Kokomo, went to be with his Lord Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018, surrounded by family at St. Vincent Kokomo. He was born Jan. 24, 1933, in Mongo, Indiana, to Verling Correll and Edith (Mann) Correll.
He attended Peru High School and then served as a medic in the Army during the Korean War. He worked various jobs in Indiana, Arizona, and California through the years. His heart was in the service industry, where he loved talking to people. He enjoyed finding unique treasures at yard sales, flea markets, and auctions. His smile and laugh were infectious. He said "thank you very much" with an Italian accent that will be greatly missed.
He is survived by daughter, Jo (Dale) Harden, Bedford, Indiana; two granddaughters, Dawn (Jon) Schuller, New Haven, Indiana, and Tracy (Danny Welch) Clarner, Bloomington, Indiana; six great-grandchildren, J.D., Olivia, Liberty, Sophie, Justice, and Hope; two brothers, Gene (Donna) Correll, Avon Park, Florida, and La Moine (Donna) Correll; and several real nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Verling and Edith Correll, and one brother, Jack Correll.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, at Zion Chapel, 915 S. Broadway, Peru, with a funeral service immediately following. Military service will be provided by the Miami County Military Rites Team. Entombment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens, Chapel of Peace, in Kokomo.
