Obituary for Joseph E. Hanselmann

August 11, 2019
Newark, New Jersey


Joseph E. Hanselmann, 79, of Newark, NJ entered into rest on Sunday August 11, 2019 surrounded by his loving family. Born in Newark, NJ he was the son of the late Joseph C. and Rita (Griffith) Hanselmann. He was the devoted husband of Noreen L. (Clark) Hanselmann.

Joseph was a proud 60-year member of the Sheet Metal Workers Union. His apprenticeship started at Local #10 Newark, NJ. He then relocated to South Jersey joining Local #43 and became President. With the merger he then became a member of Local #27 until his retirement from the John Sykes Co. He was a past Grand Knight and Life member of the Knights of Columbus. He also received the honor of Knight of The Year. Joseph was a 47-year member of Elks Lodge 2428 and was an avid NY Giants fan, but the sport closest to his heart was baseball from the Brooklyn Dodgers to the NY Mets. His sage advice to his beloved granddaughter Jaelyn was "Hold on, we don't have brakes!"

Hanselmann, Daughters; Theresa (Lloyd) Vosseller, Mary (John) Koerwer, Jennifer (Johnnathan) Quaye, sons; Joseph (Marie) Hanselmann, Robert (Catherine) Hanselmann, nine grandchildren; John, Joseph, Michelle, Steven, Michael, Noelle, Andrea, Gina, Jaelyn, five Step-grandchildren, brothers; Edward (Ena) Hanselmann, John (Amy) Hanselmann, sister; Barbara Hanselmann numerous nieces and nephews and partner in fun Jack Kelly.
