Joseph J. Lech


Lech, Joseph J., 68, of Richland. And the heavens opened on December 13, 2018 to a voice saying well done thy good and faithful servant.  Born October 30 1950 to the late Joseph and Mary (Hudak) Lech.  Survived by loving wife of 42 years Agnes (Vindish) Lech; daughter Kellie Martone; brother Robert (Beverly) Lech, and his favorite little man, his grandson Logan Martone.  Joseph had a very strong faith and was an avid member of St. Benedict Catholic Church, Geistown.  He served in the U.S. Air Force. Joseph retired from Penelec. At Joseph’s request there will be no public visitation and a private Funeral Mass will be held at the family’s convenience.  Joe is now free from pain and flying high with the angels. The family is being served by Harris Funeral Home, 500 Cherry Lane, Richland. (Online condolences may be posted to www.wharrisfuneralhome.com)

Oh Aggie, I was so sorry to hear of Joe's death. At times death is a blessing, no matter how much Joe will be missed.
I recall you telling me about fooling Joe on April Fool's Day at the sink using the spray attachment. It brought a smile to my face remembering that you could do that year after year.
You and Kelli and Logan will be in my thoughts and prayers, especially during this holiday season.
Sending a virtual hug.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him,he was one of the nicest guys from Penelec I knew. May God Bless you and your family,especially that little buddy of his.
