Joseph Lewkowitz Jr. of Middletown passed away on Jan. 3, 2012, after a long fight with diabetes and the complications that came with it.


His loving wife and caregiver of 54 years, Clarine, was by his side along with his children.


His survivors include his wife, Clarine; daughter, Vicki Lewkowitz (Paul Moore) of Middletown; son, Joseph Lewkowitz III (Theresa) of South San Francisco; son, Wade Lewkowitz (Christine) of Elk Grove and daughter Sarah Bucini (Craig) of Pacifica. He also leaves eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren; brothers, Jack and Victor; sisters, Terry, Fran and Darlene.


He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Charles.


Joe was born in Silver City, New Mexico, on March 27, 1935, to Joseph Sr. and Sarah Lewkowitz.


He proudly served his country in the US Air Force from 1954 to 1958. After returning, he landed a few different jobs but then became employed by Local 38 Steam-Fitters Union out of San Francisco. He was a proud Union worker and retired after 30 years.


Joe and Clarine moved to Lake County in 1984 and settled in Middletown. Joe found he preferred working to retirement, so he took a position in the Middletown Unified School District. He worked in several positions and was most recently known as “Security Joe.” He retired from the school district in June of 2010.


In his time he was an avid fisherman, hunter and scuba diver. Growing up, baseball was his passion and it took him as far as trying out for the Pittsburgh Pirates as a pitcher. He was a faithful 49er and Giants fan and was a diehard Middletown High School Football supporter. He was a faithful member of the Lions Club, the NRA and was president of the Hobi Hobiknocker Club.


A celebration of life will be held at the Lions Club, 15399 Central Park Road in Middletown on Saturday, Jan. 21, at noon.


His family prefers that any donations in his name be made to the Middletown High School Booster Club or St. Joseph Catholic Church in Middletown.


He will be missed, but his family knows he is up in heaven with a whole new audience to entertain!
