Born in Switzerland in February of 1927, Joseph went on to complete his schooling in languages (he spoke six). At the age of 23 he emigrated from Switzerland to Canada, working on a farm in Montreal and a bank in Toronto. He tried his hand at working on a gold dredge in the Yukon Territory.

Eventually, he settled on a career in the travel industry. He worked for Swissair in New York City, Varig Airlines in Los Angeles and PanAm in Honolulu. In 1968 he moved his young family to Greeley, CO to work as the manager of United Bank Travel. He retired from the bank in 1983, moved back to Switzerland and finally returned to Greeley in 2001 where he spent his remaining years gardening and enjoying the outdoors.

He traveled all over the world, studied yoga in India, read books on philosophy and religion, and was a master gardener.

He was married to Gail Weiss (deceased in 2012) in 1962 and they had three children, Athena Mills in Boulder, CO, David in San Jose, CA and Daniel, who lives in Switzerland. He has seven grandchildren.

In 1981 he married Nina Davenport. They had one son, Gabriel, who lives in Boulder, CO.

He is also survived by five brothers; Walter in Toronto, Canada, Bernhard in Golden, CO, Zeno in Phoenix, AZ, Theodore in Golden, CO and Othmar in Switzerland. One brother, Franz, died in Switzerland in 2001 at the age of 76.

Joseph passed away peacefully at home in Greeley with family present on July 8, 2019.

There will be a celebration of life gathering on Sunday, July 21, 2019 at the Clubhouse at Remington Post Condominiums in Boulder, CO from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Family and friends are welcome to come and share stories and memories of our dear Joseph, who was so greatly loved and will be so sorely missed.
