Obituary of Joseph J. Szoke
Loveland, CO — Joseph Janos Szoke came to the United States escaping war-torn Hungary in 1956. He was 18 years old and became a naturalized citizen of the United States; he later met and married his one true love in Cleveland, Ohio. He later moved to Loveland, Colorado in 1971 for an amazing job opportunity. He lived in Larimer County for the remainder of his life during which time he built the family home. He worked and retired from Hewlett-Packard.
Joseph enjoyed living in mountains. He loved hiking, snow-shoeing, and spending time with his dogs. He was very active in his church community.
Joseph is survived by his daughters, Melinda Hummer, Monika Valdez, and Ramona Szoke. He is also survived six grandchildren: Zachary Szoke-Valdez, Joshua Moore, Rachael Moore, David Moore, Elijah Moore, and Parker Szoke-Dryer.
Graveside services will be held on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 9:00 AM at Loveland Burial Park.
Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there -- I do not die.
