Joseph Edward Greubel (Whitford)

Joseph Edward Greubel (Whitford), 58, of St. Louis, Mo., passed into spirit Jan. 17, 2018, in his home after a courageous 10-year battle with brain cancer.

Joe was the beloved son of Jan and Barbara (Greubel) Whitford of Jamestown. Besides his parents, Joe is survived by his wife, Mary Greubel, his son, Matthew Greubel, and grandsons Alex Greubel and Joseph Mateo Greubel. He’s also survived by his brothers, John Greubel of Longs, S.C., and Jeff Greubel of St. Louis.

Joe loved Jamestown and came here most every summer. An accomplished angler, he spent most of his time here fishing the bay. His picture, with a fat striper, adorns the wall at Zeek’s.

According to Joe’s wishes, his ashes will be scattered into the ocean at Beavertail. There, he will join his two younger brothers, who passed into spirit in 2012. The family requests prayers for all the families and victims of the devastating disease of cancer.

Joe, you fought a mighty fight, our sweet son. Truly, God saves the toughest battles for His bravest warriors.
