May 26, 1930 - Oct. 28, 2011
As an eagle soars so gracefully, he reached out and gently took Joe on his wings as he soared into heaven on Oct. 28, 2011, from his home on the river.
Joseph Frank Kacena was born May 26, 1930, in Chicago to Joe Kacena and Catherine (Conn) Kacena.
Joe owned and operated Joe Kacena Tile Service for more than
60 years. Joe loved to cook, fish, spend time with family and friends; but most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his wife, Char.
Joe served in the U.S. Army from 1950-51. He was stationed in Korea. Joe was also a member of the Elks Lodge in Winona.
Joe is survived by his wife, Char; daughter Kathy (Fred) Gvillo of N.C.; stepchildren, Ceres (Michael) Law of Loganville, Ga.; Pat Stenberg of Winona; grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Per Joe's wishes, a celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
