Joseph Anthony Rothschadl, Jr. was born Thursday, August 29, 1946 at Scotland, South Dakota to Joseph and Lillian (Cihak) Rothschadl. He attended country school through the 8th grade. For many years, Joe worked on the family farm five miles northeast of Tyndall with his brothers, Roger and Robert. Together they farmed the land, harvested grain, and tended their cattle. In 2004, he and Roger retired from farming and moved into Tyndall.   Throughout his life, Joe loved a good conversation and visits with family and friends. Whether it was over a cup of coffee, at a farm sale, or in a chair at Ptak Lumber, he never missed an opportunity to chat. Later in life, Joe enjoyed walking around Tyndall and driving in the countryside. Joe spent many hours volunteering at the Senior Citizen Center in Tyndall and rarely missed a Mass at St. Leo Catholic Church. Joe was dedicated to the church and also served as an usher for several years. After Roger’s passing in 2008, Joe moved into the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall where he lived until his death on Friday, December 20, 2013 at the age of 67 years, 3 months, and 22 days.
Joe is survived by his brother, Robert (Nancy) Rothschadl of Scotland; one sister, Rose Gebhart of Marshall, Minnesota; six nieces and nephews: Scott Rothschadl, Kim (Mark) Brown, Stacie (Rick) Wagner, Craig Rothschadl, Cathy (Mike) Cuka, and Chris (Tyler) Lehman; eleven great-nieces and great-nephews; one uncle, Charles Cihak of Ft. Worth, Texas; and one sister-in-law, Sue Rothschadl of Tyndall.
Preceding Joe in death are his parents, Joseph and Lillian Rothschadl; and two brothers, Richard and Roger Rothschadl.

Rose and family, So very sorry to hear of your brother's passing. I met Joey a few times thru the years and he was quite the talker :) We will be thinking of you during this difficult time and praying that you will be comforted as you grieve. Jean and Monte
