Joe was a member of St. Gertrude Parish. He was a longtime resident of Seymour, where he owned and operated several businesses. His faith and family were the main priorities in his life.

Joseph was preceded in death by a son, Joseph M. Zarick; and a daughter, Suzanne Zarick Mosbey.

The funeral mass will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at St. Gertrude Parish, 6543 Miami Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio.
