Obituary

Joseph Francis Mead passed away on September 5, 2019 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after a long battle with cancer. He was 71 years old. Joe leaves behind his wife of 45 years, Cynthia Lee Stevens Mead, along with their four children, Melessa Elizabeth Mead Rantz (Edward J. Rantz, Jr.) of River Ridge, LA, Patricia Colleen Mead Puccio(Gabriel P. Puccio) of Prairieville, LA, Tommy Funez Mead (Kelsey Ballard Mead) of Baton Rouge, LA and Matthew Joseph Mead of Baton Rouge, LA; five grandchildren, Holly Elizabeth Rantz, Olivia Gabriella Puccio, Riley Joseph Puccio, Caroline McKillip Rantz and Andrew Patrick Puccio; one brother, Charles Stanley Mead (Amy L. Mead) of Baton Rouge, LA; niece, Lauren D. Mead and nephew, Sean T. Mead, and many cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Howard Mead and Mildred Robinson Mead. Joe earned his degree in electrical engineering from Louisiana State University and went on to work in that field until he retired in 2007 from Riverbend Nuclear Plant in St. Francisville, Louisiana. He was a man of many talents such as building furniture, singing, playing guitar and cooking, but what he was best at was being a husband, a daddy and a grandpa. It was clear to any and all who met him that his family was his pride and his joy. He told everyone he met about all the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren, and was not at all humble about doing so. When someone would tell him how precious his grandchildren were, he would always respond with, “Yes, they are” instead of “Thank you.” He went to every dance recital, awards ceremony, grandparent mass, musical, church performance, ball game, graduation, closing program and play in which he had a grandchild. He was at his happiest when surrounded by his family. Joe was active in his church and enjoyed all of his church family at St. Matthew the Apostle Orthodox Church. Visitation for Joe will be held at Charlet Funeral Home in Zachary, LA on Sunday, September 8, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Monday, September 9, 2019 at St. Matthew the Apostle Orthodox Church at 13333 Coursey Blvd. Baton Rouge, LA from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. followed by Divine Liturgy at 11:00 a.m. He will be laid to rest at Garden of Memories in Metairie, Louisiana at 2:15 p.m.. Pallbearers will be Matthew Mead, Eddie Rantz, Gabe Puccio, Caleb Schmidt,Christopher Puccio, Olivia Puccio and Mike Cowan. Honorary Pallbearers will be Tommy Mead, Riley Puccio and Andrew Puccio.

Joe was a long time co-worker and good friend. He always had a smile on his face and a story to tell about his family. I had not seen him in a while but was glad he was able to join me and several other retirees for lunch some months back. Still had a smile on his face and it was great to see him again. I'll treasure the memories. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers with Cindy and the entire family.

Joe was always interested in math and science during his days at Connally High School. He was an active member of the JETS club in high school. Joe was always willing to pull a joke on someone. He was large in SIZE AND IN HIS HEART with his high school friends He will be greatly missed. His health problems prevented his return to high school reunions. On the phone Joe was always positive and upbeat when he was asked about his condition. He was extremely caring and kind. My sympathy goes out to his family after such a long fight with Cancer!
