Joseph Milton Struckmeyer (1951-2017)


On the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017, Joseph Struckmeyer passed away peacefully while surrounded by family. He’d been fighting cancer for over a year.

Joe’s first love was his family. His wife of 39 years Julie, his son and farming partner Alex, his daughter Molly and her husband Mike and their children Annalise and Henry.

He was known to many of his close friends as Papa Joe and to his grandchildren as Papa.

Joe’s other loves were many but included the SF Giants, farming, friends and those he championed, art, music, books, golf, talking to friends and strangers, talking about the issues.

Joe graduated from UC Davis in liberal arts and was a fifth-generation farmer in Colusa County. He enriched the lives of his family and friends.  He will be missed but live on in our hearts and through our memories.

Arrangements are under the direction of McNary-Moore Funeral Service – FD-410
