Dr. Joseph Lawrence Wysocki of Amissville, VA passed away on January 13, 2020 at the age of 75. He was known for his infectious laugh, gregarious personality, and love for life. Joseph earned his Bachelor's from Drexel University, Master's from Penn State University, and a PhD from Cornell University. He went on to have a successful career in the housing field working at universities throughout the country and retired in 2010 from the United States Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture. In his retirement, he loved spending time with friends and family, enjoying Polish food, genealogy, gardening, reading, and traveling throughout Europe including to Poland, the birthplaces of his grandparents. He is survived by his wife, his three daughters, and the joys of his life, his three granddaughters who affectionately referred to him as their "Dziadzi Joe," Polish for grandpa. He liked helping those less fortunate and volunteered and served lunch at Manna Ministry in Culpeper in recent years. He also was a proud liberal and active with the Culpeper Democrats. A Celebration of Life will be held at Fauquier Springs Country Club in Warrenton, VA on Sunday, February 2 at 11:30 AM. In lieu of flowers, contributions to organizations dear to Joe would be appreciated including Fauquier County Habitat for Humanity (www.fauquierhabitat.org), Manna Ministry (www.culpeperpresbyterian.org/manna), and Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth (nazarethcsfn.org).
