Adolf "Joe" Germann, 88, died October 4, 2021 at his home in Van Wert.
He was born January 10, 1933 to the late Kletus and Hulda (Merkle) Germann.
Joe was a machinist at Federal Mogul for 35 plus years and a farmer for life.
He graduated from The Ohio State University with a bachelors in Agriculture.
Joe dedicated his entire life to his farms and was said to be a hard worker. In his later years, he couldn't do the farming that he would have liked to, but he surely liked to "back seat farm".
Joe was a member of the VFW and the American Legion. Aside from farming, he liked to travel and cheer on The Ohio State Buckeyes.
He is survived by his children; Phil (Loretta) Germann of Ohio City and Nancy (Tim) Reier of St. Mary's, a brother; Henry Germann of Middle Point, eight grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents and a sister; Maggie Germann.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Van Wert VFW Post # 5803 or the American Red Cross.
A memorial service will be held at Pleasant View Church at a time and date that is to be determined.
