February 10, 1951 - February 6, 2022
Joseph Francis Foucault, 70, of Essexville, came into this world on February 10th, 1951, to the late Francis and Maureen (Kuhn) Foucault in Bay City. On February 6th 2022, he passed peacefully with the love of his life Di by his side. Joe worked for years in the grocery industry and then later as a butcher. He loved chatting with customers and brightening the day of each stranger. The job he was most proud of was being Mr. Mom. He lived for loving and caring for his family, and he cherished that time at home with his children. Joe was the most wonderful husband and father because being selfless, loving and kind came natural to him. His children never went a day without knowing how much they were loved by him and always will be. He was a man that radiated light and love. To know Joe was to love Joe because he was an anomaly. For Joe, his family was everything to him. He loved playing poker with his son Chad at the kitchen table, his special breakfast dates with his daughter Ashley and the 57 of his 70 years on this earth that he spent holding the hand of his best friend, Di. Joe became the happiest man in the world on August 21, 1971, the day he married Diane. Of all of Joe’s accomplishments in his life, the largest and greatest one was his marriage. The love they shared was impenetrable. It was as though someone wrote their great love story and threw it into the stars. They built a home full of warmth, light, and laughter, and they bonded it with love. Joe welcomed all into that home with an infectious smile stretched across his face and his arms widely outstretched for a hug. Joe had magical hugs. When he wrapped his arms around you he could take your pain, and fears and just melt them all away. Even if just for few moments, he made you feel safe, and like you could finally breathe again. He would always whisper that everything was going to be okay as he rocked you his arms, which made you believe it because for those few precious seconds you saw yourself the way he saw you. He was pure. He was a gift. He was a phenomenon. He was ours. “I will love you forever and ever… and then some.” – Di Leaving to carry on Joe’s zest for life, is his adoring wife of 50 years, Diane; his children, Chad and Ashley Foucault; close family friend, Kelly Beelman; father-in-law, Ray Swiercz; sisters, Kathy (Leo) Beson, and Ann (Kerry) O’Tool; brother, Patrick (Jen) Foucault; sister-in-laws, Yvonne Swiercz (Harry Sauve), and Cindy (Mark) Johnson; brother-in-laws, Mark (DeAnne) Swiercz, and Dave (Cindy) Swiercz. Joe also leaves behind several nieces and nephews. Joe was welcomed home by his parents, Francis and Maureen Foucault; mother-in-law, Geraldine Swiercz; and sister-in-law, Pam Swiercz. Please join us in grieving his passing, showing him our love, and celebrating the man he was.
