Joseph Paul Soberick

May 28, 2024

Joseph Paul Soberick born March 26, 1957, in Honolulu, Hawaii, died suddenly on May 28, 2024, in Currituck County, North Carolina. “Uncle Joe” as he was affectionately known, had dedicated his life to the Lord and treated everyone with respect and kindness. He graduated from Norfolk Catholic High School in 1975 and enlisted in the U. S. Army where he served until his retirement after 21 years of service. He then worked for the U. S. Postal Service until finally retiring as a supervisor in 2021. During much of his time in the U. S. Army and with the U. S. Postal Service “Uncle Joe” was stationed on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, where he leaves many cherished friends and where family would often come to visit.

Upon retirement “Uncle Joe” purchased an RV and traveled extensively with his beloved dog Bear, reconnecting with family, and visiting many National Parks and monuments. When he wasn’t on the road, he would stay with his nephew Christopher Willis in Davenport, Florida. “Uncle Joe” leaves a legacy of genuineness and kindness to others. He was a friend to everyone and helped anyone who needed it. His favorite formal wear was a Hawaiian shirt and flip flops, and his casual wear was a t-shirt and flip flops.

He was predeceased in death by his parents, Thomas and Anne Soberick and a sister, Barbara Jean Willis. He is survived by his sister, Mary Ann Linkenhoger, a brother, Michael T. Soberick & spouse Jean. Along with numerous nieces and nephews including those with whom he had a special bond with, Christina Willis, Eric Willis and Christopher Willis were numerous cousins and extended family members as well as his Ohana family in Hawaii.“Uncle Joe” will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.

The family is discussing a remembrance celebration for a later date. Special thanks go out to the Currituck Fire and Rescue Squad and to the staff of KOA Campground, Coinjock, North Carolina for their assistance and compassion.
