I can’t find the words. I just spent the past half hour in shock and crying. It’s not fair to me. I didn’t get a message, I didn’t even see a notification for his service. I’m not really mad at anyone other than myself for not even trying to stop by or message to come and study with him. I just started coming back to the Grove. But I know that man has won against this world. I remember David Ames telling me he said something along the lines of him beating the enemy no matter what. The battle for his soul was already won. So whether the illness took him or not, the enemy was not gonna win. I miss him so much.

Dear Fiebig Family and Friends,

As we watched the bits and pieces of Joe’s life float in front of our eyes, we were struck with sadness that we didn’t really get to know Joe on a personal level. It’s clear that he sent out many arrows (Psalm 127), and that many will continue to be blessed by the irreversible blessings of Joe’s love. While we sadly missed out, we are joyful that we are flying with his arrows at The Grove and thus, are still blessed. May the Lord comfort all of you, and may you be encouraged by a life well-lived – we certainly are.
Blessings, prayer and love to you all,
Phil and Karin Young

Joe was the first person we met when we came to the Grove a couple years ago. I noticed he was carrying a shofar and we talked at length about it. After that, whenever we came back to the Grove, I always looked forward to saying hello to him at the entrance or somewhere in the back. My condolences to his family. I will miss not seeing him at the church.

Through the many, many years of knowing and being a part of your life, though recent years found us distant, our fondness and love for both of you, Joe and Cathy, has never waned. Our hearts are truly hurting. Our hopes and prayers are that Joe is on a safe passage to his next destination in the care of his Lord and all that have known him are now without a true friend. We will deeply miss you Joe. May you rest in peace.

Joe was an amazing man with a huge heart for people, especially kids. He always had a smile on his face and something funny to say. He and Cathy have set a wonderful example as a godly couple and family. He will be missed.

Joe and Cathy have been wonderful role models living in Christ’s Way. We are all better people for counting Joe among our friends.

Prayers & love to all of you.

Ann Debish-Minor 2020-03-12T06:40:34

Cathy and family, we are simultaneously grieved yet joyful that Joe is with Jesus. We remember him as that “crazy guy” who could get our dog to behave when we certainly couldn’t (!), with a tough exterior but an inner heart of gold. We pray for God’s comfort and provision for all of you. Love, Keith, Barb, Zack, & Jessie Stachurski

Barb Stachurski 2020-03-12T05:41:03

Joe you will be missed you touched my life in a special way loved being at Royal family Kids camp with you and your smiling face when ever we met you and Cathy were a wonderful blessing to all who knew you.God Bless my brother I will see you again in Glory.
