Joe Paul Necas was born on August 6, 1931 to Joseph and Anna Necas in Eagle Nest, New Mexico. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Shirley, daughter Debra and sisters Emily Tibljas and Rose Mutz. He is survived by two sisters, Mary Carpenter of Englewood, CO and Anna Packard of Iowa, two daughters, Cozette McCarty Pease of Fruita, CO, Cathy Necas of Littleton, CO, son Joe Paul Necas Jr., as well as granddaughter Paytyn Necas of Golden, CO.

Joe grew up in Eagle Nest and always stated he would never trade his childhood days for anything. He had some great stories that he shared with family throughout the years. One he spoke of often was how he and a friend were at the Laguna Vista Lodge when the FBI came in to bust up the gambling that was going on in the back room. Joe and his friend helped the agents carry out the tables and slot machines and then looked on as the items were chopped up with axes. Later that night Joe and his friend returned with a flashlight and went through the dirt and picked up all the loose change they found and stuffed their pockets. Joe ended up with enough money to buy a brand new pair of cowboy boots.

After completing his first year of high school he began working until he enlisted into the Marine Corps. He fought in the Korean war and proudly served his country. That journey would be the first and only time he traveled outside of the United States.

Joe was a hardworking man. He held many jobs before he finally was hired on at the Adolph Coors Container Company in 1968 as a can line worker retiring in 1993 as a supervisor after 25 years of service. After retiring, Joe spent a great deal of time in Eagle Nest working on various projects throughout the years including maintaining the house in which he was born that was built by his father.

Joe loved music and enjoyed playing the guitar and dancing at family gatherings. He enjoyed the outdoors and spent a lot of time fishing and hunting through the years. As he got older he enjoyed gambling and would go to Black Hawk often with his wife Shirley. He also enjoyed watching the Bronco's.

In the past couple of years as his health and physical abilities began to fail, he became more withdrawn. His family takes great comfort in knowing that he is once again able to move freely and without pain. Being the family man that he was, he'll be watching over us as a guardian angel and he'll be having a grand old time with all those who passed before him. Who knows, if you listen closely, you might hear him yell ''Play something hot Catsy!" and the music will begin.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations may be made to your charity of choice.

A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, September 9, 2013, Olinger Woods Chapel at 10:00am. A reception will be held following the Service at Olinger Woods. Inurnment with Military Honors at Golden Cemetery will be at 12:30pm.
