LTC (ret) Joseph D. Quinn passed away peacefully at Tucson Medical Center on April 4, 2019, at the age of 66.

A funeral service will be held at 10:30 am, Tuesday, April 9 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 1655 S. Del Sol Avenue. Following services, he will be buried at the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery with full military honors.

Joe is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Connie R. Quinn and their children (and spouses): Jacob Quinn (Amy), Joshua Quinn (Heather), Jennifer Layton (Sam), Jeremiah Quinn (Bailey), and 13 ½ grandchildren, who mourn his loss.

He was an incredible husband, father, grandfather, brother, soldier, pool boy, neighbor and friend. Family was his first priority - he was happy that his family is forever he and did whatever he could to build and strengthen family ties.  Within his family he presided, provided and protected. As a father, he taught us the important things: to show kindness; serve others; carry a knife; check the oil; take time to fish and boat; chocolate can be considered medicine; we are all children of God and treat everyone like your brother; your dog is family.  All who knew him could tell countless stories of kindness and love he shared with everyone he met.  He was devoted to family, church and his country.

He grew up in Littleton, Colorado with his siblings Kay, Frank, Tom, Jim, and John, and graduated from the University of Colorado, where he was commissioned as an Army 2LT. During his 28 years of active duty military service, his family joined him in traveling around the world, earning him the loving nickname “GI Joe”, his wife, “Connie the Barbarian,” and their wild bunch of children “the hoooligans”. After retiring from the military, he continued to serve as a Department of the Army civilian until he medically retired.

In lieu of flowers, Joe would have loved for you to spend the money on making a wonderful new memory with your family.
