In memoriam: Joe Los

Posted by on 3 in In Memoriam

Joe Los, a familiar face at Macatawa since the ’70s, died Thursday, November 1, 2018.  Joe is survived by his wife, Pam, and daughters Caitlin (Barrett) Randolph of Holland and Alexandra Los of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; his grandchildren Adeliza, Liam and Saoirse Randolph; and father-in-law Ward Dobbin of Macatawa.

A teacher, builder, and artist by profession and inclination, Joe graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1971 with a B.S. in Industrial Technology.  After moving to Michigan in 1976, he pursued his teaching certification; he then taught in Saugatuck for several years while building a house in Laketown in his “spare” time.  Although he would never lose his love of teaching, a pink slip from Saugatuck allowed him to jump into constructions full-time.  In addition to building new homes, Joe soon found his passion restoring cottages along the lakeshore–especially in Macatawa.  He will be missed.
