Obituary for Joseph Daniel Vasicek

Joseph Daniel Vasicek, 34 of Littleton, CO, born on September 9, 1987, passed away from a tragic car accident on April 30, 2022, in Highlands Ranch, CO.

Joseph “Joe Bear” was born in Leominster, MA and the youngest child to Sheila and David A. Vasicek. Joe was the son of an Army Serviceman and moved to various states throughout his childhood. He went to Greenbrier High School in Arkansas where he later transferred to Crossroads Alternative School and obtained his GED in 2005. Throughout his childhood, Joe was involved in various sports; he was a pitcher and third baseman in baseball and a defensive lineman in football. In 2007, Joe moved to Denver, CO where his family is originally from, to be closer to his older brother David M. Vasicek. Joe worked in the customer service industry for over 10 years until he found his dream job as a Payroll Specialist for traveling nurses in 2022.

People would say he had the “gift of gab” and always made people feel like they were heard, comfortable, and appreciated.
Joe met the love of his life, Chelsea Duran (Vasicek) in Aurora, CO in 2012 and later married in Boulder, CO on May 22, 2016. He proposed to Chelsea on Halloween night dressed as Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder and acted out as the character during the whole proposal in front of Chelsea’s family. Joe became the father of two beautiful children, Maellie (2013) and Everett (2017). Nothing meant more to him than being the best father and husband that he could possibly be. He worked extremely hard for his family to give them the best life possible. Even after a long day at work, he always made sure to wrestle around with the kids and spend as much time with them as he could. Joe was considered the Clark Griswold of all holidays and he and Chelsea would deck out their house inside and out for everyone to see and enjoy. Recently, Joe became a parent coach for the Ken Caryl Little League for the Little Royals and was looking forward to watching Everett grow in their love for baseball together.

One of Joe’s biggest passions was sports. He was a huge fan of the Colorado Rockies, the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, CU Buffs, Norte Dame, and especially the Denver Broncos. He would often joke that he bled orange and blue for his team and took his family to the Broncos training camp every summer. He knew anything and everything about sports. Joe enjoyed the outdoors such as fishing and camping and loved taking things a part and fixing them. His wife nicknamed him ‘Fix It Joe Bear’ and he even started a YouTube channel to help people learn how to fix certain things. He also had a huge passion for music and taught himself how to play the guitar.

Over the years, Joe met many friends and touched many hearts. Most would consider Joe more like family than a friend. One Joe’s love languages was to cook for people and made sure no one went hungry while he was around. He helped throw the best parties for his children and loved to entertain. He was loud, hilarious, and full of so much love for people, especially his family.

Joseph is preceded in death by his parents, Sheila Vasicek (Derr), and David A. Vasicek, as well as his son Everett Joseph Vasicek, 5. He is survived by his daughter, Maellie Vasicek, 8; wife, Chelsea Vasicek; brother, David M. Vasicek (Claire); niece Keely Vasicek, 14; and nephew Jack Vasicek, 6.
