Joseph H Pantos
Our hero and warrior, Cowboy Joe, Uncle Joe, Gruncle Joe, Ole man Joe, Grandpa Joe, and most commonly Cadillac Joe, passed away June 12, 2019 peacefully surrounded by his family.
He was born in Salt Lake City to Bill and Della Pantos, he grew up on the “west side” with a group of guys that were his lifelong friends. He was drafted into the army in 1954. He served 2 years in Germany. After he returned, he went back to the Boilermakers union where he would spend the rest of his working years. He married his beloved Mrs. P. Martha Redmond in 1962. They settled on a small farm in Utah County and began their family. Family values and hard work were very important to him. His loving hands, big heart, strong arms, honesty and integrity are the pillars of many lives and the very things that made him a legend. He used his love for old cars to bring all of us together. From working the cars together, to family outings to car shows, that built an unbreakable bond.
He was a member of The Knights of Columbus for over 50 years holding all offices of the local council, including Grand Knight, and several years in state offices. He helped build the original building of St. Peters Parish as well as helping with the church addition and the rectory.
Preceded in death by his parents Bill and Della Pantos, his brothers Nick and George. He is survived by his wife Martha (Redmond), his sister Patricia Kathleen Jones, his children: Jonette, Andrea, Joseph, and Nick (Keli), 11 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren.
