Joseph F. Erker, of Boca Raton, peacefully passed away on Nov. 21st just 2 weeks shy of his 92nd birthday.
Born Dec. 6, 1931 in Brooklyn, NY. Joe proudly served in the Navy from 1951-1955 and, after being discharged, married the love of his life, Connie. After joining IBM in NY as an Industrial Engineer, he was transferred to Boca Raton, FL. In 1967, they bought their home in Boca Square and never left. After taking an early retirement from IBM at age 58, he worked as a golf starter at the Boca Raton Resort and Club for over 25 years. Golf was his greatest passion and being on the golf course every day was just where he wanted to be. Joe knew how to have fun and to enjoy life to the fullest and it was a life well lived!
Joe is survived by his bride of 68 years, Connie Erker, his daughter, Connie LoMonaco, son-in-law Philip and 3 grandchildren, Joseph, Michael and Christie.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 25th at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Boca Raton. Military Honors will follow the Mass at the Church.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you consider making a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in memory of Joseph Erker.
