Joseph Goldade, age 92, passed away on May 31, 2022, at Holy Rosary Hospital Miles City, MT surrounded by family.

Joe, as everyone knew him, was born on January 19, 1930, in Timberlake, SD, to Thomas and Regina Goldade on the family farm. He was one of 6 siblings. He attended school through the 8th grade and later received his GED. He was enlisted in the Marines.

When Joe returned, he married the love of his life Connie June Jaeger on September 7, 1954. In the early years they moved to Fargo, ND for Joe to attend Barber School. They moved to Lemmon, SD where Joe barbered. Finally, they settled in Miles City, Montana and started their family. They had 4 wonderful children; Randy, Debbie, Jim, and Rick. Joe continued to barber on the same corner of Main Street for over 40 years. Joe was an icon at barbering and made thousands of Miles City men and the surrounding communities more handsome with their fresh haircuts from Joe. He also barbered for veterans at the Veteran’s Hospital. Joe was also an active member in the Elks for over 50 years. He met most everyday with the men’s coffee club at Big Sky Pharmacy.

Joe is preceded in death by his parents, his sister and two brothers. He is survived by his wife Connie, children, Randy (Kim), Debbie (Sam) Meadors of Billings, Jim (Jolyn) of Virginia, Rick (Michael) of Arizona, his grandchildren Jetton (Kyle) Ailes, Brett (Wes) Richard, Jessica (Carl) Swanson, Coulton (Susan), Juston, and Janeece Goldade, great grandchildren, Brody and Trace Ailes, Maximus Richard, and baby James Goldade. He is also survived by his brothers Valentine (Regina) and Tony, his in-laws Jerry and Darlene Jaeger, Robin and Jean Jaeger, Mike and Ramona Jaeger, LeeAnn Jaeger and their families and numerous nieces and nephews.
