Joseph T. Shickles, age 60 of Janesville died peacefully on Thursday, December 27, 2018 in his home surrounded by loving family.The guidance and support of Agrace Hospice was invaluable. He was born on July 10, 1958 in St. Louis, MO, the first son of Joseph and Barbara Shickles. On June 17, 1996, he married Carol D. Swanson. Joseph worked in various trades as an ironworker, steeplejack, carpenter and stonemason. He had an indomitable spirit for creative invention and built his own hydroplane, rebuilt a wooden boat from tinder and a 1979 Harley shovelhead from scrap parts. Joe was a patriot who loved his country and the Constitution. Joe's passion for freedom and truth, love of family, fun, and hard work will live on in the hearts and minds of those he's touched. He will be deeply missed.
He is survived by his wife, Carol Swanson and his two daughters, Amanda Shickles and Emily Shickles, all of Janesville, WI.
Following Joe’s wishes, no services will be held.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). Those who are raised to life on a restored paradise earth will have the prospect of never again being subjected to misery, sickness, and death (Revelation 21:4). These and other comforting Bible verses and thoughts can be found at

The best memories I have of Joe are of him coming by our home to sneak a peek of the newest gadgets that were being worked on and him having to rush home as to not to miss the bus and meet his daughters. He was always so proud to have us over to show off his creations in his shop. Years later he was my volunteer when I went through my reiki attunements. I had no faith in all I was learning, he so easily placed his faith in me. Through the years I have had many memories of Joe, but these are the dearest and the ones I shall choose to hold close. May love and light be with Joe as he journies and for his family in this time.
