Joe enjoyed following college basketball. He liked to watch Cincinnati Reds baseball on television or just sitting by the radio to listen to them.  He was fond of many kinds of foods and desserts.  Joe and his brother Ralph would faithfully attend many of the area’s church picnics and enjoyed the dinners that were served there.  They could often be found tending to their garden and when the vegetables would ripen, they would pick and can them to enjoy later.  Joe’s true passion though was farming.  He could be seen working in the fields early in the morning and wouldn’t come in until after it was dark. 

He is survived by his brother Ralph Dierckman of Batesville and his sister Cleora “Sis” Kuntz of Brookville, Indiana; numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.  In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sisters Dolores Reer and Roberta Brunsman; brothers Milton and Elmer Dierckman.

David Kobak, O.F.M. officiating.  The burial will follow in the church cemetery, with military graveside rites conducted by the Batesville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post # 3183 and the Prell-Bland American Legion Post #271 of Batesville.  The family requests memorials to the Rosemary and Melanie Dierckman Oldenburg Academy Scholarship or the Morris Fire Department.
