Obituary

Harry “Joe” Otto Radke, Jr., 66, of Allegan, MI passed away Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Wings of Hope Home. Born December 22, 1952 in Allegan, he was the son of the late Harry Otto Radke, Sr. and Mary Grace (Walsh) Radke and was the husband of Andrea Jean (Holland) Radke. Mr. Radke had been a delivery driver since in high school starting with Culligan and, ending, with Avon products delivered to the “Avon Ladies.” Harry was a huge music fan and collected vinyl records, 8-track tapes, cassette tapes, CDs and finally back to vinyl records again throughout his lifetime. He had over one thousand vinyl albums and was always on the search for more at record stores and rummage sales. Classic rock, especially The Beatles, was his favorite, but he collected all genres and loved to research the history of the musicians. Harry also enjoyed taking long rides while listening to music. He was also a big fan of the early James Bond movies and firmly believed that Sean Connery was the best to ever play the role of 007.

In addition to his wife of thirty-two years, Andrea, Harry is survived by a son, Dylan Cody Radke; a brother, David “Butch” (Debbie) Radke; sister-in-law, Audrey (Steve) Dominique; brother-in-law, Rick (Teresa) Holland; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A funeral service will take place on Friday, May 3, 2019 at 11:00 AM at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Oakwood Cemetery.

Harry was friends with my older siblings when I was in grade school - Jr high. There was a time growing up he was at our home often and seemed part of our family. When I was about 11 - 12 years old, Harry had an influence on my Christian faith and my confession of Jesus as my Lord, although I don't think he ever knew how much of an influence he had on me. I moved away from Allegan when I was 18 and haven't seen Harry since then, but I will not forget him, his long hair, and his sense of humor. I look forward to the hope of Christ's return.
