William Joseph Burchett, better known as Joe, passed away on November 20, 2021, at his residence.

He was born on Feb. 14, 1979, to Barbara Copley and William L. Burchett in Warsaw. Joe was a graduate of Warsaw Community High School. He married his high school sweetheart, Shonda Brown Burchett on April 22, 2000, in Forest Hills, Ky. They shared 21 years of loving and fulfilling marriage together.  

He worked at Drudge Screw Products for 20 years, which later became Global Precision Parts. Joe loved the simple things in life. He was a wonderful cook, loved fishing and enjoyed quiet time reading and doing diamond puzzles. His favorite moments in life were when his family and friends gathered together to enjoy each other’s company and share a meal. Joe’s greatest joy in life was being a husband and father.

Joe is survived by his wife, Shonda; daughter, Madison Burchett; son, Wyatt Burchett, all of Warsaw; brother, Christopher Burchett, of Warsaw; sister, Suzanne Burchett Bechtold, of Wabash; and mother, Barbara, of Warsaw. He was preceded in death by his father, William, and sister, Katie Jo Burchett.
