He is survived by his beloved wife Sarah Orth Peroutka and his loving children Leah Meagan and Julia Anne Peroutka. Joe is further survived by other dear relatives and many friends. Joe was a loving family man, and at all times his first priority was his beloved wife and children. He loved nothing more than spending time with his family, and entertaining friends. Joe was a history major and enjoyed going to civil war meetings. Stamp collecting was a passion of his. He was also a civic minded individual, and enjoyed his work with the
and the Milwaukee Zoological Society. Joe's business interests included the Ph. Orth Company as a Purchasing Manager, and he was proud of his involvement with helping build the Palermo Pizza Company, as a Purchasing Executive.

He also found his spiritual home by joining the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist.
