Joseph "Joe" Louis Vacca

June 10, 1948 — January 21, 2018

Joseph Louis "Joe" Vacca was born in Arlington, VA on June 10, 1948, the only child of Gene A and Nan Vacca. He graduated from Catholic University in Washington DC in 1948 and joined the Benedictine Monastery of St Anselm in Manchester, NH. In 1976 he gradated from Creighton Law School, then joined the Army as a lieutenant commanding the 2nd platoon 759 MP battalion at Ft Dix, NJ. He married Mary Lee Koops on April 1, 1977. He returned to Omaha in 1979 and was admitted to the bar. He worked as an attorney in Omaha for many years. He retired in 2002 to devote himself full time to his great loves: model railroading, spiritual reading and writing, and his parish, St Vincent of Lerins. He entered into peaceful rest on January 21, 1918, after many illnesses that deprived him of the live he wished to lead. His vast knowledge, unfailing wit and courage in the face of adversity will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Mary Lee, and his loving son James, of whom he was justly proud, and his son-in-law Chris Sutton. He is preceded in death by his parents, Gene and Nan Vacca.
