Joseph M. Rada, age 49, died unexpectedly on January 31, 2018 at his home in Bloomer. He was born on January 7, 1969 in Chippewa Falls to Joseph and Diane (Ruf) Rada. He married Kristina Satter on July 12, 1997 in Bloomer. Joseph worked as a machinist and was a true outdoorsman. He was a gun and reloading enthusiast and enjoyed hunting deer, coyote and bear. He took pride in how well his children could shoot a gun as well as their academic and athletic achievements.
