Joseph A. Hren – December 10, 2017

Joseph A. Hren, 59, of Uhrichsville, Ohio, lost his 2 ½ year battle with cancer on December 10, 2017. Joe was born on December 14, 1957, and was a son of the late Frank and Inez (Nazionale) Hren, Jr., living most of his life as a Uhrichsville resident.

A graduate of Claymont High School, Joe went on to attend Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, becoming diverse in both life and career. His most recent career endeavor was instrumentation and control contracting with nuclear power plants around the country, mostly with the Tennessee Valley Authority. He was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and a regular internet participant on Mike Holt’s Electrical Code Forum. Joe’s greatest joy came from helping others, along with events shared with family, friends, and colleagues.

Joe is survived by his brother, Robert (Lisa) Hren of Port Washington; sister, Loretta (Paul) Walker of New Philadelphia; nieces, René Frascone and Emma Hren; and nephews, Louie Hren and Steve Reffett.
