Rudolph "Beau" Misiazek Jr., 70, of Taylorsville, passed away, Monday, April 8, 2019, at Frye Regional Medical Center.

Born January 17, 1949, in Waterbury Connecticut, he was the son of the late Rudolph Misiazek and Lucille Gelinas Joubert. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy C. Misiazek and brother-in-law Bruce Baker.

Beau was a Veteran of the United States Army serving in the Vietnam War. His quick wit and dry sense of humor were ever present and he always had a comeback. He was a lover of Rock music and was a Western enthusiast whose knowledge of the genre was unsurpassed.

Those left to cherish his memory include his step-daughter, Erin Cantwell of Ayre, MA, sister Elaine Misiazek Baker of Hickory, NC, step-father John "Jack" Joubert of Hilton Head, SC; nephews, Wayne Santos of York, ME, Kenny Descoteaux of Auburn, NY; nieces Renee Webb of Ocala, FL, Cheryl Grant of Hilton Head, SC, and several cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Family will have a private memorial service at a later date.

Bass-Smith Funeral Home of Hickory is honored to serve the family of Rudolph "Beau" Misiazek, Jr.
