January 1, Famous Obama Adversary Passes Away



Joseph Wurzelbacher, the blue-collar worker widely recognized as “Joe the Plumber” for his notable confrontation with then-Presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2007, has tragically passed away at age 49.

News of Wurzelbacher’s passing on Sunday morning was confirmed by the Western Journal. It was known that he had been battling stage 3 pancreatic cancer leading up to his untimely death.

A resident of Ohio, Wurzelbacher was thrust into the national discourse during the 2008 election season when he directly challenged Obama on his proposed tax hikes, particularly on how they might affect small business owners like himself.

Many conservatives lauded him, seeing in him a reflection of hardworking Americans who felt they would bear the brunt of Obama’s fiscal policies.

In a heartfelt post, Derek Hunter, a close associate of Wurzelbacher, expressed his sorrow on social media:

“Horrible news. My good friend Joe Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, passed away this morning at the age of 49 from pancreatic cancer. He was a good man and an exceptional friend.”

To help alleviate some of the financial burdens placed upon the Wurzelbacher family due to his medical treatment, a GiveSendGo fundraiser was initiated. By Sunday, compassionate Americans had already raised over $120,000 in support.

The campaign detailed, “Toledo native, Joe ‘The Plumber’ Wurzelbacher, was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic cancer. Joe, honoring his country as a Military Veteran, is under the care of the Ann Arbor VA Hospital and the University of Michigan Hospital.”

Always one to remain resilient even in the face of adversity, Wurzelbacher once told Faithwire, “God doesn’t promise us an easy road. He just promises to be there for us when we go on these roads.”

He leaves behind his beloved wife, Katie, and their three cherished children. As conservatives mourn his passing, they also celebrate his unwavering commitment to the causes he held dear.
