Marengo - Joseph Jacob Neptin was born March 23, 1984 in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Lyle and Cherylann Stewart and Phillip Neptin. Joe passed on Saturday, October 24, 2020, at the age of 36 from an aortic embolism.

Joe and Bayli Chapman, the proud parents of two beautiful girls Cora Rae (4) and Clara Elizabeth (2). Joe attended Southeast Warren through 8th grade and was a 2002 graduate from Iowa Valley High School in Marengo. He was a larger than life personality who would help anyone in need and was always the first to try and "fix" things. His smile could light up a room and his hugs were some of the best. Throughout his life Joe always made family the center of his world. Family extended far and wide in all walks of life. He knew no strangers. He was "Uncle Joe" to all the kids.

Joe was patriotic, and an accomplished horseman, mechanic, painter, power washer, and "Youtube" certified aficionado. His passions were music, technology, politics, storm tracking (chasing), cooking, coffee, fishing, guns, Tannerite and life in general. He was a movie buff and jokester.

He is survived by his parents, daughters Cora and Clara of Springville; siblings, Lauren Kay (Andrew) Coburn of Iowa City, Zachary (Harley) Stewart of Marengo and James Stewart (Miranda Dicus) of Blairstown and nieces and nephews, Avery and Liam Coburn, Elijah and Sibyl Stewart and many extended family and friends.

Visitation will be on Friday, October 30th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm, followed by a Celebration of Life Service on Saturday at 1:00 pm at the Powell Funeral Home in Williamsburg. SERVICE WILL BE LIVE STREAMED ON POWELL FUNERAL HOME FACEBOOK PAGE.

A memorial fund has been established for his daughters Cora and Clara. Messages and tributes may be left at

Joe’s quick wit and oneriness put a spark in my day. My deepest sympathy

Jessica Shifflett Stark on Oct 29, 2020

I have so many memories of Joe from growing up - horse shows, dinners at The Hardwater Inn (where little James always ordered Prime Rib, haha!), New Year's Eves... I have good memories, funny memories, embarrassing memories, but the thing about Joe is that I don't have any bad memories! It's like that grin of his lightened every situation and could cover a multitude of sins, so even the times that should have been bad times were made better just by Joe being Joe. He was so fun-loving and easy to relax around and had the BEST sense of humor. And oh my GOODNESS did he love his family something fierce. Love you guys.

Danielle Costello on Oct 28, 2020

Sending my prayers to your family during this difficult time. You always lit up a room, I have so many great memories with you and over 17 years of friendship. You will be missed my friend. Forever in our hearts Joe.
