He passed away in a tragic traffic accident March 13th, 2014 in Stigler, OK. \r\r\n \r\r\n After graduating from Union City High School, Joe earned his associate degree and served in the Army National Guard. He pursued his career in the natural gas compressor industry and became a specialist in his field. His abilities and experience in the oil and gas industry enabled him to launch Contract Service Corporation in 1983. He and his wife Patsy moved from Ft Cobb in 1986 to Stigler, Ok in 1988 where they successfully served such clients as Texaco, Exxon and Conoco. Joe retired in 2003.\r\r\n \r\r\nHaving grown up on the farm, Joe was an antique tractor enthusiast. He collected numerous antique tractors, restored many and was known among fellow collectors and locals as the 'tractor man.' One of his favorite pastimes was to create miniature tractor replicas from variety materials. He created his own, yard-size steam engine tractor that runs like the big ones. His tractor style mail boxes and bird houses were featured in magazines and various publications.\r\r\n \r\r\nJoe loved people, cherished his family and always had something fun to say. His infectious smile was contagious and brightened many hearts. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed experiencing nature, off-road adventures, boating, jeeping and motorcycle rides. \r\r\n \r\r\nJoe was preceded in death by his parents Mary and Joe Kolar and by his sister, Nancy Novotny. \r\r\n\r\r\nHe is survived by his wife, Patsy Kolar and four children: his son Bryan Kolar and wife Sheryle of Mustang; his son Kevin Kolar of Yukon; Ray Sanders and wife Stephanie of Oklahoma City; Tommy Sanders and wife Laura of Owasso; and nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
