Joseph John Kulesza, 84, of Las Vegas, Nevada passed away on March 19, 2021. Joe was a happy-go-lucky guy who had no fear. He grew up in Connecticut where he met his wife, Dottie. Once the opportunity presented itself to go west, he rolled the dice, transferred with IBM and moved his family to Las Vegas in 1968. Eventually, Joe got a job as a dealer at The Plaza which is when he fell in love with the casino industry. He spent 30 years working his way up as a floorman, pit boss and ultimately the vice president of casino operations for the Flamingo Hilton in Reno, Nevada. Joe was a husband to Dottie, father of six children, Kathi, Susan (Kevin), Jay (Shelly), John, Teresa (Elliott) and Krista (Joey). He was a grandfather of Jason, JJ, Ana, Mackenzie, Abigail and Mariah. Joe was very proud of his Polish roots. He always brought his family heritage into gatherings by cooking traditional cultural foods. Our friend, spouse, father and grandpa will be missed. Rest in peace. No services scheduled.
