Timothy Roberto "Chub" Joustra, 58, of Hurley, passed away Friday, October 18th, 2019, surrounded by his loving family at the University of Minnesota Fairview Medical Center of Minneapolis.       Tim was born December 27th, 1960 in Burlington, Wisconsin, son of Henry "Hank" and Bonita "Bonnie" (Steiner) Joustra. He graduated from Mercer High School with the class of 1979.       He met and married Antoinette "Tonie" Hassberg in February 1984. Together they created four beautiful children. Although they later divorced, they remained friends.     He then met Sandra Antoinette Giancola in October of 2010. They married on November 11th, 2011. Combined, they had 11 children and 18 grandchildren (soon to be 19) that were an important part of his life. Family meant everything to Tim, and he spent as much time as he could with them. He took immense joy in attending his grandchildren’s sporting events. He would travel to Chippewa Falls and back to watch T-Ball games.     Tim and Sandy spent their free time traveling. They enjoyed going to Florida each winter, attending sporting events and going to rock concerts. They Were inseparable.      The couple owned "the #1 Hot Spot on Copper Street" - Chub & Sandy's - and their many customers and friends will miss Chub's dry sense of humor and direct wit.
