Mr. St. Miklossy was born on February 16, 1935, in New York City, NY to the late Joseph and Alice St. Miklossy. He along with his wife Pat moved to Lake Winnsboro in 2000, coming from Plano.

He and his wife Pat were members of the First United Methodist Church in Winnsboro. Joseph when he was a bit younger enjoyed tennis and biking with his wife Pat. When she would win against him in tennis, Joseph like to say I let you win by playing left handed. The thing about that was Joseph was left handed. He gave up tennis and biking as he grew older and picked up the golf clubs instead. Everyone would tell you that Joseph had a wonderful sense of humor and he will be deeply missed.
