Joe was known for his quiet, quick wit and sense of humor. An avid car enthusiast, he spent his early years as a mechanic before finding his calling caring for the sick and injured as a nurse’s aide. While not a sports fan himself, he enjoyed volunteering to better youth athletics and watched his children compete well into college. He was a Little League baseball coach, former president of the McDonald Midgets Football Association and the McDonald Sideliners Association. During the summer he enjoyed working in the yard and tending the garden. When winter came, he enjoyed a warm blanket and checking his eye lids for crack. When he was not building model cars, Joe also enjoyed losing in cards, traveling with his dance partner Carol, and the occasional Sunday drive. His winter white beard, huge heart, and warm smile will be missed by many. Your loving family is glad that you are at peace and united with loved ones and Jesus.
