Joe proudly served in the US Army. He retired after many years of service from DuPont Paint in Philadelphia. Born in Philadelphia, he found a home in Franklinville, New Jersey with his wife Peg. Together they loved to tend to their property and garden. Joe was a man who liked the simple things in life. He especially enjoyed caring for his lawn on his ride-on mower. When not outside, Joe could often be found in his garage fixing all manner of things. He was his family's "Mr. Fix It" and could fix just about anything. He also enjoyed listening to country music. Joe had a great sense of humor, an infectious laugh and fierce love for his family.
