He loved making new friends, singing, playing the guitar, and socializing with everyone. Joe was a good friend to all and touched many hearts. He could make people laugh with his playful sense of humor. Joe loved to travel the open roads and knew every road from memory. If you had the chance to sit and talk with him, you were guaranteed to hear some great stories that only he could tell.

Joe was an honorable and humble man who lived a full and rewarding life. He was known to be very giving and kind, and always gave of himself while asking nothing in return. Joe was a hard-working and supportive man who set an example for his family to follow. He was completely devoted to his family and made sure they remained together and happy.
