He attended School #43 in Rochester, later attending Edison Tech and eventually joined the Army working as a vehicle mechanic. As luck would have it, one day while he was enjoying the day at Charlotte Beach, he met his wife Chierina and later they were married in Holy Cross Church.

Joe was very mechanically inclined and loved working on tractors. He enjoyed country music and his favorite movie genres were military and westerns. As far as TV shows went, he enjoyed The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune and Jerry Springer. He was very close with all of his brother-in-laws, having breakfast with them every Saturday morning.

Joe was a quiet man, easy going, dedicated and a very hardworker. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
