Joe served in the Navy during peacetime and was a loyal Bears, Cubs, and Notre Dame fan.
He had the best sense of humor and loved telling jokes, lovingly nicknamed "Joker Joe." Joe was an avid golfer and loved to fish and play euchre. He was a faithful member and Lector of St. Pius where he guided new couples through pre cana classes, and was a weekly volunteer at St. Vincent De Paul.
