He took over the family farm with his mom when he was 9 years old (third grade) because his father was sick. He saddled up and plowed acres of land by hand with work horses until they got the John Deer when he was 21. He made the impossible happen. Had a strong work ethic. He was a roofer and endured great hardships to earn a living for his family.

Hazel used to call Joe her ‘Nature Boy’. They both were very connected to the great outdoors, birds and flowers. He used to tend to huge gardens by hand and would give bushels of veggies away, he was well known for his asparagus deliveries. Feeding the whole town. He would give you the shirt off his back and will never be forgotten. Now he will be free of pain able to move and will be birdwatching up there with Hazel up in heaven.

He had many sweet kind people in his later years who would do anything for him and continued to be our Earth Angels. His devoted sweet caregivers, many kind, dedicated, helpful neighbors, and dedicated close friends who spent a lot of time and energy keepin him goin, at the age of 92.
