On July 6, 1974 he married his sweetheart, Kathy Lea Wright. She survives.
Joe worked as a machinist at Niagara Cutter in Reynoldsville for many years and just retired in 2016.
Following retirement, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, and boating. His love of fishing and boating inspired him and Kathy to move to Glendale Yearound to live. He was looking forward to using his new pontoon boat with his family and fishing buddies this summer.
He loved his family, and just thought the world of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He also loved his little doggies, Jack and Jill. Jill displayed her love and dedication to Joe when she stood watch over him right up until the end.
The music of the 50-60’s were Joe’s favorites, but Elvis Presley music topped the list of his preferences. He was a lifetime member of the NRA.
