He was quite a humorous character, he brought laughter to the people who surrounded him. He also, loved to be with his family that he cared for. Always,asking if they were doing well and if they were good. You can take a glance at him and se him happy with that loving smile. Friends new him as Papa Joe. He loved watching Western shows and listening to Dean Martin, his favorite and The Rat Pack. Oh yes, but most of all he looked forward to Friday nights. DANCE NIGHT! He would dance the night away.We will miss you but, most of all we have the memories of an amazing man.which of course you will never be forgotten. We love you!!
