Joe attended Warren G. Harding High School and served in the U.S. Air Force. He worked in skilled trades at General Motors in Lordstown, retiring in 1999 after 28 years of employment. He enjoyed fishing, gambling, dancing, snow skiing, and most of all, spending time with his family.

Preceding him in death are his parents; four brothers; and nine sisters.
Per his request, cremation is taking place. His family will have a Celebration of Life service at a later date.
