Joe lived in Mt. Pleasant and previously lived in Pittsburgh, where he was born and raised. He attended South Hills Catholic High School (now Seton Lasalle), Duquesne University, Pittsburgh PA., Gannon University, Erie, PA.

He loved to talk to people and his gift was solidified with a kiss of the Blarney Stone.

Joe wanted to leave a message for all his friends and relatives. Afterglow,
"I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing ties and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave behind when life is done."

A memorial service will be planned. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc., Mount Pleasant Chapel
