He went on to become an architectural designer. Joe took great pride in his skills and talent, as he worked at KB Design Group for over 30 years.
The simplest of life’s pleasures brought great joy to Joe. He loved an evening with friends, cold beer and good music around a bonfire or in the garage (Club Joe). He enjoyed pitching horseshoes and playing table tennis. He found his inner peace while working with plants, gardening and cooking. No one ever left Joe’s house hungry or thirsty. He loved to explore by taking long car rides or camping out in nature. He had an uncanny ability to find happiness in his daily activities. His pleasant personality was contagious to everyone he met.
Joe was an active 3rd Degree member in the Knights of Columbus Our Lady Queen of Peace Council in Pitman.
