Joe (he was “Dad” to me) was an enlisted man and served in World War II and The Korean War. He didn’t talk much about his “Soldier” life -only when I was older did he speak to me about being in Japan after the nuclear bombing and his horror at what he saw there. On the lighter side, he wouldn’t let Mom buy Spam – but he loved chipped beef on toast! Go figure!

He died on July 9, 2000 of ALS. I wish he was still here – we could talk of life and just sit quietly together.

    I was his wife. He was a wonderful and caring man.
    We had almost 50 years together.

    He loved life and education was very important to him. Many hours were spent with children in hopes
    he could make a difference in their lives. He did.

    Joe was my Dad. He was a wonderful man who encouraged me and anyone else whose life he touched, to be and do your best. He valued life and did what he could do to make this world a better place. I loved him and miss him very much.
