Affectionately regarded as "Joe Man", Joe voluntarily enlisted in the United States Air Force Reserve and proudly served his country until he received an Honorable Discharge. He later became an entrepreneur and worked as a welder until his health declined.
He enjoyed fishing and racing cars on dirt tracks. Joe was known for his loving, resourceful, determined, and strong nature. Joe attended North Lake Baptist Church under the leadership of Dr. John D. Carl in Garland, Texas, and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
