Grandpa Joe had a great sense of pride for his kids and grandkids, his eyes would light up

every time he saw them. They truly are his greatest joy and legacy.

Grandpa Joe had a great love for the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, hiking, fishing and

camping. He also enjoyed having many great animals on the farm. He had an extreme soft

spot and love for animals which is why he always had a cat or dog at his side as a loyal


Opa, Joe’s mountain man name, loved being with friends with his same passion for


During his lifetime, Joe served his country for a short time, and was handy at many things, but

drywall was his specialty.

We would like to thank our family and friends, especially Shane White, for all their help and

friendship for Grandpa Joe. 

The family will have a private memorial service during the summer, Joe’s favorite time of year.
