Joe is lovingly remembered for his loyalty to family, quick wit and good-natured personality. A member of the Sheet Metal Workers Local 17 for over 40 years, Joe's strong work ethic was matched by his lifelong pursuit of having a good time. Joe lived in South Florida for many years and shared his love of fishing, the beach and cold beer with the many friends he made along the way.
