Joe was a 1973 graduate of Bedford High School and was on the wrestling team. He worked for Standard Register and then spent the next 30 years at Kennametal where he was still employed. A big part of Joe’s life was being a member of the Chestnut Ridge Independent Fellowship Church. He was a member of the Church Choir and held several other roles in the church including Trustee, and he helped to maintain the facility. He enjoyed golfing, metal detecting, music, bowling and had bowled several 300 games. He loved his cats, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers, and following music. He was a big follower of the band Southern Raised. Most importantly Joe cherished the time he spent with his wife, son and the rest of his family.
