Joseph began his career after graduating from St. John’s University as a sugar trader, then becoming a commodities broker, and ultimately a Wall Street Executive at several different firms. Joseph also served our nation in the United States Coast Guard for many years. In his retirement, he successfully ran a travel agency, before completely retiring and enjoying every moment life had to offer.
Joe was an avid fisherman, both in fresh and saltwater. He was an outdoorsman, traveler, a person who loved to “play” in the kitchen, a very active member in his church community, but most importantly, he was a family man. Everything Joe lived for was for his family. He never took life for granted, was the person that was always willing to lend a hand, or an ear, give advice, and help in any way he could. He was very strong, and fought very hard until his untimely passing. He was a loved and well respected man, husband, dad, grandfather, and friend, and will be missed sorely by all that knew and loved him.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, a Memorial Service will be held at his Church at a later date. Please check back for a service update.
