Joe served his country in the U.S. Army from August 1956 to August 1962, serving during the Korean Conflict. Everyone who knew Joe knew that he pretty well never rested. He was an active and involved member of the Salem American Legion Post #99; the Salem Eagle's Club and Sacred Heart Catholic Church Knights of Columbus. Anytime anyone needed help, he was there and he always gave 100% to everything he was involved in. He was very proud of his family, but he kept his emotions private. He will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew and loved him.
