Joe and his brother, Fred, owned and operated a dairy farm and trucking business for many years. He and Freda enjoyed good times at dances with many cherished friends.

His door was always open to many friends and his quick wit will be missed by all. Joe will be remembered as a loving father and grandfather, as well as a person of high character in the community. He was someone to always be counted on.
