Their first Sun City home had a large front porch where Joe enjoyed spending time with a group of neighbor men solving the problems of the world and drinking coffee. But most of all Joe loved spending time with his Bride of almost 75 years, Pauline, and his family. Their home was always open to family & friends. Joe was a wonderful man. Loving and kind, quick to smile and a gentleman to all.
