He was a post commander of the American Legion in Rockwell and was a member of the DAV and VFW.

Joe's will to live and unmatched spirit will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Robin, and his four children, Bob, Sascha, Dell and Sonja; his three sisters, Jean, June and Wanda; as well as his eight grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
