Joe worked for many years for Artistic Lighting Studios (later Metals Manufacturing Co.) and there are many examples of his skill and artistry all over the country. After retirement, Joe joined his son-in-law at Karl Winter Co., and worked for another 17 years, retiring 3 years ago to care for his wife. His care and concern for her was truly unselfish and unlimited.He served his country during World War II, enlisting when his age would have granted a deferment. He was stationed in Europe with the 971st Engineer Maintenance Company.
Joe shared what he had generously and willingly with others. If someone needed anything and if Joe had it or could get it, they did not need for long. He never met a stranger-just a friend he didn't know yet. Everybody loved Joe.
