"To know Joe is to walk on the sunny side of the street" is a beautiful quote from a friend that very much captures Joe's persona.

Joe's wife, Evelyn, of 32 years, stated, "He never came down in the morning without a smile on his face".

Evelyn and Joe met at a high school graduation party. When Evelyn was asked if it was love at first sight, she responded, "For me it was; he was drop-dead gorgeous".

Together Joe and Evelyn made a beautiful couple. After dating for five years throughout college, they married afterwards in 1969, and were blessed with three beautiful children: Joseph, Todd, and Kimberly.

Joe was even more beautiful on the inside than on the outside. He was very down-to-earth and kind to everyone he met. The many, many tributes and kind messages written about Joe after he died are a true testament to a life well-lived and a man well-loved.

Evelyn said that she and Joe loved each other more and more as time went on. They were so in love with each other and told each other all the time.

As successful as Joe was in his career, he was home for dinner, coached his children's sports teams, and spoke to Evelyn 3-4 times a day. "He always took the phone call", Evelyn stated while discussing how Joe always took time out of his busy schedule for his family.
