He also had a walking companion, Gabby, who he walked with almost every day until he couldn't. Joe loved being very active, from cross country skiing, to racquetball and volleyball. Volleyball was his favorite which he played for almost 30 years .He made the dullest of times fun with his sense of humor and could bring a smile to everyone's face. Joe served his country during the Vietnam era in the US Army. Joe spent 30 years working for IBM as a computer programmer. After retiring he worked in his garage restoring old cars and some not so old, almost to the end. As much as he loved working in his garage, he loved his family more. No matter how busy he was everything would be dropped if his family needed him. A funeral service will be held 12:00pm Friday at Nichols Funeral Home. Burial will be in Glen Castle Cemetery.
