Joe proudly worked as a Postal Carrier for over 30 years, where he made many friends that he still recently talked about. In his younger days, he enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially fishing on the Arkansas River. His labor of love was doing a lot of stone and concrete work at the home he lived in for over 53 years. Joseph had many stories to tell over the years and that will always be such a treasure for us to keep alive with his grands and great grandkids. He often said many times that he had a good life and had a wonderful family. He was never shy about telling anyone how proud he was of us and that he had a great family he had. We will be forever grateful to having him celebrate with his family this year for Thanksgiving.
