An El Dorado Hills Resident since 1984, Joe loved his family and friends. He was involved in his children's sports and community. After 30 plus years, Joe retired from the Postal Service in 2001. In retirement, he never stopped working. He put everyone before himself and was well known for his friendly conversation. Joe's smile, generosity, genuine spirit...and mustache! will be missed, but always remembered. He was a loving husband, father, grandpa, coach, but most of all, friend to all. He is survived by his wife Kelley; sons, John and Jeff; daughter, Koleen (Lucio); and his grandson, Cristiano Joshua Lucio. "We love you."
A service was held at Green Valley Cemetery in Cameron Park, California July 2, 2013. Joe was laid to rest next to his son, Joshua.
