Joe graduated from Los Alamos High school where he played basketball, and still 38 years later he talked about how he played on the team that beat Albuquerque High and went on to state.

Joe's most fulfilling jobs were where he was affecting children's lives by teaching, helping and guiding them in many different avenues of education.
Joe was so full of life and humor, he loved music, people, places and things but what he cherished most was his two sons, Patrick and Anthony.
