He camped in the California wilderness with his wife and children for countless years, and he tended to Papa's Garden with his grandchildren for many more years. Joe's and Jeannette's enthusiam for nature thrives within their family. Not only has Joe's family lost their devoted patriarch, but the country has also lost a humble warrior.
