McAulay and Wallace Mortuary - Yorba Linda - Yorba Linda Obituary

He leaves behind his wife, Betty, and two children, Donna (66) and Matthew (59), both developmentally disabled. He was a very active advocate for them and all disabled people.

He served in the Army Air Force during WWII flying over France and Germany. On his 50th mission, he was shot down and was a POW until Patton’s army liberated him at the end of the war.

Joe claimed his longevity was due to his daily Rx of scotch. He enjoyed playing golf and is well known on the golf course with his “back-assward” putter which is laid to rest with him.

He died peacefully on May 30, 2019. May he Rest In Peace
