Joe was a resident of Attleboro most of his life and was a graduate of Attleboro High School. He was
currently employed at EMS of Attleboro, CPS in Norton and previously at Texas Instruments where he
began to master his skills.
Joe enjoyed spending time with his loved ones and friends, playing Baggo, sitting around the fire-pit,
playing cards, horseshoes, darts or golfing are what made him happy, watching his beloved NY Jets was
also high on that list. His love of holidays and taking charge of all outdoor displays added to his charm
and gave him pride.
Joe loved animals especially his baby "Mazzy". He was a kind and caring man and always there to lend a
helping hand to anyone he thought could use one. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved
him from family to friends to co-workers. Joe will be remembered as a sweet man with a big heart and a
big smile that touched so many lives; a gentle man with a gentle soul.
