Joseph was truly one of a kind. Whether you saw him sitting on his porch or walking his dog, Mia, in town he always had a smile on his face. He always knew how to make you laugh with his goofy sense of humor. Joseph had such a positive attitude, always making friends everywhere he went. He was a passionate baseball fan, a music enthusiast, and most importantly proud to be a father. His memories will live on with those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Joseph is survived by his loving children Taylor and Laurel and his nurturing sister Cathy.
