Our family was blessed to have a father, grandfather, and great grandfather that was there for us through the good and the not-so-good moments in our lives. He taught us the value of hard work.
Joe served in WWII, and two tours of Korea. He served his community as a Lieutenant for the Albuquerque Fire Department for 33 years.
Our hearts may be filled with sorrow, but we know he is with our Lord and Savior, dancing on the streets of gold, with his loving wife, Josephine. Joe and Josephine loved to dance and were admired by all that watched them boogie on the dance floor.
