He grew up in Solsberry, IN, and Sandborn, IN. Joe graduated from Pleasantville High School, where he was on the basketball team and was in some of the school plays, just to make his favorite teacher happy. Being the last one living at home with his mother, Joe took care of her. Joe joined the U.S. Army in 1962, and fought in the Bay of Pigs Invasion. Upon his honorable discharge, he worked at various places while he continued to look after his mother and supported her. He fell in love with Peggy Williams, and married her November 5, 1966. Although they didn’t have children of their own, he loved kids and they all loved him. Even in his latter years, he treated some as his own. Joe retired from Roth Meats Packing House in Indianapolis. He lost the love of his life March 14, 2011, after 44 years of marriage. Visitation will be Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 12 noon until the time of service at 2:00 p.m. at Shirley Brothers Washington Memorial Chapel, 9606 East Washington Street.
