Joseph was a rock to many and you could call upon him for anything and he would be there. He helped many people and he had a wish of opening a homeless shelter. Joseph took many children under his wing and cared for them as his own. He also loved going places, fishing, working with his boys and family.
He had a heart of gold and we can only imagine how he will light up the Gates of Heaven with his smile. Goodbye for now Big Joe, until we all meet again in Heaven.
“Goodbye Pops, I will love and miss you forever until I see you again.”
Love your son,
