He was a hard-working man his whole life, becoming a long-time employee of Hardwick Knitted Fabrics until his retirement in 2007. Joe was a man of small stature but a huge presence in the lives of all that knew him. He was a dedicated father to his five children, and he especially enjoyed spending time with his family and holiday gatherings. His love for his family was unconditional, always present and always giving. He taught his children the value of hard work, what it means to be family, and to live life to the fullest and on your own terms. His favorite past time was coffee hour with his best friends, Tom and Gerry Ventura and Bob Gagnon.
