give his all, he was always well-groomed, even when cutting
grass! In addition, to the outdoors, Joe loved animals,
horses, dogs, cats, turtles, rabbits he housed them all. He
was a jack of all trades, just the overall handy man.

first class to integrate the facility in 1978. That year he met
Mary Alice Holston and they wed five years later. Joe and

love conquered all!

years and owned his own lawn service as he enjoyed
servicing his community.
