Joe spent much of his childhood at the rink and on the pond, ice-skating, a pastime that bled into a lifelong passion.  He played iced hockey throughout the years and was a fan of all levels of the sport, rooting exclusively for the NY Rangers in the NHL.  Joe also played lacrosse.  He was a fan of college football and cheered on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.  Joe enjoyed cooking, especially Italian food.  He was an avid reader and loved listening to Big Band music and watching Westerns, especially the films of John Wayne.  Joe treasured the memories he had of his Friday night poker games with his buddies and his trips abroad to Ireland and Canada.

He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend and an overall good man.  Joe will be missed greatly.
