Joe was a sailor who followed his heart. He was known for his thoughtfulness in remembering special occasions, in being a snazzy dresser with matching accoutrements, and for his deep faith. He will be sadly missed by his daughters Andrea (Lois), Jo-Ann (Anne), his wife Dorothy and his grandchildren Nicole (James), Tejas and Pratim. He will also be missed by a world-wide circle of family and friends. He was predeceased by his eldest daughter Marilyn.
