We remember his love and talent for so many things including the great outdoors at his summer home with his family; he was a committed hunter and skilled fisherman; we will remember from a young age his talent for baseball and becoming a little league coach. Joe also was an expert craftsman; specializing in mechanical and auto body repair. When something needed to be fixed, Joe knew exactly what to do and asked nothing in return. Joe had a zest for life; loved outdoor activities with his family; and he lived life to the fullest. Joe graduated in 1985 from Roosevelt “Rough Riders” High School in East Chicago; attended Ivy Tech; and an HVAC graduate of ETI. Joe was manager of the Wicker Park golf course for many years; then went on to work many more years as a mechanic and auto body specialist. Joe meant the world to his family and he lit up their lives and hearts. Although now gone, he will never be forgotten; we shall remember the honest and loving man that was Joe.
