Joe began his college career at UW-Whitewater earning his Bachelor's in Business and receiving the Wall Street Journal Award for Business at Colorado State University. He then earned his Master's degree at the Air Force Institute of Technology. Joe retired from a successful career in the USAF. He then started his own company, AMCI in Alexandria, VA, where he developed, wrote and presented training programs for the Department of Energy and Department of Defense. After a successful second career, he sold his company but was retained as a development and management consultant. He began yet another career as the Parish Center Manager for Church of the Incarnation. He officially retired in 2015 after making a positive and lasting contribution to the parish's many programs and activities.

He was a die-hard fan of the Green Bay Packers and was affectionately recognized by his signature jacket and car window flags flying proudly on his gold Ford truck. Joe was also an avid fan of the Wisconsin Badgers, Notre Dame and the Cincinnati Reds. He enjoyed walking daily at Trent Arena and spending time with family and friends. Joe was a very generous, kind, loving role model and mentor to so many and will be dearly missed by all that knew him. Joe has truly left this world a better place by his presence in it.
