Joe was self-employed as a flooring contractor for many years and also worked alongside his dad. He enjoyed fishing with his best friend Jamie and loved to bring Jason along as well. Joey and Jason called it their man time. He enjoyed playing the guitar and definitely loved playing Xbox! He and Steph grew a huge family with Herbalife and had a blast hanging out with all of them. Joey was an amazing cook and loved to make dinner for his family and usually took over the grill at every BBQ. He looked forward to movie nights with Ellsie & Jason and loved to make them laugh!
