Joe worked for Amoco for 41 years and volunteered his time with Junior Achievement, OLG ushers, Amoco Retirees, and sat on the board of directors for Whiting Refinery Credit Union. He was a renown “putzer”, if anything broke he’d take it apart, make modifications, and put it back together. Joe and Tookie read a Time-Life book, “How To Build A House”; in 1957 Joe built their home on weekends and after work on weekdays.
“Mercy Me”; he was a man loved by many, particularly, Kim, his caregiver for the last 4 years.
