While living in Parsippany, he became a member of the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Council. It was late in his life that he decided to become a NJ lawyer and so he studied and passed the bar. Joe met his lifetime companion, Lois in 1978 and married her in 1983, taking on the responsibilities of raising her 2 young children. They spent ,many years traveling the globe, visiting all 7 continents and learning about dozens of cultures.

He was always the first on the dance floor and the last to leave. He routinely rooted for the underdog and was the eternal optimist, always looking for the goodness in people and never saying a negative thing about anyone.
