Joe has had the love of the land in his heart, after working in a factory to purchase his first farm, he has been a farmer all his life. He was ready and waiting every spring to start the planting and, in the fall anxious to start the combines to get going to harvest his crops.
He was an avid trapper and hunter and very successful at that!
At Joe’s request, he is being cremated, and there will be no public service. Joe was a very private man.
He will be sadly missed by family and friends!
