Joe spent much of his adult life residing in Millis with his wife Catherine. He was very active in the town serving on the finance committee, the board of selectmen and as a little league manager. He was an avid reader, world traveler, sports enthusiast and known by many as “the man with the most toys.”

Many fond memories of Joe and Cathy during the years when we lived in Millis (1965-1997). I particularly remember Joe during the time that he managed a Little League team while I managed the As. He was a good friend.
May God welcome him to a reunion with Cathy in Heaven and give comfort to his wonderful family.
