Joe loved gardening and sharing his abundance of fresh vegetables with everyone. He also loved to dance and would sweep the ladies right off their feet. He enjoyed going to the German American festival. He really enjoyed decorating for Christmas and adding a new item every year. You would often see Joe sitting on his front porch or just sitting outside watching everything. He had a knack for repurposing many things. Joe loved kids and enjoyed teaching them how to garden.
