Joe was an avid boater who loved spending time with his family on the Connecticut River, Long Island Sound, Pierce Lake and the Inter-Coastal waters of Florida. His love of the ocean was passed on to his children and grandchildren. Our dad was a devoted husband, a supportive father and caring friend to many. He will forever watch over us all now, without worry or pain, just love.
