Joe has resided in Daytona Beach for 27 years. For 20 of those years he worked as the chef at Daytona Diner. Joe loved to fish and spend time with his family. Joe was a man of few words but his presence spoke volumes. To the customers of Daytona Diner, Joe may not have known your name but he knew your order and exactly how you wanted your food prepared…he had that gift. He will be sadly missed by of all his friends in and out of the diner. There will be a private gathering in the near future. The family would appreciate donations for funeral expenses in lieu of flowers.
