Joseph was born September 17, 1963. He grew up in Euclid and has been a resident of Avon Lake for the last 14 years. Joe was a proud graduate of St. Ignatius High School. He went on to graduate from John Carroll University where he played hard with his JCU football team, kicking the longest field goal ever, 52 yards! This record remains after 34 years. He was a member of St. Raphael Catholic Church in Bay Village and previously St. William Catholic Church in Euclid. Joe was a Corporate Accountant at Park Corporation, celebrating 25 years of service August 9, 2018. His work brought him joy. Joe’s most enjoyment in life was spending time with his wife Kelly, their faithful companions Jack, Louie and the late Sammy, along with his family and friends. His strong faith was an inspiration to all. Joe was passionate about golf and looked forward to each and every opportunity to play the game. He enjoyed bowling, roller coasters, and sports in general. The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Redskins were at the top of his list. June was Joe’s favorite month of year and summer his favorite season. Vacationing was something he always looked forward to as well as the holidays. Joe was a beautiful life. A life filled with faith, grace, patience, love and kindness. He will truly be missed by all.
