He then spent a period of time in Florida before his death. Joseph was a member of Calvary Assembly of God since being saved on Father’s day of 1967. He centered his life around his family, the Lord and church fellowship.
Joseph attended Collinwood high school and proudly served his country. After 70 years, he was finally awarded his Purple Heart that he earned while fighting in the Korean Conflict. He began his career at General Electric in 1956 until he retired in 1988. In his free time he enjoyed home projects, going to the YMCA and listening to old fashion Christian music.
