Joseph lived an interesting life; he was very adventurous and full of excitement and ideas. He was a positive thinker and believed that he could conquer the world if he put his mind to it. He was an honest and respectful man, and his word was his bond. After graduating high school, Joseph joined the military where he served from 1972 to 1981. During his tenure, Joseph received numerous Certificates of Achievements for his role in command operations. Joseph was a proud son, brother, and soldier, he served us all well without regrets for the role he played in our lives. Joseph had a way of making us all laugh, and we will miss him, but we know that his Spirit is with God.
