Joe graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1971 and WVU.
He was a true lover of WV and the outdoors. His interest in the outdoors, hunting and fishing led him to his future jobs where he met Theresa. He made it to the woods for the first day of deer season, just days before he passed. He and Theresa enjoyed exploring West Virginia trails and floating and fishing the Greenbrier River.
