Joe worked at Balfour from 1981 to 1996 and then Herff Jones from 1996 until his retirement in 2011 designing class rings and sports championship rings. He spent many years making and selling wood toys and was a member of the Rockhill Crafts Co-op in Foxborough.

His is also survived by his loving grandchildren Jordan, Zachary, Kayley, Mae, Jack, Conor, Ella, and Emily. He was looking forward to the birth of his first great grandchild this summer. He also leaves behind extended family and friends who loved hearing his stories and hearing him laugh. Joe’s greatest joy was taking care of and spending time with his grandkids. He proudly attended as many of their games, meets, recitals, concerts, and plays as he could. He loved taking care of his yard and his two cats Betsy and Lucy. One of his favorite moments was the Red Sox 2004 World Series Championship, something he never thought he would experience. He loved taking Sunday rides with his wife with no destination that always ended in a fun adventure and a story to tell. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Joe’s name to St. Jude’s at www.stjude.org/donate.
