He was very social, with a great sense of humor and truly enjoyed teasing others. His sharing spirit was enjoyed by many, through puzzles and pictures. He had a lifelong passion for woodworking, with his specialty being birdhouses, tool boxes and napkin holders. Joe gardened from an early age and shared his harvest with others. He continued his food sharing by working at a local food cupboard.
To continue feeding others any donations in Joe’s memory may be sent to The Food Cupboard in care of Belfast United Methodist Church, 23 Mill Lane, Belfast, Maine, 04915. Joe will be fondly remembered by his extended family of friends; especially those at Belfast Industries and the Belfast United Methodist Church.
