He grew up in Spring Green, attending Saint John's Elementary School and was a proud member of the final class graduating from Spring Green High School in 1962.
When he was eight years old, he contracted polio but he never let that deter him from participating in physical activities, such as marching band and athletics. Later, Joseph attended classes in the accounting program at MATC. In 1966, he married Susan Mary Vaughan in Madison.

He was a past member of the Administrative Management Society. In 1984 he began working for Edward Kraemer and Sons in the Aggregate Division. He moved his family to Plain shortly thereafter. Plain proved to be the ideal community for raising his family. He was a member of Saint Luke's Congregation and served on the Saint Luke's Education Commission as well as serving on the board of the Friends of the Kraemer Library and Community Center.
In 1996, The Kraemer Company team honored him by selecting him as Accounts Receivable Supervisor. He valued his employment and his co-workers became his friends. The family wishes to extend thanks to the Kraemer Company for its continued support throughout his illness.
The family would like to acknowledge Dr. Sam Lubner and Dr. Clifford Cho as well as their respective teams from the UW Comprehensive Cancer Center. Gratitude is also extended to the Don and Marilyn Anderson HospiceCare Center.
