His family moved to Brownwood in 1941. He married Nelda Jane Bodine of Bangs on March 17, 1955. Joe retired from Texas Power & Light Company after 37 years of service. After his retirement, Joe enjoyed spending time traveling to Colorado and camping in his RV with Nelda, his brothers and their wives as well as camping trips with the rest of his family and grandchildren. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, watching sports, playing dominoes, cards, traveling and talking/meeting new people everywhere he went. Joe was a member of Coggin Avenue Baptist Church and the Adult I Sunday School class (Visionaries).
