Joe graduated from Mariana High School and moved on to Florida State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Marine Biology.

What brought him joy in life was sharing his vast knowledge, from volunteering as a science presenter at a local schools, to teaching adult Sunday school classes, to tutoring his children and later, grandchildren. On his own time, he worked tirelessly in his extensive gardens, which held plenty of his carnivorous plants.
