Returning home 4 years later, Joe met the love the of his life, Joan (Saccone). He re-enlisted in 1954 and he and Joan were married in 1956.

As they both loved to say, “we were dumb and dumber, heading down the road.” While serving, they were stationed all over the United States, including Guam, and raised their family for 22 years. Retiring in 1972, Joe and family returned to their native New Jersey and settled in Toms River. Joe once again served his country as a federal employee at Lakehurst NAS (now Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakeurst). Finally retiring in 1994, Joe and Joan traveled, bought a place in Key West and enjoyed their family making memories. Family was everything to Joe but he also loved the NY Giants, NY Yankees, reading, history, hunting, traveling and eating Joan’s cooking. He was a lifetime member of the Aviation Boatswain’s Mates Association (ABMA).
