During his retirement years, Joe traveled the world while enjoying forty cruises. He also sought to give back by volunteering his services to veterans including driving them to medical appointments; to long-haul truckers as a Spiritual Chaplain for the Truck Stop Ministry as well as supporting the preservation of manatees with his involvement with the National Fish and Wildlife Refuge in Crystal River.
As a member of the Southeast Clown Association and World Clown Association, Joe enjoyed gifting laughter to the young and old as Joe Bingo the Clown. He also enjoyed making balloon creations and sharing a joke or two that would leave others laughing.
Joe’s loving heart and caring spirit will be sorely missed by those who love him.
