He leaves behind 9 grandchildren, Jordan, Emily, Sarah, Morley Kert, Amy, Rachael, and Adam Garside, Kess and Brooke Partridge, his sister Michele of New York, NY, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
A brilliant and talented Mechanical and Electrical Engineer, Joe worked for several technology firms before becoming self-employed.

Joe will be remembered by those who knew him as a big soft-spoken man, with a love of the outdoors, gardening and his family.
