He enjoyed sharing his stories with his family and friends of the “Big Hunt” or the “Big Fish”. He shared with his family his wisdom and gave us the encouragement to appreciate the finer things life has to offer, and Joe’s finer thing was his “Flower Face”, his wife Hilda. A special thank you to Dr Allan Toguri for his care, his friendship, and support to our family.
