He was the fifth born of this union. He attended Portsmouth Public Schools before deciding to enlist in the United States Army. Joseph was a talented, enthusiastic, independent, and a hard
working young man. He had the gift of cooking, singing, and loved to paint. When he spoke of his work he would say ''I'm the best", that was Joe.

During his years of employment, Joseph cooked at Morrison's Cafeteria, Picadilly, and Country Favorites Restaurant. Joseph always kept a nice warm smile on his face. He touched many people's lives with his encouraging smile, kind words, and the willingness to help in anyway that he could. Joseph gave his life to a young age. He was a former member of Centennial Baptist Church in Portsmouth, YA.  He was in the choir and a member of the Centennial Caravans.
