In his spare time, Joe enjoyed taking long walks and gardening with his wife. He liked tinkering with things, and could fix almost anything. Joe loved traveling to visit his daughter and son-in-law in London, taking trips to Portugal where he'd help organize large family reunions, and helping his son win at cornhole during Sunday Fundays. Joe wore a constant smile, and was well-known for his silly jokes and boisterous laugh, all of which will be missed by many.
Joe is survived by his beloved wife Saudade and sister Maria of Moleanos, Portugal. He was a loving father to his son David and wife Stacey of Agawam, and his daughter Elizabeth and husband James of London, UK. Joe was a very proud Vô to his granddaughter Jocelyn, and never missed any of her activities or theater performances. Joe was predeceased by his brothers Manuel and Joao of Portugal. He also leaves a large and loving extended family and many lifelong friends in the United States and Portugal.
