Joe attended Menasha High School where he excelled at both basketball and baseball. Upon leaving high school, he began a career at Neenah Papers that lasted nearly forty years. As a young man, he met the love of his life, Patricia Syring, whom he married in February of 1955. Their marriage was blessed by two children. Pat preceded Joe in death in March of 2016. Joe loved hunting and fishing and watching his beloved Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears with Pat and the family.

He is further survived by many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. In addition to his parents and his wife Pat, Joe was preceded in death by a grandson Jon Kosiorek, two brothers, and several sisters and brothers-in-law.
