Joe married Della Dykeman on September 27, 1975 in Armstrong, BC.

Joe farmed on the family farm all his life. Joe loved the farm, farming and farmed right up until his passing. Through the years Joe had various animals on the farm, most notable; pigs, sheep, cattle and chickens. Joe enjoyed having dogs and cats as well. Joe always had a project on the go in his shop; restoring an old tractor or grain truck, inventing and building from materials around the farm and creating swings, playhouses and ziplines for his Grandchildren.

Joe taught 4-H welding to two generations, was a Beavers Club leader and always enjoyed lending a hand to community projects. Joe loved attending auction sales and visiting with friends and neighbors, yearly camping trips and Sunday road trips as well as traveling in the winter to warm locations.

Joe especially loved spending time with his family- taking his Grandchildren on wild side by side rides, skating on the dugout, tobogganing and watching various sports and activities. Joe was always happy to read to his Grandchildren using strange and wild voices to get them howling with laughter, liked challenging them to games that might cause arguments and was quick to tickle and tease them. 
 
Joe will be sadly missed and warmly remembered by all who knew him and had the pleasure of spending time with him.
