Joe was a 37-year-old Fire Department lieutenant at Ladder 101 in Red Hook‚ Brooklyn‚ NY. He was a devoted husband‚ father‚ son‚ brother and loyal and dedicated fireman. Joseph was a World War II history buff and loved reading biographies of generals from that period. His hobbies included his love of music and his dog ‘Lucy.’ He adored his wife Naoemi and daughters Amanda and Isabel. They were his great job in life. His senior officers have told us that Joe was an exceptional officer‚ always teaching and‚ above all‚ looking out for his men.
Joe had a style and grace that brightened our days‚ a laugh and smile that could win your heart. We miss him dearly.
