Joseph was loved by ALL. his comical humor, awesome personality, infectious laugh and positive energy surrounded him. Loved all genres of music. His favorite was being an “MC” to get the party started! He was definitely an Entertainer and enjoys seeing others having fun and bringing everyone together. He had a heart of gold, and always had compassion for others. He loved sharing his stories of being a Missionary in 1993-1995 at the Denver- North Mission. Especially how cool he was riding his bike. Joseph loved everyone, but more so his family. His love of 24 years to Lithe, son Suva was the highlight of his life. Joseph treated everyone like family. He was such a great teacher, he loved sharing his knowledge whether it be in the trucking Industry, life experiences, or his strong testimony of his faith. Joseph was one of a kind, who lit up the room with his awesome energy, who can make you laugh, a bear hug that comforts you, his testimony that encourages you and his love that brings family & friendships together. A gentle giant, an unforgettable spirit that had a way about him. A man of God, a Husband and father, a son a brother and uncle and a friend. You can still hear his laugh, just even the little things and places you’ve been brings wonderful memories of him. You will never be forgotten. We Love You “JOE” and as he would say, “It’s not a goodbye, but I’ll see you later”.
