Joe was a man of few words and when he talks, he speaks from the heart. He never wanted to bother other people.

He was an engineer and he loves tinkering and repairing broken appliances on his own. He was always up-to-date with the local and international news especially with the Philippines news which he accessed from his computer. He loved to watch boxing despite being reruns and old matches.

He was a devoted and loving grandfather. He is very much loved and will be missed terribly.

Joe wished for a direct cremation which is honored and respected. A celebration of life will be held on a later date. This will include a Catholic Mass at Church of the Incarnation.
