He was born on a farm in Varos, Croatia, immigrated to Nice, France where he met and married his wife and immigrated again to East Chicago, Indiana. He worked for General American, Pullman Standard, and retired from Amoco/BP as an electrician and pipefitter. He started his own business, JT Electric, where he rehabbed and built homes. He was a long-time member of St. Thomas More parish.
Joe was a man of principle and faith. His strong work ethic was matched by a generous heart. His joys were his family, gardening, pet dogs, and working hard. Half of his meals would go to any dog around the table especially his beloved Josie and Lucky and Sharko in Croatia. His home was always open to family and friends who treasured happy memories of his lamb roasts, homemade smoked sausages, home distilled brandies and hospitality.
