Joseph was born and spent his life in Hingham, graduating from HHS in 1971.

Joseph worked as a landscaper, but his love was always music and he played the drums. At an early age, he transformed the family barn to a music venue where he would practice and perform with the bands he played in. He eventually played gigs at local venues in Hingham. He loved a variety of music from Jazz and the Blues to more contemporary.

Joseph also loved art and creating wonderful pictures and cards for his family and friends.

Joseph could always be spotted throughout town on his beloved bicycle. In any type of weather, you would see Joe riding around town and smiling and waving to friends and family.
