A true testament to Little Joe’s life of selflessness and positive influence is the smile and love that he received from everyone that he greeted with his signature …What’s Happenin’!?

He felt blessed to have great grandchildren, Kali Ann List and Tatum Stihl List.
Joe spent much of his time volunteering and sharing his philosophy with several organizations. He was actively involved with the Elks Lodge, the Dare and Municipal Alliance Programs, the Grenadiers and Lakeland Brass DrumCorps and lead by example as he counselled those battling with addiction as he lived one day at a time.
