After spending over 7 years in the military, Joe got out after the Gulf War 1991 and moved his family back to his hometown in Montana. He worked at an Independent repair shop before deciding to move to Oregon. Once in Oregon he worked for a Chrysler and Mitsubishi dealership; after 7 years he went to work for Mercedes Benz. When the opportunity came up to get back into the Independent repair business, he jumped at the chance to get back to what he loved, working for a local small business.
Joe has three kids who graduated from North Eugene High School and now has many grandchildren that he adores.
He and his wife enjoy gardening and working on their house together. Both also enjoy getting out and traveling Oregon to see what they can find new and exciting to do also traveling the country to visit the kids and grandkids.
