On May 8, 1970, Joel and Marie were married, raised four children, and celebrated 52 beautiful years together. Joel was a truck driver by trade and was in the industry until his retirement in 2017.
In his spare time Joel enjoyed spending time fishing with his sons and grandchildren as well as cheering on his favorite Philadelphia sports teams.
