Tom -- I knew Joe very well. He went to work for CNAC about the same time that I did, and stayed till the end, as I did. After he came home at the end of 1949 or early 1950, he was involved in a car accident and lost both legs, so spent the rest of his life in a wheel chair. Joe's wife Edelyn (see document for correct spelling of Edlyne's name and Joe's middle initial "J") was killed in this accident (1924-1953). I don't know when he (Joe) died, but it was, I think, in the late 60's or early 70's. Wally Hash visited him, at least once, and could give you much more information about Joe. Sorry that I don't have more info.

Here's a couple of thoughts from Wally Hash. Wally's pretty sure that Joe's given name was "Joseph P." and Wally says that he remembers that Joe had a daughter in the US Air Force. When Wally visited Joe in the 1950's or 1960's he said that Joe was driving and lived near Indiana, Pennsylvania.
