Joe graduated from Stanford ('83) and University of Wisconsin Veterinary School ('97). With a love for all creatures great and small, Dr. Joe comforted animals in California and Hawai`i. He helped found the Windward Community College Veterinary Technician Program, worked with the Honu Conservation program at Sea Life Park, and served on the Hawai`i Veterinary Medical Association Board.
Since June 4, 1961, all the years combine, they melt into a dream. Joe sought adventure everywhere, with everyone, and always strove to do it all. He loved traveling the world, hiking, diving, singing, playing music, cycling, and being a SF Giants fan.
