  • Notes 
    • Owned and ran a butcher shop in Charlestown NSW.
      He was a great guy. Aunty Selena said he was the best boss she worked for. Always happy and had a great sense of humour.
      When he first started in business he used to ride his push bike to the abattoir at Waratah and carry back half a body of beef on the handle bars.
      Joe, at age 16, put his age up to join the army and went to France.
