Away from the office, Dr. Joe's biggest enthusiasm is the time he spends with William and Grace, his two children and his wife, Christy, a Corporate Business Consultant with Wells Fargo Bank. They are pretty busy; any spare time is spent outdoors golfing, on the lakes boating and fishing, plus hunting, and spectating almost all sports.
