Wiki or Joe as he was known to many had a kind, caring and compassionate heart toward others. He usually spent his time helping people, working on cars when he was able to and going fishing. Growing up he had many wild animals as pets. He loved to watch westerns, war films, listening to country or gospel music and sitting on the porch. He also loved cars, especially the classics. He could tell you the year, make and model of many cars. Seeing how fast a car can go was something he was very good at. He was an avid knife and coin collector. Sometimes he would give these away as gifts. He could tinker and rebuild things that consist of wiring and motors. Pepsi, strawberry ice cream, brown beans, fry bread and his mom's cooking were his favorites to enjoy. His family meant the world to him. He spent as much time as he could visiting and checking on them. Friends and family will always remember the joy, laughter and teasing that he brought into their lives.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
