Joe and his wife had a very special little man in his life. Joe's great-grandson, Evan Ward was considered more like a son to him. Joe took Evan under his wing and taught him a lot. For the past year as his health was failing Evan stuck by his great-grandfather and never left his side day or night; even sleeping beside him on the couch so if he needed anything Evan was there to help him so his Papal would never be alone.
