Upon his return home Joe went to work for the U.S. Postal Service, while working his way thru The University of Tulsa and earning his CPA. While at TU, Joe met and soon married Gloria Jean Craig. Joe and Gloria would make their home in Sapulpa, OK, where they lived for 50 years. After graduation Joe went to work for the Internal Revenue Service, where he would make many lifelong friendships. Joe retired from the Internal Revenue Service in August 1990. Joe was a very kind and loving father, grandfather, and loyal friend. He had an adventurous spirit and a truly generous heart. His zest for living and willingness to try new things made adventures a surprise and a joy. Joe is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Keith and Tammy Winn and grandson, Erick Winn all of Tulsa.
