He later that year, along with his parents, moved to Conway, Arkansas. Joe worked for a few temp agencies before becoming a full-time caregiver for his mother and father until they passed away in 1986 and 1997. Shortly after, Joe moved to Russellville, Arkansas and began working at Tyson for a number of years until becoming disabled.
