In his spare time, he enjoyed playing the guitar, singing, fishing, boating, and hunting. He was also a great soccer player and went on to coach 2 of his kid’s teams.

To know London Lou is to know how much of a story teller he was, a true entertainer who was outgoing, loved animals and was a bit of a flirt.

    Joseph was our neighbor at Mariposa Apartment Homes in Joshua, Texas and a good friend .
    He was the “Star” at our Keraok Nights and got a standing ovation many times.
    He rarely missed our morning coffee time with several of the residents
