Birth: Apr. 26, 1918
Syracuse
Onondaga County
New York, USA
Death: Oct. 2, 1943, Denmark

Joseph served as a 1st Lt. and Pilot on B-17F #42-30421 in the 561st Bomber Squadron, 388th Bomber Group, U.S. Army Air Force during World War II.

He resided in Onondaga County, New York prior to the war.

He enlisted in the Army on April 14, 1941, prior to the war, in Syracuse, New York. He was noted as being employed as a Retail manager and also as Single, without dependents.

He was "Killed In Action" after a raid on Denmark during the war and was awarded a Purple Heart.

Three to four minutes after having dropped the bomb load B-17F #42-30421 ran into problems. Apparently it was hit by flak and the propeller on number one engine was feathered while at the same time a minor fire started in number two engine. The aircraft entered a spiral dive over the North Sea while the crew bailed out. Ten parachutes were observed.
