Joseph grew up in Cranford, New Jersey and graduated from Cranford High School in 1979. He went on to get his B.A. from San Francisco State University. An avid lover of the outdoors, Joseph spent the majority of his adult life in the San Francisco Bay Area.

He is survived by his siblings Kathleen Mulcahy* (Tom), Nancy Malinowski (George), Donald Hilla Jr. (Candace), Maureen Hilla, and Kristan McAliney (Peter), five nieces and nephews and six great nieces and nephews.
