Joe was born February 2, 1933 to Alex and Iona (Pingel) Wolf. Growing up in Stockbridge WI, Joe graduated in 1950 and entered the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict serving as a Guard Mail Petty Officer in Hawaii. He was a proud veteran and a lifetime member of Neenah VFW Post 10893.

Joseph worked at Milwaukee's Chain Belt, the Menasha Wood Split Pulley Company before starting his career at the Neenah Foundry in 1957.
