Joe was married to Florence Vidana in civil matrimony on 27 Dec. 1948, and in holy matrimony on 8 July 1950; they were married for 69 years. Joe's life will continue to be cherished in the lives of his children: Marlene (James) Garcia, Shirley Vidana-Ortiz, Verna Vidana, Kelly (Kelli) Vidana, Randy (Lisa) Vidana, Shayla (Matt) Ruggier; his 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren.

He played semi-professional baseball with the St. Joseph Cubs and Jones Mortuary teams; including several elite baseball teams in the Pueblo area. He loved time spent with all his grandchildren and loved watching them grow to adulthood. Pipes would hope that you do a random act of kindness for someone down-and-out or an unfortunate soul, in his name. Thank you to Dr. Michael Barris for all the care given
