Joseph was drafted into the Canadian Armed Forces in 1943 working as a heavy artillery operator, then receiving an Honorable Discharge in 1946. Joseph married the one and only love of his life, Caroline that same year and together they farmed the homestead farmland, raising the family there until they moved to Regina in 1968. He obtained his Boiler Ticket and worked in building maintenance throughout Regina until his retirement at age 65.
