Joe started the CGE Volleyball League and Men’s Basketball League; organized the first industrial physical activities at CGE in 1960; introduced slo-pitch softball in Eastern Ontario; and was founding president of the city Horseshoe Club in 1975. He also coached a minor softball team to a title and won a match play golf competition.
