Joe was born on July 1, 1934, in Witherbee, NY, the son of Grace Mussari Garcia and Centerio Garcia. His parents had a great influence on his life.  Like his mother, who was Italian, Joe enjoyed making his world-famous lasagna. His father, Centerio, immigrated from Spain and passed onto his son an incredibly strong work ethic. Joe received his master’s degree at SUNY Albany and taught at Philip Schuyler School in Albany during his early career.  He later owned and ran a successful construction company in Menands, NY until his retirement.  Joe was a US Army Korean War Veteran.
