Joe was born in the small town of Ljubac, Croatia on August 25, 1938. His childhood memories involved working diligently with his family, the hard times of the Second World War and the aftermath. At the age of 19 Joe began his journey to Canada to escape from communist controlled Yugoslavia by jumping the cruise ship he worked on. From there, he began his journey to Canada and ultimately ended up in Saskatchewan, where he married his wife on November 19, 1960.


Joe and Evelyn moved to Calgary in 1960, where Joe began his career as a baker and they had their two children. In 1970, Joe and Evelyn bought the Golden Bakery and moved their family to Golden.


Ten years later, Joe and Evelyn built the home they would spend the remainder of his life in.
