Joe was born and raised in the Garland area. He attended Bridgerland ATC where he received a Building Construction certificate. He also attended Utah State University. Joe, his brother, Mike, and his father, Ross, have run several farms over the past 20 years. After deciding that farming would not provide his family the security he wanted, Joe worked for Thiokol/ATK before spending the last three years in the funeral industry. Most recently Joe graduated from Arapahoe Community College, in Littleton, Colorado, earning a Mortuary Science degree. Joe is currently licensed to handle the pre planning portion of the funeral business along with being the only licensed funeral director at Rudd Funeral Home.
Joe is anxious to provide the highest quality in funeral service. “This is a service that I can perform for the community and be that outside voice of comfort during very emotional times,” says Joe.
