Joe was born on September 23, 1954 in the City of St. Louis to Ruth and Emil Fronek. He was a music fan from a young age so when the opportunity to work over the road with musicians came, he grabbed it and hung on. He spent his life doing what he loved, traveling from town to town with creative greats, eating good food, and drinking hot coffee.
In-lieu of a service, Joe’s family plans to take his ashes on one last great road trip.
