Joe was born with his twin brother Christian, to Peter and Christina Thome on November 3, 1922 in Prelate, SK. He was raised on the family farm near Fox Valley and attended a country school serving the area. He married Hazel Steen in 1945 when she came to teach in the area, and the young couple moved to Moose Jaw shortly after.

After his retirement, he and Hazel enjoyed many trips together, including a trip to the Hoover Dam, and Disneyland. They loved to entertain, and enjoyed many visits with friends playing cards, or going to dances. At home, Joe loved to watch Westerns, loved cars and his frequent visits to the car lots will be missed, especially by his friends at Western Dodge and Moose Jaw Ford.
