Many knew him by Giuseppe Salvatore Vincenzo Bottini, and he was a proud Italian man. He worked as a route driver for Hostess for 30 years.

Joe volunteered for the Knights of Columbus, Men of Beaumont as he graduated from Beaumont High School, and he was in the Italian American Club. With his wife he enjoyed going to the movies, watching sports, traveling, cruises and most of all, spending time with their grandchildren.
