His wife Saundra Gaudio Baird was by his side as he peacefully passed. They were married December 31, 1971. Joseph was raised in Provo, UT and lived there all his life. His father opened “Joe’s Spic-n-Span Café” in 1937. His father taught Joe and his brother Ron all of the recipes for a successful business. They fed the BYU football players for over sixty years. Everyone ate at “Joe’s”! His interest for years was trap shooting. He received the 500 straight patch and traveled to many cities to shoot, and won many awards. Joseph’s hobby was baseball and he loved it with a passion. He was even approached by a professional team to try out. He was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He spent many days on his Harley motorcycle with his wife behind him. Together they took their boat to as many lakes as they could, and they loved going to Lake Powell with family and friends.
