Joe was born and raised in Sladran, Co. Donegal, Ireland, to the late John and Mary Fullerton.

Joe left the Isle of Ireland, in June 1964 and settled in the United States with the love of his life, his wife Mary. Together they raised their only daughter, Mary, the apple of her father’s eye.

Joe was a member of the famous Donegal Tunnel Tigers, commonly known as the Tunnel Tigers of Inishowen. He was a legend of the tunnel world and is fondly remembered as one of the great tunnelers of his time, he was known affectionately amongst his colleagues as Blonde Joe. He was the glamor boy of the bunch with his dazzling good looks and swashbuckling style.

Joe was a skilled worker, a devoted husband, a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He is another legend gone to soon, but his wit and blaggarding charm will live forever. He will be dearly missed; however, his family finds comfort in the many treasured memories he leaves behind.
