Pre-Apocalypse

Tallahassee

Nothing is known about Joe's life before the apocalypse, except that Joseph is a 73-year-old man who ran a grocery store for forty-three years in Tallahassee's tough Frenchtown area. Joseph looked the other way when the poor kids from the neighborhood came in to steal diapers and formula and ran off the counterfeit food stamps for the local mothers. He had a decent relationship with his wife Ida. The two were happily married for fifty years, childless yet devoted to their marriage.

Woodbury

After the Church group finally decides to all be part of the mass suicide in Woodbury to join with God, Joseph helps the females of the church prepare the sacramental food and drink back in the kitchen.

After, Jeremiah hands Joseph a cup, and Joe knows back the tepid fluid that has expects will finally bring his long, full life close.
