Joe was born 3/3/55 in Cleveland.  His father was a naval aviator.  Shortly after his birth, Joe and his mother went to the Navy base in Pensacola, Florida so Joe Sr. could see his son for the first time.  

This was a "press pass" picture from Joe's college internship at the Troy Daily News in Ohio.

Joe (#11, just to the right of the football) was the starting quarterback on his high school junior varsity team.

Joe met and married his wife Liz in Homer, Alaska.  They got married on a beach there in January.  They subsequently honeymooned at a "fishing cabin" on Seldovia Island, Alaska -- where there was no Champaign Jacuzzi.  

The Schriners spent a couple years on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on a small "farmstead," where they started to raise a family -- including several goats.

Update 10/13/17.  Time marches on... Sarah is now a senior at Franciscan U.  And these are some photos from her Homecoming soccer game. (They won in overtime!). Joseph is now a sophomore at Franciscan U.  He's getting ready for the basketball season. Jonathan is now a freshman at Bluffton High School where he is playing varsity soccer, giving his mom Parent's Night carnations, going to Homecoming dances, and using more hair glue than I ever thought possible. I, in turn, am long past the hair glue stage and just, well, contemplating yet more of 'Life in the Middle.'
