After much encouragement he ran and was elected as Business Agent. He earned a diploma from the Labor School of the University of Massachusetts in Boston. During his time with the Teamsters he represented companies in the Oil and Airline Divisions. He was very proud of his hard work to get jobs, benefits, healthcare, and wages for the men that he represented.

As a young man Joe enjoyed playing hockey with his friends, he was an avid golfer, and enjoyed traveling. He loved going to Las Vegas and visited Europe 12 times.

He is survived by his loving wife Veronica "Ronnie" M. (Stascavage) Laffey, his devoted children Maureen Bills and her husband Stephen of Victor, NY and Michael J.
