He was a communicant of Saints Patrick and Raphael Parish in Williamstown. He was a member of the New York State United Teachers Association. During retirement he volunteered at the Milne Public Library, at the Mt. Greylock Guidance Office and served on the board of Greylock A Better Chance.

His wife of 58 years Gail (Sullivan) Colpoys whom he married August 18, 1956, died on July 14, 2015. Joe is survived by his daughter Liz Costley and her husband Tom and his wonderful grandchildren Cate and Luke. He was predeceased by his older daughter Abbie in 2006.
