Joe was born in Detroit, graduated from Central High School and went on to earn his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Michigan. He practiced architecture throughout his life and served as a professor of architecture for several decades at Lawrence Technological University. He died peacefully in the home he designed and built 58 years ago. In addition to architecture, his passions included the Zionist Organization of America, where he served as President for 5 years, Jewish causes of all kinds, sailing, photography and travel.

Joe was an avid reader, intellectual and dedicated learner. He was curious about the world and strived to use his acquired knowledge and wisdom to improve it. Above all, he was a kind and generous man who loved his family and friends dearly and whose life was enriched by their presence, love and devotion.

Joe is survived by his beloved wife of 62 years, Diane Savin; his sons and daughters-in-law, Dr. Michael and Julie Savin, Dr. Daniel Savin and Dr. Jill Levy, and Andrew and Courtney Savin; grandchildren Dr. Jeffrey Savin, Kimberly Savin, Naomi Savin, Asher Savin, Leah Savin and Aliza Savin.

He was the loyal brother of the late Sylvia Iwrey and her late husband Sol Iwrey; devoted son of the late Jacob and the late Stella Savin. He was the faithful brother-in-law of the late Seymour Lesser and the late Ann Lesser; the late Ruthe Stein and the late Saul Stein; the late Dorothy Frazein and the late Douglas Frazein.
