Sheehan was a basketball and baseball player at Villanova, and after graduating he pursued both on a professional and semi-professional level afterwards. (He allegedly played catcher in the Yankees farm system, but I have not found those records.)

He later worked as a plumber and died following a lengthy illness.

Joe and his wife, Julia, had three daughters and one son.
