Was Joseph (Jesus’ father) mentioned besides the part that Jesus was born?

I've seen Joseph mentioned in other parts of the gospels but it's still related with Jesus' birth so I'm not sure if it counts. For example, in John 6:41-42, Jesus said he came from heaven but the Jews were like, "Isn't he Joseph's son?" (paraphrased).

We know Joseph was from the line of David (Luke 2:4)

this is a good question...i can only recall reading about Joseph in the gospels when Jesus was an infant and a child but not too much in Jesus' adult life

One thing I was taught is that he passed away when Jesus was at a young age. 
Because during Jesus' ministry, his brothers and mother are mentioned multiple times, but never his father.
