Catholics: How come no-one venerates this guy?

Joseph, Jesus dad, I think he deserves some veneration, I mean he walked across the desert while Mary rode on the donkey, he raised Jesus, I think he deserves it, agree? If not why?
Update: Well he seems to be ignored in my Parish, I would rather pray for his help then Mary.
Update 2: St Joseph Patron Saint of Communism
