I always remember Joe as he delivered gas to grandpa in Mountain. Hed stop by the house and have coffee or a quick hello. Always had a story to tell. Another memory is when Graftons volleyball team got stranded in Walhalla, we were told if we knew someone in town we could call. I called and Joe didnt hesitate to come pick 4 of us up to spend the night at your place. Many great memories of family get togethers and August the Deuce. Joe will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Scott and I send our most sincere condolences to you Maryann, Doug, Richard, Lori, and Janelle, and to all the family. Thoughts, prayers and much love are with you all!

From my earliest memories of Joe what stands out the most in my mind was his enormous smile and joking manor. He always had a story to tell and he was always so funny. What impressed me the most about Joe was his kind Heart. He certainly will be missed. Mary Ann and Family my heartfelt condolences as well as my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Joe will most certainly live in all of our memories forever! God Bless all of you!
