    Joe was a very dear friend to me. He was always there to listen. He was a man of excellent character.
    No pretense just always real. I really appreciated him so much. He is truly missed by me. I thank God for putting him in my life. Gone but not forgotten

    Joe has always been my second dad. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better man for a role model other then my biological dad. No matter what he was always there for me and family. He put up with my brother and I just randomly being at the house weather he wanted us there or not. He always has u limited wisdom to pass on weather it was on deaf ears or not. Always supportive and willing to help if he was able able. I will always remember him, his melt away your trouble hugs, and miss him.
