From: Mary Ann Gordon
Joe was a longtime friend of myself and our family. He brought my daughters a gift each Christmas when they were little and always kept in touch; even if it was only once a year. He and Trish came to my Christmas party here in NJ a few years ago, although he said he didn't like leaving PA. Joe was hard-working and a detailed craftsman; but I valued him for his sense of humor and his ability to laugh at himself. He fought hard to keep his health, but I believe he accepted his fate with the same humor he lived his life by and is telling funny stories to others wherever he is!

From: Tina Temples
I had the honor of spending Joe's last days with him. Still having his sense of humor, we shared a lot of laughs and memories. What a huge loss. Fly my friend, fly
