My Uncle Joe was larger than life. In life my dad and he were best friends so we shared so many weekend days and evenings with Uncle Joe, Aunt Ann and family. One of my fondest memories was as an adult and having bible studies in their back yard on Downing. Prior to that when I moved back to Denver from San Diego I met them for lunch in Arizona and once again shared about God. I know they treated everybody the same, but they always made me feel like I was the only one in the room. The many positive interactions with Uncle Joe were and have always been very special because it helped to shape the kind of man I want to be. I love you Uncle Joe and look forward to seeing you again when I go home.... Your humble nephew, Stephen Abeyta

Uncle Joe was a wonderful Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather. He lived his faith everyday and always made you feel welcome. I will never forget the "boat" trip at the Lake!! Every time after that day, I would see Uncle Joe, and he would always greet me with, "ready for ride on my boat"!! and we would have a great laugh!! We did this up until the last time I saw him!! I will always remember his laugh and his love of family!! Here's to Uncle Joe, I know I will see him again and we will take the boat ride!!
