I'm so sorry for your loss and my condolences to the family! Joe was by far one of the most interesting people I ever met and I never knew where our conversations were going to go but always loved listening to him! I knew Joe for quite a while and it's sad that I'll never have the chance to have one of those conversations again! His death is very sad and extremely untimely❤ you'll forever be in our hearts and our thoughts! You'll be missed

Joe can't be summed up in words...he's a mystery..wrapped in a riddle....then deep fried. You might live another 50yrs and never meet another.
