Bro. Joe was a very special, kind Christian man and a deacon at our church. I don't think I ever saw him without a smile, I am saddened to hear of his passing, my heartfelt sympathy to all Joe's family. May God wrap each one of you in his faithful love, bringing peace and comfort!

I had the privilege of knowing Joe when I worked at the AEA building. What a blessing to have known him. When he wasn’t hard at work he was at his desk reading his Bible. So sorry for your loss.
