Dear friends,

My name is Ko, Kyu-Tae and I'm president of VME Tech, Inc. Personally I've worked with Acromag for 30 years as their distributor and most of my time with Joe.
Every time I think of Joe, I don't know why but I remembered Santa! So every year Christmas, I remember him naturally.
Yes, Joe was a colleague and close friend with pleasant memories for me.
I heard the sudden news of his death today and I don't know how to express this sadness.
But every time it is Christmas, every time I see Santa holding a gift, I think of Joe.

Yours faithfully,
President, VME Tech, Inc.

I first met him 20 years ago. My company (VME Tech, Inc.) was Acromag's distributor in S.Korea. When I met him at first, I remember that he had a very friendly smile with a beard that looked like KFC's grandfather.
I can't forget his smile and great humor. From then on, he was our good friend and business senior until he retired from Acromag. I am so sad to hear about his sudden death today.
There are no words to adequately describe the sadness I felt but I pray peace of mind comes to his family soon.

Michelle Lee from VME Tech, Inc., South Korea.

I worked with Joe for most of my career and enjoyed his spirit and drive for success. He had an enormous contribution to the success of Acromag, leading International Sales, Product Planning, and many other Sales and Marketing positions. He retired with many friends at Acromag and we are all saddened by the loss of Joe. He had many friends that we work with around the world even today, that he shared much time with. We will cherish our time and memories of Joe and keep his family in our thoughts and prayers.
