It was my pleasure to work with Joe beginning at the OBT store. Anytime I spoke to Joe evan after I retired he made sure to ask me about how my wife and sons were doing. He has been a great friend to everyone as well as myself.
RIP my friend.

I worked with Joe at Carrier and he was always kind and helpful to me. His positive outlook helped me out in more ways than he could have known. Thank you Joe for being an amazing human being.

Dear Joe,
I write this as if you are here, because you are, though our hearts be heavy and our countenance have fallen, our sadness dissipates with every thought and memory we all shared with you. Thoughts triggered by a yellow mustard Corvette, your friendly welcoming smile, your warm "Hello this is Joe, may I help you" as you answer the phone, to your wonderful "painfully" thorough service you provided to each and every customer without discrimination. There is so much more, but time and space does not allow here, but we all know them.

For the time, we are parted from each others presence, but for a moment...and that moment will pass, where we too will cross over.
Yes, we all can say in confidence, that you live even more today than ever before.
We all miss you Joe. And may we all follow your example.
God bless!

Rest in peace my friend.
It was difficult to me to accept your departure when I was told.
I never thought that almost four weeks ago when I passed by Carrier in the afternoon to pick up a motor that you sold me that day it was going to be the last time I would see you.
Since your departure to the place where a blind man can see and where there is no pain and suffering I have thought a lot about life.
How an honorable man like you, father of family and a great friend to many like me can leave so early?
What comforts me is that your kind spirit will stay alive with all those who your kindness and love have touched.
You will be missed but never forgoten.

Joe will truly be missed by all. There was never a time that I called or went into the store that Joe did not ask how my husband and boys were doing.
He was such an incredible man with such a kind heart. He will be missed by all.
Rest in Peace Joe.

We had the honor of growing up with Joe for over 13 years of our lives. He was always the protector of his family. Trying to have their best interests at heart. We were deeply saddened to hear of his sudden passing. Life truly is short. May Luke, Tyler and Mom find peace in time. Holding on to those memories they had together as they try to move forward. Love and Prayers sent from Kristen, Joel and Children- Brian, Megan and Children.
