I’ve known Joe as a neighbor, a friend, and as a good man who was a loving father to his children. He certainly had many trials and challenges in his life, but I have always known him to have a smile on his face and a cheerful disposition in his heart. As I look upon his picture here, I feel like it captures the essence of the man I knew.
I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing as I regretfully have not seen him a lot over the past few years. I feel we are all better for knowing him, and he will be greatly missed by me and my family. I only hope that he knew the fondness that I held for him and the appreciation of the memories that we shared.
