Joe was my friend from high school. I'm not exactly sure how we met, but his always humorous demeanor was certainly a draw. I recall being with Joe at his familys home in Pompton Plains, NJ, and seeing him among his very passionate Italian family members was awe-inspring! My family was not as outgoing as all his aunts and uncles, so it was always a fun experience to witness that. Our parents both agreed that we were 'bad influences' on each other, but we never let that get in our way! Joe was always into music and was never shy about belting out a tune if he heard a similar line from a friend. Always singing into the 'air microphone' he was. I remember us singing in his Ford Falcon, the Grand Funk RR song, "I'm Your Captain". Ride that ship well, my friend, you're back home "in your port"... I will miss you.
