I remember when I met Joe for the first time in 2015, he was so kind with a great sense of humor. He was always smiling and nice to people when he saw them, and he always found the time to talk to me and held great conversations not just with me, but with my whole family and others.
I'll always have a memory of him in my front yard; a Quince tree that he gifted to my family and thought us how to take care of.
He was a great person and will rest in peace.

I met Joe when I first came to the US. Joe was my brother in-law Frank’s brother. Joe was a sweet and kind person with a good heart. He will always be in our hearts.

My daughter and I visited Joe, Mina and Annarita in the spring of 2003. Joe was very kind and hospitable, a great Italian in every sense of the word. A wonderful sense of humor and spirit.
