Joe was my father-in-law and grandfather to Keith & Brian Arens. I have so many wonderful memories of him presiding over family dinners on Parkgrove in Detroit MI. Over the years he always held a special place in my heart. He will be missed by many.

To Amber and family, Joe has been such a blessing to have known during his time in the knights in Yale. His example as a catholic gentleman was always such a pleasure to see. All the new members learned a lot watching him. Joe will be greatly missed.
