Dear Nadia & family,
I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Joe. Our friendship goes back many years ago to Belle Vernon, where we raised our families. So many fond memories, over the years, renewing our friendship in Pittsburgh & Naples, FL.
May God be close to all of you during this difficult time, and may Joe rest in peace in God's loving hands.

I am so saddened by the loss of Joe. He and Nadia were terrific neighbors for 20 years, next door AND down the street! Joe always maintained a beautiful yard with Nadia. We always enjoyed our "dinner club" events with the Filars, where we would alternate homes for a fun filled evening of food and conversation. Joe taught me how to make the perfect Manhattan, and do on many occasions, toast him after making one. I hope to keep up with Nadia as she has moved out closer to where we live now. I missed seeing Joe and Nadia on a regular basis after moving out of the sub in 2018. Rest in peace, good friend and neighbor! Dan, Dale and Lori.

Hi Dan,
My deepest condolences to you, Susan and your whole family on the loss of your Dad. Having met him at your house a few years ago, I remember him distinctly (as well as your Mom). He was so affable and engaging and we had a very nice conversation. His pride in you and your family were so apparent, and from the scope of the conversation it was obvious that he was one who embraced and enjoyed all aspects of life. My heart goes out to you and the whole family. Damon and I express our deepest sympathies, and our prayers are with you.
Sincerely,
Dianne

Joe was a great friend and totally devoted to Nadia and his family. I have many fond, land and sea memories. He was always even keel and fun to be with. He leaves a wonderful legacy and he will be missed

Joe was a great guy to work for and to work with. He was my supervisor during the early years of my work career and I learned so much from him; how to treat people fairly, how to command respect by giving respect, how to solve problems, and how to avoid creating problems. I remember what he told me when he moved on to Chrysler. Joe knew that the company we worked for was making a big mistake by going into a product they knew very little about, He was so right!

But most of all, I knew how much Joe loved Nadia and his sons. They were everything to him. So, may God grant to his servant Joseph, Eternal Memory and Peaceful Repose

Joe was a wonderful boss and mentor to me early in my career. On bad weather days we would travel together to work, and we shared a couple business trips. I admired him as a leader and friend, and these experiences we shared are the source of pleasant memories. Cathy and I send our prayers for the comfort of Nadia and the boys (now men of course, but we remember them in their youth.)
