My condolences go out to Joe's family. I knew Joe from working with him at Saco. When I would see Joe at work, I would say "Hi, Joe what do ya know"and his answers always made me smile. A happy go lucky guy, always had a smile for everyone. He was taken way to soon. Joe you touched so many hearts and you will be so dearly missed
