Dearest Marilynn & Sons,
I am so saddened to hear of your loss. Joe & I worked together in Chicago in reservations. We rode the train together to work on many occasions. There was always much to share & "mucho" laughter. Time slips by so quickly, I believe our last meeting was @ my wedding in Tucson. Please know that I keep all of you in my prayers & I know Joe is "stirring the pot" in heaven...God must have needed a wonderful man & "mucho" laughter in heaven!!!
Many Blessings, Julie

Happy Birthday Uncle Joe, 2018

It was a pleasure to meet you uncle Joe, you where an awesome person with so many cool stories, always making a joke and bringing in a little bit of your humor. You have been a good example to be a worrier and even in the hard times you stayed positive and maintained a tender heart. You will be missed a lot.

I am sorry to hear of Joe's passing. I attended grade school and high school with his sister Maria, and interacted with Joe on numerous occasions. I played ice hockey with Joe on the lake, and remember him as a funny and energetic person, as well as a good hockey player.
I am sure he will be missed by his family and friends. May he rest in peace.

Marilyn and family, I am so sorry to hear of Joe's illness and passing. I enjoyed working alongside Joe at Delta. He was always there to lend a helping hand. I remember when both Joe's (Scotillo and Demasi) drywalled my garage when we moved down from Chicago to Northern KY. Now, they are buddies together again catching up on the years. Joe was the boss and everyone listened! He was such a good guy with a heart of gold and will be fondly remembered.
