A group of us elementary kids from the Urban Park /Parkdale area met at the Parkdale park. We decided to play spin-the- bottle. Joe spun the bottle and it landed on me. That was my first kiss. How can anybody forget something so sweet. My condolences to his family.

We've known Joe and Judith since moving into Willow Bend Lakes. We've always had enjoyable greetings and discussions while on our daily constitutional walks. They loved our dogs and our dogs loved them. We will miss Joe and his lively and friendly personality. Together they were a pillar of Willow Bend Lakes and cared for the community deeply.
Joe will be sorely missed. Our deepest condolences Judith for your loss!
