My most endearing memory of Joe centers around NewYears Eve celebrations with the Cointment’s. Joe always assumed his place seated Buddha-style on the kitchen island, from whence he hosted a delightful evening of laughter with his colleagues and their families. The TI engineers would spend time solving the world’s problems on one side of the room, while the TI wives spent their time comparing recipes and gossip as only TI wives could. And a good time was had by all at Kay and Joe’s!!
