Joe will be missed. He helped his neighborhood by making us feel more like a family. A true patriot, Joe exemplifies what it means to be a brother, father, husband, friend, and neighbor. My family mourns his loss, though we are happy to have known him.

Dear Annie and the family of Joe,
He was the one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever met. Never did he come into DVFCU Redbank without giving hugs and appreciation to our staff. We will miss him (with his smiling eyes) very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days to come.

To Annie and all of Joe's family,
He was one of the finest, kindest people I have ever met. He loved life and the Lord. Never did he come into DVFCU West Side without giving hugs and appreciation to our staff. He was like family to all of us, and he (with his smiling eyes) will be missed very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time, and the days to come.
