My deepest condolences to the entire Kaltenbach family. I worked with Joe for many years at EUCLID, Inc. and found him to be a kind and knowledgeable professional, always willing to help. Within the Warranty Department we counted on Joe and his fellow engineers to help supply the missing pieces to equipment failures, and Joe was so often right on the mark. I also enjoyed Joe's stories of his exploits in white-water rafting. May Joe Rest in God's Loving Arms.

I had the pleasure of talking with Joe several times , working with him as a potential parts supplier for Pioneer . He never failed to pick up the phone and I was impressed on every call not only by his knowledge , but by his kindness to a stranger and his willingness to talk .
I do regret not being able to meet Joe in person ; I know he would have been even a better guy face to face .
My condolences to his family and friends and I feel honored to have know him .

I feel very sorry to hear Joseph Anthony Kaltenbach passed away. He is a very good engineer with excellent expert knowledge in dump truck and brake system. He has been provided many years support for Hitachi truck development. His contribution will be remembered in Euclid and Hitachi construction machinery development history.

Cheri and I extend our deepest condolences to you Phyllis, and your family for your great loss. It was a shock and we are deeply saddened to hear this news. I had the pleasure of working with Joe for three years. I remember Joe's devotion to his family, his quick wit and sense of humor, and always being willing to offer his help. I will never forget Joe as a Cleveland Browns fan who was exited to own a share of stock in the Green Bay Packers. We pray you find comfort during this difficult time. Joe's memory will live on.

I saw Joe twice a year at ConAg in Chicago. He was funny, smart, good to work with... and quick witted with his sense of humor. I am going to miss his laugh and his support.

I wish you comfort in your memories.

I worked with Joe on the SAE technical committees for some 20 years. He was a good worker and I still consider him a good friend even though I had to resign from the committees several years ago and lost touch. My sympathies and prayers go out to his family. He will be missed.

It will be really difficult to find a human being like Joe. Still remember his ever smiling face which never fades. If you speak with him for few minutes, he will change our mood and bring smiles on our face.

I pray God for his sole to rest in peace.

My sincere condolences to his family.
