Joe and Diane have been long time friends of Bonnie and me. Joe suffered greatly through the last years of his life but always chugged forward with his saying, "It is what it is". We just talked to him a couple of weeks ago and we are so glad we had that opportunity. Joe always bragged to me that he had been retired longer than anyone he or I ever knew. I always enjoyed our visits at the Rissky get-togethers and on the phone. Joe and I shared a love of music. Rest in peace my friend. Our deepest condolences to Diane and the Bazant family. We will miss Joe.
