Growing up I always looked forward to going to Uncle Joe and Aunt Dotty's house. Loved her cooking and loved going for ice cream. Uncle Joe always had a warm hug and big smile waiting for me. He was one of my favorite cousins. Over the years I was lucky to be able to keep in touch with him. He will be missed and I know he and my Mom and Dad are right there with him and Aunt Dotty. He missed his cousin Billy ( William Allen) so much he followed him two day later. Love ya..

When Grandpa broke his hip, he came to my job where he did rehab. Through out his time there he would tell me “Katie, I’m so lucky because you’re my granddaughter and you’re taking care of me”. I say I’m the lucky one; I had one of the most sweetest and funny Grandpa’s. No one at work believed he was 94 years old! He looked good and was still so sharp and funny.....and strong determination to get back on his feet. Grandpa was proud seeing me at work and I promise to be the nurse my Grandpa was so proud of.

Growing up with Grandpa was a joy. The first time I ever went fishing was with my Dad, Brother, and Grandpa. He is the reason I love going fishing every summer.

Three years ago my sister Janine passed away and Uncle Joe came to the wake. I was happy to see him and went right over to talk to him. He struggled to remember who I was and I told him different stories, hoping to jog his memory. Then I recalled that in high school I had gotten sick and my dad couldn't come get Uncle Joe came and picked me up..."oh yeah" he said..."you threw up in my car! I remember you!" Damn, I thought...that's how I'm the kid who threw up in Uncle Joe's car. LOL. Uncle Joe (and Aunt Dottie) were the a family of great folks, those Kusterbecks. It's the end of an era with his passing...and I'll treasure all my memories of living around the corner from them in Richmond Hill. I'll certainly miss what a snazzy dresser he was.

To my cousins and all my other younger relatives, my wife and I offer you our heartfelt sympathy at this loss. It is the end of an era. The last survivor of the family of so much decency that I was born into is gone. May the memories of your father and grandfather stay with you and continually bring smiles to your face as the years pass. He was a good man and you have much to be proud of in him. May God give you all peace and healing.
Cousin Bill, Uncle Chester's son

I will always remember Uncle Joe for his sweet disposition and kindness. I am so sorry for the loss his children and grandchildren must feel and will keep you all in my prayers that you remember only the good times and the love You shared. I am sure there is a huge welcome mat in heaven of all the relatives ....Aunt Dotty and my Dad , Chester first among them to show him around .

Grandpa took us fishing in various places in Delco, PA. For some reason, he always used chicken livers as bait. We never caught anything worth keeping, after all, it was not like MN. Lake fishing! He was so patient, kind, and always made me feel loved. I will miss him and will be forever greatfuul for his unconditional love.
