We shared the road together in 2016 in our first Hoka, we spent time together in Sturgis doing what we loved. We spent the last few months planning for Hoka (which I had to step away from this year) and talking about riding the Trans America Trail next year.
My friend, my brother, your spirit will live on! You are one of the few great ones.
Ride the highway in the sky till we meet again. I will ride for you here every mile with honor!

Joe came to my office every day that he was working to deliver our packages. He often ate his lunch at our office and we talked to him every day. Many times he used that time to get in touch with customers to arrange pick up of packages as he treated everyone like their package was the most important package he was delivering. He will be missed dearly and our office will fondly remember all of our conversations with Joe.
