I'll always remember a few years ago when we had a large snowfall and I saw Joe outside shoveling his drive.
I went over to help him with my snow shovel and saw he was using a steel heavy coal shovel. After 30 minutes of hard shoveling I was getting tired but Joe continued on. I asked him a few times if he wanted to take a break and he kinda grunted and continued shoveling. No break for me..
I was exhausted when I got home and he probably was too but I'm sure he was smiling and pretty proud of himself for not letting someone half his age out do him. Gonna miss watching Joe push mow his yard even if it took him two days. A man of a few words but in his own way an inspiration to those of us watching.
