Joe, I had the pleasure of meeting you and getting to know you first through some wonderful times being bowling teammates and then as my sister's father in law. You were always the epitome of a gentleman. Your smile and twinkle in your eyes always made me smile. It was a pleasure knowing you and I thank you for raising a wonderful husband for my sister. May you rest in peace. Fly high and finally see your Marie again. You will be greatly missed by so many people.

I remember his big smile and that he seemed comfortable just being who he was and that talking with him was always good for laughs.
I guess he's a reminder to me that we can suffer through hard times (like war) and still come out with lots of life left to live. Thanks, Joe!

Dad, you’ll be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you! I can still clearly hear ‘beauty’ when one of you bowling team released a ball! Didn’t matter if it was in the gutter or a strike, it was a ‘beauty’.... every cup of coffee was the best you ever had, every day on the golf course was a blessing! You brought smiles to many a face with your ebullient personality and love of life!! You will be greatly missed!

One of the funniest memories I had with my Pepe was one of the times me and dad picked him up at the airport. The funny thing was sort of a “you had to be there” moment but I will never forget it. I faked sick so I didn’t have to go to school that day because I adored my Pepe and visits weren’t often. I’ll always remember him having tic-tacs or hard candies on deck at all times when I was a little kid and I always thought he was so cool for that. I wish I had more memories with him later in my life but I will forever cherish the ones from my childhood. I love you Pepe!
