Joe came to my house for many years to do my taxes, which grew into my friends and neighbors taxes as well. I always looked forward to seeing him and so did my dogs, he always brought treats in his pocket for them.
Joe was also a long time friend of my sister and her husband, Ruth and Tom Callinan.
We will all miss Joe dearly.
