My father Walter, has spoken highly of Joe for almost 20 years. Joe and Walter worked joyously together on the Buildings and Grounds Committee at Redeemer. They shared similar talents and skills. They enjoyed lunches together at the Shrimp Box. Although my dad is in rehab- he sends his sincere sympathy to the family at this time of Joe’s passing.
With blessings and comfort from
Walter and Nancy Dzuroska
