MEMORIES OF JOE
Almost as if it were yesterday, and not a sunny September day in 1962, I remember walking into the old dorm room on 2nd Brute for the first time, and there, with his right hand extended and a huge grin on his face, was this big kid with some of the longest hair I had ever seen on a guy. He was dressed in solid black, head to toe, and spoke with a really cool and deep Brooklyn accent. That was Joe Walz. We quickly became best of friends and then on to be roommates for all four years at Mt. St. Mary’s. He was, as Rusty Hanna has said, one of the finest people you could ever know, and I couldn’t agree more. He was such a good man in so many ways! My mother thought he looked like a movie star and my sister claimed he was the best dancer she ever met. As a roommate, I never saw Joe in a bad mood nor was there ever a cross word between us. We had countless adventures together, academic as well as otherwise, yet I think my favorite memory of him was how he was almost always smiling and how easy it was for him to make you laugh. Requiescat in pace, Joe.
