I met Joe when he worked in Estimating at Verbraken Painting about 15 years ago. I was recently out of college, new to construction and working for a general contractor, and spoke to Joe often for bidding new projects.

Joe was always easy going and incredibly friendly. For a job that can be stressful, Joe always smiling and always put a smile on my face when he was in my office.

It was a pleasure to know Joe and work with him, and I offer my condolences to his family.
