Papa showed his love by giving you the biggest hugs, crying with joy when he sees you at the airport, engaging in conversation with you making you feel like you were the most important person in the world. He gave great encouragement and pushed you in the right direction. He loved us grandkids and great grandkids. We will always miss gathering around the kitchen table for family fellowship and love. You will be remembered and missed.Love Joey, Janine, Danielle

Our condolences to Patty and the entire family on the loss of Joe. While not official, Joe was an "Uncle" to us Hosman children and was a true and wonderful friend to my parents, Ron and Germaine. He will be truly missed and always remembered. Love,

Dear Patty Ann, I am profoundly sad at Uncle Joe's death.
Uncle Joe was full of life and had a great laugh.
He was `Christmas Eve' for the Capaccio's in Chicago during the late 1970s-1980s. Nobody (with Aunt Ree) did it better. He made you forget Santa with the smelts, shrimp, and Baccala -- fried and cold in a salad.
It was a feast that made me think of Christmas Eve all year round. I still can't cook the stuff like he did. Nobody could.
Joe's house on Christmas Eve was filled with all that great good, fellowship and colorful characters. And lots of love.
Uncle Joe would hug you so hard a rib could crack, as he piled smelts on a plate.
. Now he's gone. I'll always remember him. Love ..

While I only got to speak with Joe briefly for a few minutes one morning, I observed him many times during his usual Sunday morning visits to the cemetery in Miamisburg. I approached him and told him how impressive it was to see how he honored the memory of his late wife. It was clear to me in just that one conversation how much he was missing the great love of his life. I imagine they're having a grand reunion now. Obviously, I didn't have as much contact as family and friends, but it only took that one conversation to feel like I was talking with a good friend.
