ADD A MEMORY
Regina Sacha-Ujczo

I have known Joe and Denise and their lovely family from St. Anthony of Padua Church for many decades where I am the Organist/Soloist. It was always a joy to see them come to Mass early Sunday morn. I would glance over from the Organ and see his smiling face. You could count on Joe to add magnificent presence to a room and be delightfully candid. He lived life. I shall miss him but know that he has left a lasting impression upon me and all those who were privileged to know him. My sympathy to his wife of 50 years and family for surely he leaves a tremendous void. I pray his memories will fill that void with laughter and joy. It was my supreme honor today to play and sing his funeral mass. I sang for God and Joe today....

My deepest sympathy to Joe's family. I had the honor of working with Joe at CEI at the Strongsville Line Shop. Joe and the crew were a band of brothers and I had the honor of being their "adopted" sister working there as their Operations Clerk and Timekeeper. We had a lot of laughs back then and Joe was always a kind friend to me. I am so sorry for your loss and pray for your strength to move through this sad time.

Dear Denise and family,
My deepest condolences, Joe and Denise had a special place in my heart and childhood. I had the priveledge and honor of being a groomsman in their wedding 50 years ago.

I shared some good times with my cousin, my father and myself were on a bowling team with Joey and Uncle Delphi for a few years back in the day and will always be a fond memory.

As the saying goes " Some people may pass and leave this earth , but their spirit remains forever." Nothing good be more true with Joe.

We met Joe and Denise on a trip to Washington DC. We had so much in common and shared many conversations and lots of laughs. Let’s just say it was love at first conversation.
It’s rare that you can make friends as fast as we did but Joe was such a loving, wonderful man and Denise a sweet lady. Reno truly felt connected to Joe.
Joe will be greatly missed. We love you both.

Dear Denise, Sara, and Vincent:
Sincere sympathy for your loss. I will always remember my cousin as a person who lit up a room when he entered. He had such a great personality, smile and sense of humor. My mom and dad loved him and always enjoyed his company.

Thinking of all of you,

Love, Char
