Joe was always very dedicated to his career as a truck driver and mechanic. He often considered his kids the pride and joy of his life. His generosity was always front and center, welcoming all with open arms into his home. His most notable nickname was “Papa Joe”, which was used by many who loved him.

I knew joe for many many yrs, He was a good man, had a big heart, loved his family. never had a unkind word to say about anyone. If he sees you he would always make sure to say Hi and ask how you are doing. whenever we ran into each other he would make me smile. Joe you will sadly be missed, but never forgotten. R.I.P.

Dearest Joe, your contagious laughter and enthusiasm warmed my heart and were the first of many beautiful memories of my first stay in the USA to get to know my part of the American family. Thanks God for meeting you!
I'll miss you.

my friend, you have been a prat of my life for so many years now... far away in physical distance, but close in my mind and prayers. it is bizarre to no longer pray for you, or for my sister who went before you. i have regrets of not being able to be more present when you guys needed it. and i have so many times this past week i sit and wish i could have said goodbye. and so i will take this space and moment to say so now. goodbye, my friend bro-seph.

Even though our friendship was a short few months you taught me the value of kindness and shared lessons on life. I'll never forget our talks King. Joe you touched my heart in many ways. “Some people come into our lives and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same”  you have forever left footprints in my heart.
To his children, his world. My heart is with you all.
