My family and I visited Uncle Joe in Florida one year and he took us to a state park that is known for its alligators, as well as showed us all around where he leave and took us to the beach. We all had a good time. My sons and husband enjoyed going fishing with him on the annual Lake Erie Stachniak fishing trip and were saddened when he was not able to go any more. May he rest in peace.
