Joe was one of the best, sweetest men I have known. My husband, Scruffy and i shared many cruises & trips to St. Pete Beach, FL before Scruffy passed away and I feel truly blessed to be included on cruises & trips as part of the family since. I feel as I have lost a brother. Joe was so sweet to my mother before she passed also-many great memories. Rest in Peace Joe. You will be truly missed by so many.

Joe, you are truly a beautiful soul! We can never thank you enough for being such an amazing friend. You epitomize the perfect husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. So many have looked up to you, from your family to the many Soldiers during your Service and so many friends. You will definitely be missed but never forgotten Pops!
