Stan and I were neighbors of Blake for 35+ years. He was a wonderful man! He won 'yard of the month', kept track of the kids going to and from school, and always had Doofus or Maynard with him as a 'best friend'.
I bought his 2 'Adirondack' chairs for my yard and think of him often.
It was a joy to know him.

Uncle Joe was such a good man. He loved and cared for everyone. He was absolutely so funny. And I’ll always be grateful for the way he looked after my dad. ❤️ Love you Uncle Joe! Rest In Peace!
