My prayers and sincerest condolences go out to Peggy and the family on the passing of Joe. Sadly, I have not known Joe for many years, but in the past several had the privilege to be among a Reynolds Metals Company group who met for lunch monthly at a local eatery. Joe added so much wisdom and humor to those meetings as he regaled us with his entertaining work experiences. These lunches will never be the same without him. May he rest in the peace of Christ.

My prayers are with Peggy and the family. I worked for and with Joe at Reynolds Metals Company. We built Malakoff Industries in 1982 together and it is still a thriving business today. I have many fond memories of Joe especially when we traveled to Asia for three weeks in 1989 on company business. He was the perfect gentleman and fun to be with.
