I have so many good memories of uncle Joe but the one I’ll never forget was on my wedding day. joe had been giving me a hard time saying he’d shoot me if I tried to run before the wedding. He could tell I was a nervous wreck and he called me over to him and opened his jacket and the was a bright yellow and orange swart gun and he just smiled. I’ll never not think of him anytime I play golf shoot pool or play cards. We lost a great one

I didn't know Joe but read lots of his comments on the Ceredo-Kenova facebook page. He was a year younger that I am and I also am a C-K grad. I felt like I knew him. I was shocked to hear of his death.
Sincere sympathy to his wife and children and extended family. I know their hearts are broken.
Prayers for all of you during this difficult time.
