GySgt Marty and I were stationed together in the mid 70s at Camp Pendleton. He was there when one of my sons was born and was around seeing my sons growing up. He even took them out camping when they were older and the kids had a great time with him and still to this day they still remember the great times they had with Uncle Joe. We will all miss him very much. I pray for the family going through this tough time.

GySgt Marty and I were stationed together in the mid 70s at Camp Pendleton as Corporals. Joe & I enjoyed working with Southern California Off-road Racing Enterprises and making trips to Mexico. Over the years we lost contact, and then regained them. As far a I feel, we are brothers with a bond that only Marines know exist. I know Joe's in a better place and has had all of his pain removed. I pray for the family during this tough period and wish them the best. Semper Fi my beloved friend
