When my daughter, Jessica, was young Joe and Peggy used to visit us nearby in Orlando. Joe loved my country cooking. We enjoyed their company. Once he researched toddler toys and bought Jessica one of her all time favorite toys. She had so much fun playing with it and him. The toy even held up to be passed along to my second daughter, Holly. He was a kind and generous man and I will miss him.

Peggy,

We will miss Joe very much and know your heart hurts. He is in the heavens now, enjoying the beautiful greens there and is at peace. I loved Joes sense of humor, listening to his worldly travels and always asking for Greek pastries. We loved him very much. We love you. RIP Joe Lidon.

Joe had a taste for adventure and in his travels was able to see much of the world. It’s sad that the day has come that Joe has passed. May he rest in pease on his journey to heaven.
