Our families (the Mankeys and the Webster’s) go back a long way. I grew up by their farm. My kids and my grandkids were frequent visitors there, especially to ride Buttercup, visit the barns and chicken coop. We will all miss Joe, a decent and kind soul. Our sympathy to Jody and rest of the family.

Joe was a good, honest, and hardworking man. I enjoyed setting and talking to him when we would visit. He will be missed.
