To the family,

Joe was a super guy who was always fun to be around. He treated me with his friendship since I was a boy watching him play JC baseball. He had a knack to bring a smile to one’s face just by being seen.

With tremendous respect for who he was, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Leave A Condolence
