My deepest sympathies to your family. I first met Joe in 9th grade. He sat by me in Mrs. Kelly's English class. I was one of those kids who talked & since Joe sat by me I talked to him. Joe was very popular & for good reason, outside of being a handsome kid he was funny & kind. You knew he loved his family & was a good friend. I reconnected with Joe through FB & when his wife Diane got sick I shared with Joe my own story of liver disease. Joe & family were in my prayers & I tried to share as many encouraging words with him as God gave me. Through it all his love for God, his family & friends shined through his shattered heart. May God comfort & bless your family. Joe is fondly remembered & will be greatly missed.


Joe was such a good Christian man. I really enjoyed knowing him. My heartfelt prayers to all the family.
