I had the opportunity to meet Joe, while working at liberty hospital. He was such a wonderful man, a fighter, a lover, and a doughnut lover! Sometimes my visits would last longer than they should, but I just couldn’t help talking with him, he was such a pleasant soul to be around. You will be missed by so many Joe. Prayers ~Roe ♥️

We are so sorry. These miserable times of suffering are finally over for Joe. He fought quite the battle. We all had so much fun in our prime and didn’t even realize it was the best of what life offered. Sad to see our generation saying good-bye.

Thinking of your family and sending lots of love and prayers. Joe was one of my favorite people, he was always smiling and such a gem. He was always going the extra mile for me when I got into a bind with a job that needed done quickly. I was blessed to have known him and all of you. Joyce
