So many special memories one could write a book (or two, or more) Uncle Joe was such a special man in so many ways... he was a man of many artist, a sailor, a cowboy, a hunter, a story teller, a traveler, a golfer, a friend, a husband, a father, and much more. He could fill a room with a gruff voice and yet was a kind hearted gentleman, and protector. He was an entertainer and life of the party, always had great stories of his adventures in life. He will be missed so very much. Rest in Peace Uncle Joe until we meet again....Happy Trails!!!

To Patty, Boe, Pat, Cody, Robin, and your families: Joe brought joy to many a Highland neighborhood gathering. My favorite conversations with him were when he'd share his role in Patty and Boe meeting. Billy and I extend our sympathies and mourn with you.
