  1. Joe was one of the most amazing men I have ever known. He was always outside doing something; staying active. I would yell over .Hey Joe. everytime I saw him and he would look up and wave. I have known Joe for over 58 years; since I was born and I will sorely miss him. My love goes out to Hope, Agatha and Pat and their families. He has left such a great legacy. Beth Bundy Wolak and family

  2. Pat, Linda and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Joe and Janet
