He also boasts 32 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Huh!

His family wants to express their appreciation and love to all of Joe’s friends that came to be with him or called in his final days. It meant everything to him. A lighthearted and joyful celebration of Joe’s life will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 23, 2024.

15 years ago our daughter was early in her addiction and Joe gave us direction and advice. I have thought of him often thru the years. So sorry for the loss of this good, kind, and generous man. He made the world a better place.
