Although gone too soon Joe always lived life to the fullest and made everyone around him feel like family. Knowing Joe my whole life I never remember a time he wasn’t smiling or helping someone which made him so special. He will be missed but I’m sure he and Joe Sr are making sure the gates of heaven are level and square and cracking a few jokes while doing what they loved. We send our condolences and know the family has one special guardian angel watching over now.

Joe was such a regular part of my child, it’s hard to believe he’s gone. There were times I swore he couldn’t remember my name cause he always called me “squirt” and it was always followed by a noogie. My hearts breaks for you. May the angels lead you in ?
