I've known Joe since the early 70's . He was a friend, a trickster, a customer of mine at Sears, and sometimes scary. But if he liked you . you knew it. And if he didn't you knew that too. No family member would disagree with that. Joe was my friend and I will miss him. To Larry and Debbie you have my sincere sympathy.

Truly a wonderful man! Always stopped by our dry cleaners and would always tip my daughter when she was working to go towards her college fund....What a sweet gesture and what a kind and giving man! Our whole family is saddened and we hope your reflections of him bring you nothing but happy memories that make you smile!
