As the days pass I miss him more and more, during school I cannot stop thinking about him and how he was always joking around with me. Giving me headlocks while we were both laughing and our long talks on the phone that I always looked forward too. You are in my heart papa joe and you will always be loved. I miss you very much and I hope you are safe up in heaven.

I met Joe when I taught his grandson Chris in my 3rd grade class. Over the years I would run into Joe, the last time shortly before covid began, and he was always very pleasant with a story to tell. To Joe's family I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Joe was a classmate. He was an upstanding person, kind, thoughtful and generous, always smiling and willing to lend a helpful hand. Judy Roberts Doty
