Obituary

Joe was a great man! He was kind, loving, generous, spiritual, caring, hard working and funny. The greatest husband, Dad, Brother, Uncle, Grandpa, friend, colleague, and best mashed potato maker. Joe loved people, all people. If you met Joe, you became his friend. He wanted all people to have whatever they needed and would do whatever he could to help. Joe was faithful to God and did God's work all his life including his newest friends. Rest in Peace Joe. You are and will always be terribly missed! LOVE YOU MORE THAN THE SKY!!!!!!!!!
