    • What an amazing and kind man. Always looking for a smile. So sorry for your loss. Ellie is dancing with her handsome hubby again 😘

  1. God Bless You All.
    I only met Joe once, he came off to me as an honest, helpful, warm man. I wish you all well.

  2. Joe was a wonderful teacher. He gave me my first chance as a cosmetology graduate into the world of haircuting. He was patient, fair and honest. He was a great mentor to me. He taught me all the ins and outs of the beauty business. Most importantly I could always count on him to give me some great life advice. I know my life would have taken a different track had we not met. I’m so thankful to you Joe. You will be missed my friend. All my love and condolences to your family.

  3. I will miss you so much Joey! What a wonderful caring, giving and gentle man you were. Not only my wonderful brother in law but a person that makes you feel like you are important and loved, like you really matter!
    You were a super husband to my sister Ellie, a strong, loving and fair father to your children and other young people including myself when I was growing up.
    I miss you so much but I’m also glad you are now reunited with Ellie and most of all with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ!
