Deepest condolences to Josephs wife, children, and family. I had the pleasure of working with Joe several years ago at BMRCC on the 11-7 shift. Could always count on Joe on any assignments. Despite the unique stress working those hours, Joe always had a smile on his face and a positive personality that stood above others.

Monica & Family, Carlene & I are so sorry for your loss. Joe was a genuine person and a joy to get to know and hang out with. We had good times during the Heartland Elite days! He was a family man and a great friend that will be truly missed. You all will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

We are so sorry for the untimely loss of Joey. He would occasionally come to our house with his family to put his boat in the water - the house where he grew up. We remember him as a kid in this house. He was always a kind and gentle spirit. He was blessed tremendously throughout his life with a fine family and home. May God bring comfort and peace in this great loss of a humble man, now home with his Father.

Joe, I'd only seen you a a couple of times in the last 30 years or so, because I moved away from Johnston City after High School. My memories with you start when I was in the 5th grade with Greg and you were in 1st or 2nd grade. I would come over to your House (I believe on Perrine St). Before you moved to the Lake of Egypt You, Greg & I would cram in the back seat of your mom's little Blue Pinto to go to the Lake for the weekend, while Lee Anne got to sit up front. Lots of Memories of getting in trouble with Bob (good man) because of Fireworks, Walking on the Lake Ice and other things. I was glad to hear a few years ago that you were a Correctional Officer for IDOC. You and Monica have have a Beautiful Family. Joe, you done good!!!
