    We have lived next door to Joe for 12 years. Our daughter has grown up with him. We are so very sorry for your loss. Your dad will be missed.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Joe for the past several years. We shared many things in common including employer and places we had lived and visited. I will be sad to not hear from him during tax season and throughout the year with calls about “is this allowed”. 🙂 My deepest condolences to MaryAnn and Raymond and their children and grandchildren.

    I met Joe at Fitness World where he introduced me to my now-ex-husband, Loren Bussey. Our family sold novelty items at parades and such for him. He also took our youngest son, Taron, with him a time or two to help out.
    Joe was a good guy and I always enjoyed visiting with him. He had a great sense of humor, had great stories and was always very generous.
    I’m sorry for your loss.

    I will miss Joe very much. Met Joe years ago at Zach’s Club 54 where I would see him most early mornings. He was always so kind and would make his rounds at the gym and speak to everyone. Later on we attended church together – Trinity Fellowship where I had the privilege of seeing him weekly as he greeted everyone during the early service.
    Joe had nicknames for many people, mine was Arizona and it was our private, inside joke. My husband use to joke that Joe did not know my real name because he called me Arizona. Even though we are heartbroken and will miss our friend dearly -I know he is having a wonderful day with Jesus and I am thankful for joy in knowing we will see him again.
    Love and blessings,
    Samarah & Michael Meil
