“Joe” was a giver of love and grace to all whom he came in contact with, he was the type of man who would give the shirt off his back to make someone’s life a little better. He was a humble man and gave many life lessons by the way he led his life. Joe gave his all to his very last breath teaching all nothing is ever too late or too hard. He believed if a person was going to do something, to do it with all their heart and all their might. He led his children and wife to Christ by his compassion to the word of God from the bible and he lived this way every day of his life. He will be greatly missed by many. The best way to describe Joe in one word is Love.
