Thank you so much for the happiness you brought my sister,Suzie. I know she will truly miss you everyday.
Thank you for the 4 wonderful children that you had the privilege to be dad to. I sure they and your grandchildren know they didn’t have enough time with you.
May God hold you in the palm of his hand and unite you with the dear departed members of your family in heaven.
I’m so sorry that you and Suzie won’t grow old together.
Rest In Peace

Joey, so many fond memories growing up in our great neighborhood back in the day.......sledding down the big road hill next to your house, all the years in troop 134 boyscouts, camp read, and our crazy fathers that had as much fun together we all did. Rest in peace buddy and glad we enjoyed a slice of our lives together a long time ago.

Met you back for the first time back inn1985, instantly became friends. Even though we hadn’t stayed in contact to well after I left the area you were always in the back of my mind. Then low and behold 30+ years later we reconnect via social media and it’s like we never missed a day. Was so great getting back in touch with my “buddy” then to find out we both were in End Stage Renal Disease was a total shock. Was so great to hear the news when you got your transplant I was absolutely thrilled for you cause I know how my transplant changed my life, and was so happy you were gonna get another chance to enjoy your new life. It breaks my heart that your transplant didn’t turn out well. Things weren’t suppose to end up this way. God works in mysterious ways. I’m so heartbroken for you and Suzie and the kids. God is getting a great guy and leaving all of us with truly wonderful memories of one of the best people to ever walk the earth. Gonna miss you buddy.

Uncle Joe, You were always the happiest and biggest personality in the room at family functions! Always had a big smile on your face and some of the funniest stories and jokes to tell- and you will be missed! Your spirit lives on in your beautiful children Christina and Michael, who are a reflection of you & your beloved wife Suzie. I hope they find comfort in knowing that they have their own special guardian angel shining down on them & protecting them. Our prayers are with your family. We love and miss you! God bless! Love Matt, Tie, & the kiddies
