I have a lot of fond memories of Uncle Joe. I remember how proud he was when he moved in with my grandmother, his sister Bea, to take care of her. I think they both kept each other going. He had meals organized, and was an attentive host. We would often do “KP” duty together at the end of a meal. He always had lots of engaging questions for me, and was genuinely interested in my life and my family. I will miss him greatly.

I too have fond memories of uncle Joe. Although I only rarely had the opportunity to spend time with him. Those opportunities were some of the golden moments of my young life. He always had a joke or a great story or useful life-lessons and insights. He was a wonderful man and in many ways an exemplary role model
