Melissa and family,
I just came across Joe's obituary when unwrapping a purchase made today and was shocked and saddened to read of his passing. what a fun and memorable person in my life and in Billy's. I know you'll miss him terribly especially at this time of year. I feel for you all and wish you the best as endure the loss of such a wonderful husband and dad. You were so blessed to spend so much of life with such a positive, loving and warm person!
Grief can be so hard during the holidays, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one this holiday season.
Very sorry to hear of Joe's passing. Wonderful memories of Joe and his smile and his zest for life. Always had to have a butterscotch pie made by my mother when he came to Hazard. Only got to see Joe when he came to Hazard, but now wish I had gone on his annual golf trip! All my best to the family.

Coach will always hold a special place in my soul. I learned a great deal about how to deal with adversity, and more importantly, how no job was too menial for any of us. His infectious laugh and encouraging words left a lasting impression. Although I graduated HHS in 1987 - you have not been far from my thoughts on many occasions. Thanks so much Joe! You will be missed.
