I was so sorry to hear of the passing of one of my most cherished mentors. Mrs Metro, Joe, John and Lisa, thank you for sharing his life with so many of us. I have great memories of what a fantastic teacher he was as well as a coach. I still reflect on how he taught us lessons on the field, even when he might not have been aware that he was. One of the best remains in my memory and that is to prepare with diligence for every challenge in life. He first showed this to me in Jr High football as we were preparing to play Lower Paxton. They had a great team and a QB named Donnie Caum who went to PSU. Mr Moreskonich had scouted them,. Yes, a Jr High game, but he wanted us to be prepared and I remember it was like we knew every play they called. We won something like 34 to 14. He insilled the will to do your best at whatever you undertook. RIP Coach.

Doug McKay and Linda Fulton McKay send their condolences. We both have fond memories of physics class at CHHS with Mr. Moreskonish. Doug went on to a physics PHD because of Joe's influence and then on to a career in physics. He was a kind and inspiring teacher.

Joe was a dedicated coach and educator. His influence is enduring in my life, the lives of students and players he worked with over the years, and left a blue ribbon legacy in the Camp Hill School District to be modeled for years to come.

So sorry to hear of Coach Joe's passing. He was a true icon of the whole CHHS experience that brings only very fond memories. He was an excellent physics teacher (inspired me to study science and graduate in chemistry), and a wonderful & knowledgeable baseball coach during my years there. He touched the lives of all of us that were privileged enough to know him. CHHS class of '60

I cannot resist sharing some Metro-isms that I couldn't get out of my head when I heard of Coach's death. These baseball rules I have applied to the rest of my life, off the ballfield.

l. Outfielders: Hit the relay man in the head.
2. Infielders: 95% of groundball errors go under the glove.
3. Never watch a called third strike.
4. Mental mistakes should not happen; physical ones do.

His teachings went further than the classroom. TJG
