Joe was a friend of mine at UND, and when my husband's (boyfriend at the time) grandma died unexpectedly, Joe, who barely knew Doug, flew him down to Fargo and back for the funeral. Just one of those nice "Joe" things he was always doing for others. Can't believe he's gone. May his family seek comfort in the memory of his fine and generous spirit.
Joe was always the hunky guy with the smile in High School. I also remember him playing the drums in jazz band. He has left behind a wonderful legacy of people he loved and helped. May this be a comfort and give you strength.
Our deepest sympathy to Liz, your children and all Joe's family on the loss of your wonderful husband, father and loved one. He will clearly be missed by many.
We just learned of the passing of your beloved husband Joe. We were so saddened to learn this, but know that he is at peace and in a better place. God bless you and your family during this very difficult time! You're in our hearts and prayers!
Love and God bless,
Tom and Rose Riscili
We all grew up together with cousin Joe on the shores of East Battle Lake. He was always the good kid...the quiet kid. He grew up to be the kind of man that NEVER wanted recognition for the things he did for others always behind the scenes. No one could give a hug like Joe. All us Bjorke cousins want to send a hug to all the family left behind, with a special one for Janny. He will be missed.... Kate Bjorke Baldwin, Battle Lake MN
