A GREAT TEACHER AND COACH AT EAST CHICAGO WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL. USE TO RUN INTO COACH AT STRACK AND VAN TILS IN HIGHLAND WHILE MAKING A DELIVERY. COACH WOULD ALWAYS TAKE THE TIME AND REMENISE ABOUT ECW. HAD HIM FOR A TEACHER. GREAT TEACHER AND DISCIPLINARY PERSON WHO HAD THE RESPECT OF HIS STUDENTS. HE WAS A GIANT OF A FIGURE, THEY DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE COACH ANYMORE. MY SYMPATHY TO COACHE'S FAMILY.
My heartfel condolences and love to my Aunt Ann and cousins Lisa and Barb, and the rest of the family during this time of loss and grief. I know Uncle Joe is smiling radiantly from Heaven, with angels and all the rest of our family. God Bless, and may you enjoy eternal happiness Uncle Joe.
