Dear Metro Family:
We are saddened on learning of Joe's passing. Craig spent many years with Joe on the CHHS faculty. Joe was one of Craig's mentors when he started teaching in 1972. Both Joe and Rose were very kind to our daughter Alyssa when she was very small (the school & book bag gift for Alyssa). God bless you and the entire family. He will be sorely missed by all!
In Christian love

My deepest sympathies to the Metro family, especially to Mrs Metro, my elementary school art teacher. I will always remember Mr Metro's 7th grade Life Science class--what a great combination of personal interest in students and enthusiasm for science which helped inspire me to study engineering at the Air Force Academy. You are the truest example of the finest educator and are greatly missed.
-Andrew Adams, CHHS Class of 1989
Dear Family of "Mr. Metro",
I was not the best physics student in his class, but somehow always knew that he cared for each student. What a kind and gentle man he was - and certainly a great teacher for us all. Thank you for sharing him with so many students over so many years. My sympathy is with you as you grieve the loss of this special man in your lives. May God's comfort be with you in the days ahead.

I still feel so grateful to Mr. Metro for sharing his passion for life science with us in seventh grade and in the 6th-grade outdoor education program (I still think of the flutes he whittled from sugar maples). He was a wonderful and inspiring educator. We all send our thanks and sympathy.
My deepest heartfelt sympathy to the Metro Family during this sad time. Joe will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Especially by his many friends and associates at the Cornerstone Coffeehouse. Joe was a great man and I am honored to call him my friend.
