I only had the pleasure of going to Dr. Joe a few times. I started going to Dr. joe's son young Dr. Joe because his office closer to my home. Young Dr. Joe is a great guy and I know he will surely miss his wonderful, kind and very personable dad. I was very shocked to hear the bad news. May you Rest in Peace Dr. Joe. Linda
Although Dr. Joe is now in the Kingdom of God, he lives on in the hearts of those he inspired. His legacy will remain and continue through all the generations. We will miss him.
With deepest sympathy,
In the mid-1970's, I was in elementary school and needed an emergency root canal on the weekend. Dr. Joe brought me in, worked by himself, and saved the day. It's thirty-five plus years later, and I'm still a patient. Nowadays, we would talk politics and public policy. What a character....with great insight!
I've been a patient of yours for over 40 years. Going to the dentist always made me nervous, but whenever I got there you always made me feel at ease with your jokes. Whenever I needed you, you always came and met me in your office even if it was a Saturday or Sunday. I will miss you terribly.
Eckman & Office Family,
We are sorry for your great loss. We loved Dr. Joe's insights on politics, his humor, sense of fun and more because of his Christian values. We will see him again! God love you all.
Dear Ellen, Dr. Joe Jr., and Family,
Dr. Joe was a wonderful person with a delightful personality. We will miss seeing him around. May God Bless you
all through your time of sorrow and
James & Rita Smyth

Joe was a CLASS ACT all the way
Ellen Ann and family, I was saddened by the news of Dr. Eckman's passing. My prayers are with you and the family. He did great things and will be greatly missed.
Blessed are we that the Lord shared one of his sons with us. God bless and peace be with the family.
Ellen Ann, Kathy Ann, Greg and Lester,
My prayers are with all of you during this time of mourning. It was my pleasure to know all of you and to work with you through the camp ministry at Sandy Hill. As you know, Tri-Pres Camp had its early origins at Sandy Hill under Morning Cheer Ministries and the Palmer Family, and continued for several years after Dr. Joe purchased the property. His commitment to God and to using his rescources to serve God and his community were a blessing to many. As a director of Tri-Pres Camp, I was blessed by that commitment. Many children and their families were blessed by that desire and commitment. The work that you continue will continue that legacy. May God comfort you and truely bless you during the holiday season and beyond. May God bless you and keep you, may the Lord turn his face towards you and give you his peace.
