I meant hem many years ago when I was in high school. He headed a bike group that was a explore post a branch of the boy scouts. We named it YBOL Youth bikers of Louisville. We quite often rode with the Louisville bikers club as well. my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. God bless..
What a wonderful guy! I loved running into him at the C-J. I'm so sorry he is gone. The photo you picked is a great reminder of who he was.
I remember Joe as a humble, kind and compassionate man. Suzanne, Senlin and David, my prayers are with you in the weeks and months ahead.
I was a classmate of Joe's at Victor High School. We were great friends at that time and it sounds like he had a very rewarding career, life and family. My condolences to you all.
Suzanne and Senlin, my thoughts are with you and I am sorry for Joe's loss. I remember him fondly.
Sorry for your loss. He certainly led an interesting and productive life.
Senlin, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He was such a wonderful person. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Joe was a great neighbor. I'm very sad he is gone.
I had the privilege of riding a 60 mile loop from Kalispell to Whitefish, Montana and back to Kalispell. It was just the two of us together enjoying a beautiful summer Montana day, riding the back roads and rural highways, and getting to know each other. We were distant cousins, but Joe made me feel like close family. I'll never forget his warm personality, ready wit, and keen intelligence. I drank an Old Forester toast to Joe with his family last night albeit in absentia, but I was there in spirit--as was Joe, I might add. Cheers, Joe. We're going to miss you.
My wonderful brother has gone. I will miss him as long as I am on this earth.
Joe was, is my big brother, and an avid cyclist, of the two I'm not sure which he liked the best! So today in his honor I started a 100 mile bike ride which I hope to complete before this time next week. I know he could do it in a day, but every minute I'm riding here in Seattle I'll be thinking of him and wishing he had made it to Seattle to ride with me! I did get to do one of the Turtle rides in his book last October, it will be one of my most precious memories. I'll love you forever Joe. Suzanne, Senlin and David know all of us in Seattle you just as much as we loved Joe.
A wonderful colleague and friend. God be with you on your journey. I've no doubt that there's a bicycle just for you to pedal around on all day.
So many memories of riding with Joe and particularly the Horsey and the one which we did with Boyd who later said "Beware of a man with a map"( Joe) as it was over 100 to get there and Boyd was getting up there in age and still had the Horsey to do and then bike back to Louisville!!
Fun times, Joe.
Jow Ward came to my house in Ashland many years ago to write a story on Kentucky Workers' Compensation. He was very detailed in his writing and very professional. Although that was my only meeting with him, I always followed his writing in CJ.
Joe will be greatly missed. There is a new hole in the fabric of the world.
