I followed the 'boys since '71 and don't recall being a "fan" of many assistant coaches on any team, but I was a fan of Joe Avezzano. He brought production to special teams and was an admirable character and figure. I missed him when he left Dallas and was sad to see he had passed.

You were a great coach, part of a superbowl legacy..you will be truly missed. RIP coach.

We're all travelers in this world. From the sweet grass of the plains, to the glass towers of the cities. Our legacies, both small and grand stand still. From birth to death, we travel between the eternities.

Thanks for the memories Coach Joe. You were so kind, loved all people, and always had time for your football fans and friends. You gave the Dallas Cowboys so much of your heart, spirit, and fun-loving soul. God Bless You and our prayers are with your family.

Coach Joe was a wonderful man, great coach, and he lived life to the fullest. He knew how to have fun, and you could always tell howmuch he loved to coach football. he loved it so much. Also, he was a proud FSU Seminole too, which is always a good thing. You will be truly missed---thanks for the memories, the coaching legacy, and for being a great family man.

There will never be another Coach Joe. He and Tom Landry were second to none in integrity, class and being the perfect role models. I'm sure they are reminicing about the Cowboys tonight. Another true Legend taken too soon from this earth.
April 22, 2012
Remembering your family in heartfelt thoughts of sympathy, and hoping it helps to know that others care and share your loss.
Please remember that the God of all comfort promises a time soon when death, mourning and pain will be no more!

Ah, Coach Joe, thank you for your gifts of coaching and of humor! I thank your family, too, for the time they were parted from you; I imagine that was a tremendous amount and we thank you. Thank you for being a class act (like Landry) in a cut-throat world, and a wonderful example of sportsman to *all* sports. We will never forget your kindness, enthusiasm, professionalism, and just all-around goodness. Thank you, God, for sharing Coach Joe with us! May he rest in peace, and I for one am glad I am saved so that I can see Joe again in Heaven!
April 16, 2012
Diane and Tony, our deepest condolences and our prayers are with you.

April 15, 2012
It's very true of what has been said about "Coach Joe", in that he ALWAYS treated the fans as friends; there were no strangers in his life. I had the pleasure of meeting him once, in 2002, when he was head coach of the Dallas Desperados. The picture I had taken from that event, together with "Coach Joe" and Mickey Spagnola, will always be a treasured personal memento from that time. Godspeed, "Coach Joe", and thank you very, very much.

Dear Mrs. Avezzano and Tony:

I offer sincere condolences to both of you and am remembering you in my prayers. When Coach Joe was on the Texas A & M staff, I was a faculty member there. And when he was on the Dallas Cowboy staff, my family and I were among his greatest fans. Thank you for sharing him with us who love football and appreciated his talents very much. God bless you.
April 12, 2012
Our families became friends when the Avezzanos moved to Corvallis, OR. Our son Patrick & Tony became great friends. We send our sympathy & love to Dian & Tony. We especially remember our last dinner together when Joe let us try on his Superbowl ring.

April 11, 2012
Coach Joe will be missed greatly. I had the opportunity to meet him on several occasions and even take his class "X's & O's w/ Coach Joe" - I'll never forget him. Cowboys Nation lost someone we all adored for his passion, enthusiasm and love of live. I hope we are all so lucky to enjoy those in our own lives in the way he did.

Thank you, Coach Joe!

My love, prayers and thoughts are with his family, friends and his second family - the Dallas Cowboys during this time.

Always a Fan of Coach Joe,
April 11, 2012
Coach Avezzano was a classic! I had the priveledge to play for Joe at Oregon State from 1980-82. "The Winning Edge" and "Beaver Time" still ring loudly in my ears - Coach had a passion for special teams and I will always be thankful for the opportunity he gave me at OSU. Tony, I remember you hanging out on the sidelines during practice with Chris Mangold. We will keep you, and your Dad & Mom in our prayers. GO WITH JOE!

First let me thank Coach Joe's family for sharing not only him with all of us but allowing us the opportunity to grieve with you.
I remember as a little girl with my Nanny watching "The Boys" as she would call them. She loved Joe. He always made her laugh.
May god bless you all and keep you. Thanks for all of the memories!
April 10, 2012
Anytime that I heard that Joe was giving a local interview, I looked forward to listening, watching. A breath of fresh air. What a loss for the Cowboys when Jerry let him go. Now a bigger lost for this world. May God be with his family during this difficult time.

Joe and his wife Diane were Part of John Major's Univeristy of Pittsburgh Football program. We knew Joe and Diane in Pittsburgh and went to visit with them once in Texas. He was a really great guy who loved life, family. Everyone who knew Joe will never forget him. We had four young children at the time and Joe and Diane would come to visit. Our children still remember the present that they brought for them. He was too young to have passed away. We will not forget him. We send our deepest sympathy to his wife, Diane and his son, Tony. Joe will be missed by all of us Carol and Joe Massaro, Pittsburgh, Pa.

April 06, 2012
We had a lot of fun with Joe and his family, whom we met while he was coaching at Texas A & M. We made trips to the Houston Rodeo. He would drop by the Texas Hall of Fame often and sing a note or two. He was an awesome guy. Because of Joe, we became season ticket holders to the Dallas Cowboys home games. We had always been Dallas fans but we also we "Joe" fans. He always made sure we were taken care of and showed us the greatest hospitality. Diane, I know you will miss him as I have missed Paul, if you ever need to talk, please call me. So sorry for your loss. Love you dearly, Janie Emola
April 06, 2012
My hometown is Massillon, Ohio, where Coach Joe started his football career. Always felt proud of that while watching Coach Joe on Sunday afternoons. Loved the Cowboys in the 90's. Those were the days, my friend! Loved your Tuesday show on The Range, 95.3. RIP Coach and may the Perpetual Light shine upon your soul.
