Dear Carol and family,

As the wife and family of Coach Wirth, you shared him with countless football players. I played the game for many years and Coach Wirth was by far the best coach and friend a player could have. He understood the game and could communicate what was needed to his players and more importantly, he understood the people who played the game. We always knew Coach was behind us, always encouraging and teaching.
God bless Joe Wirth and God bless his family.

With respect and love,

He will be missed. A true man among men. Coach Wirth was integral in developing my mental and physical toughness and resilience. His short stint at Union College built the solid base which launched the Dutchman Football program into the upper echelon of Division III teams. Thank you Coach!!!

To Aunt Carol and all the Wirth cousins; I know football was an extremely important piece of Uncle Joe's life but what the families in Pittsburgh remember is: visiting in Brooklyn, fishing when we were supposed to be hunting and feeling the rabbit "pooh" to see if it is fresh. The story telling with dad and Uncle Joe, talk about big fish stories. The straight talk regarding playing football and getting an education. He never led one down the wrong path when it was time for a serious discussion.

I also remember other fun times; i.e. visiting up in Franklin on the river, late night bass fishing at the boy scout lake, fishing up in RI and his sense of humor and use of nicknames for all the cousins. Always looking at the bright side of things. Uncle Joe will definitely be missed by all of us.
