Guest Book Highlights

October 07, 2017 "I attended Purdue to obtain my doctorate from 1997 to 2002. Such a grueling process from such a high standard school left little time for anything other than studies and my family. My guilty pleasure is and was Purdue football and basketball! Thanks to Coach Tiller and. Keady the time spent away from my PhD was always time well spent!

There's was really no way to personally thank Coach Tiller for those temporary reprieves that were my Saturday afternoons! Remarkably, I was able to meet Coach Keady some years later at the annual (Springfield Illinois) Purdue booster club meeting when I won the autographed basketball that he brought to the club meeting!

I pray for Coach Tiller's peace and rest in the presence of God who can surely use a guy like him around! I pray for his family to find the solace and peace that time and memories will provide! Thanks, Coach, for making my time at Purdue bearable and for the memories!

October 06, 2017 "Coach Tiller is one of the most influential persons in my life.
His worldly lessons transcended his coaching profession.

Dedicated to his Maker, Arnette and family as well as
the thousands of young athletes he helped transform.

Always with his eye on the ultimate goal
of success in life and living right.

Amen to you my friend, mentor and football visionary.

October 03, 2017 "I had the privlage to know Joe during his high school years and play football with him at Rogers. It was a great to see all that he acheived through his hard work and dedication. He came from humble beings and maintained that humility through his lifetime. May the peace of God be with his family in third time." - Emil Strohmaier (Waterville,, OH)
October 03, 2017 "Coach Tiller was a wonderful person and coach. He gave my son a chance and then a scholarship. We have many memories of Saturday afternoon games and two great Alamo Bowls. He helped bring our whole family together for these times. Our prayers and sympathies are with the family. God Bless you all.
" - Doug Stelma (Caledonia, MI)
