I was with Joe when he met his wife from Story City Iowa..I loved Joe,Jackie sherill and Johnny majors all the coaches at Iowa State..the entire staff went on to my home town Pittsburgh and they made history with players such as Tony Dorset and Dan Marino..Joe was one of a kind..I met his folks from Florida and was on the sidelines at Iowa State with Joe and the team..I would sing the opening and the Iowa State fight song with the marching band on the field at half time..It was a wonderful...

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.

I have been a cowboy fan for forty years and the passion he brought to his special teams will be hard to beat! I will miss you Joe. Steve C. East Bernard, Tx

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.

My deepest sympathies to Joe's family and friends.
