My Condolence to the Manion Family . God Bless

Joe was a friend of the Chiropractor's office my girlfriend works at. One day she came home and said a man named Joe invited us to a spaghetti dinner. Although a stranger at the time, I thought it would be a great plan to just get out. I met Joe for the first time that night and fell in love with him. Since then we went back twice a year and joined him and his wonderful wife, Martha, for a spaghetti dinner. When I think about Joe now I just smile because of how bright of a character he was. I...

I miss you immensely, Pops. I will miss your e-mails and your jokes and most of all your great, big Irish smile! You're an angel for all those less fortunate in this world. Until we meet again...Love, your youngest daughter, Susan

Joe,certainly will be missed,he really "made a difference". I have never met anyone that could light up a room and give others so much energy and make all of those around him so much happier,with their mere presence. I was always amazed at Joe and how he could keep up with everything and was such a "young thinker"..What a "cool" guy..Till we meet again "Buckeye",Deepest Sympathy to Martha and The Family..Joe's Chiropractor

I used to have breakfast with Joe most mornings at the JW cafeteria along with a regular group of breakfast guys. What a great way to start the day with Joe and the group. He is remembered and missed.

Joe, despite his politics, was an excellent person. I knew him from the time Briggs became a part of Walter Industries. Joe was also a member of The Lunch Bunch, a group of old-timers from the corporation who met for lunch quarterly. He will be sincerely missed.

Joe provided leadership for all of us freshmen at OU in the 50s. We'll miss you Joe!
