JOE WILL GREATLY BE MISSED,HE ALWAYS WAS ASKING ME TO GO TO GREENHIILL TO GOLF,JUST NOT THE SAME HERE WITHOUT HIM.

Joe was a wonderful man and neighbor. I enjoyed many walks around the neighborhood with Joe as he recounted stories from his past and present. His love and devotion to Mary and his family was always evident as he spoke warmly of them and family events. May Joe rest in peace and may Mary have peace and comfort in Joe's undying love and devotion. Prayers and thoughts are with Mary and the family.

Thoughts and prayers for brother Joe and family..Worcester Fire had fun having him...

i had the joy of knowing Joe as he was a resident at the nursing home i work at. he was a kind and gentle man with a wry sense of humor who was always quick with a joke. he loved his wife mary very much.. his first question when he got up in the morning was "is mary up yet?" and to see the two of them sitting together holding hands was just so heartwarming. R.I.P joe, we'll sure miss you around here!

Mary, sorry for your loss. If my memory serves me right he and I were on the same list for entrance to the fire department. Take care Mary.
We can't be present for the calling hours as we are still in Florida.

Thank you for teaching me thoughtfulness, kindness, love and compassion to all. Love your niece Kathy

Joe & Mary were my wonderful neighbors 2 doors away in Timberbrook for many years. Joe was the most cheerful, caring, active, loving person I've ever known. Mary often said how lucky she was to have him as her husband. One morning, the steam from my shower made one of my smoke alarms go off, and as I stood upstairs naked, waving a towel to stop it, I heard Joe's voice at the front door: "Alice, are you all right?!!!" I told him yes and so he didn't come up the stairs. It was...
