Joe Engelberg was my Physiology Professor at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine from 1968 - 1970. He was without question the most influential teacher in my professional life as well as making and an incredible impact on my personal intellectual, spiritual and emotional life. I owe so much to his wise counsel and friendship. I have just retired from the practice of Medicine after 45 years of work. Joe's concept of "Wholism and Integration" proved to be the bedrock of my approach to the care of my patients which served them and me well.

He was a profoundly spiritual and deep thinking person and I treasure the times we spent together in his office contemplating life as well as several retreats that we took together at Gethsemani, the Trappist Monastery in Central Kentucky.

I am saddened that I was not able to share these thoughts with him directly during his lifetime. I hope this note reaches his wife, Judy, and that she may take some comfort in knowing the impact that Joe's life had on this physician and ultimately the patients that he served. I will never forget Joe Engelberg, a true mensch if there ever was one!

my 3rd cousin (but more like an uncle). He was more, much, more; a life teacher, mentor, confidant, cheerleader, and (perhaps) the best emotional and intellectual booster. As a child and a young adult; he sent me classical records (which have reached my soul, for 60 + years). He would have private walk and talks (whenever he came to our city- about every 5 years). During these talks, Joe would seem to know, my inner thoughts and problems; then come up (with explanations, coping ideas, and a raised confidence). I did have several chances, to visit his family and loved every minute. He was my personal hero.

It's been a long time since I have seen Mr Engleberg but my memory of him and his family have never been far from my mind. I had the great pleasure of growing up just a few doors down from their own home and became great friends with their daughter...Elise or Lisa as I knew her. He made a great impression on me and my own understanding of religion and faith. From his teachings I learned to embrace many people from varying walks of life. His love for his family and tradition left a undying impression upon this young child. As an adult I have spoke of him often. I am sorry to hear of his passing and send my love to Judy and to you Lisa. I will miss him and think of you all often. Much love and prayers.
Also... I was sorry to hear of your sister's passing.

Judy,
Bill joins me in expressing our sympathy for your and your family's loss. Each time I saw Joe, he was such a gentleman and patient. While I was in his class, he made sure that each person had his/her turn to speak.
He will be missed.
Janny and Bill
