Joe was my supervisor at MDC for many years. He was a well respected person, willing to listen to different perspectives before making a decision. Although at times I drove him crazy, he was enjoyable to work with. I am very sad to hear about his passing; my condolences to his family.

Joe was a good union man who worked hard to support working people. I had the pleasure of serving on several SEIU 509 union committees with him. Rest In Peace union brother.

So sorry to hear about Joe’s passing. I worked with him at Monson for 25 years as an Adm. Assistant. He was a nice guy. I enjoyed hearing all his stories and beliefs that he would often speak about.
May he RIP!
