We enjoyed Joel during many ATV rides. He was a faithful member of Two Rivers ATV Club for many years. His Can Am was one of the faster ATVs in the Club. He was a quiet man. Yet we remember Joel as someone always ready for a Challenge Ride. Bryce Canyon is one our favorites, also. We will think of him when we ride among the Hoodoos.

To Joel's entire family,
I am so sorry for your loss! Joel was a kind soul. I hope you all find comfort in your memories of him. I have been gone from Wilton for nearly 35 years, but I will always remember his grin and the twinkle in his eye when he laughed. Oh, and nobody had or ever will have a walk quite like him! Yes, our class has lost yet another way too soon, but Heaven just gained an angel. RIP Joel!
