We are sad we cannot be with our family today, due to our international travel. Ironically 14 years ago almost to the day Uncle Joe, Aunt Alice and my mom were with us on this same beach in the Dominican Republic for our wedding. As almost always, Uncle Joe was teaching us something...that time it was all about how to Catamaran. Now all 3 have passed.

Today we say our final good bye's with heavy hearts, however the pain of Uncle Joe's loneliness has ended and knowing he has been reunited with his love my (my Aunt Alice), siblings Judy and my mom Jeannie, and his parents makes that sorrow tollerable. I have so many memories of Uncle Joe from my early childhood... fishing on Lake Michigan with him & Grandpa, to the many, many years of vacations from the time we were little to adulthood when we brought our next generation along on trips to Minocqua....Bob, Ilene, Uncle Dan & Aunt Arlene, my mom, and all of us kids and then grand kids. I wondered how many families were blessed to spend as much time together as we were with our extended families?! I remember boating, waterskiing on Uncle Joe's shoulders and snorkeling with him. And talking about our Scuba diving experiences with him. In more recent years we took an adventure filled snowmobile trip with Joe and Alice and our kids to Baraga Michigan. Alice was a trooper, and Joe smiled from ear to ear. We shared your love for the outdoors, hunting, fishing, boating, and love of travel. So many great memories...we love you Uncle Joe and will miss you, and all of your advice.

Joe was a generous friend. He was an excellent fisherman. We enjoyed many outings on Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago. He and Alice visited me at my home on Lake Poygan.
After being out of fishing for several years, Joe approached me at an Oshkosh Rotary meeting. We set a date to fish together in my boat. After that it wasn't long before he bought his Crestliner. We had great success in that boat. I will miss him. John Diamond
