So sad to hear about Joe. I worked with Joe when we were both supervisors in building 104 at GM. Joe was the sweetest guy. Always so helpful and kind. Joe will be missed.

My prayers go out to the family, love ones, and friends of Joe Seim. I’ve learned that people may forget what you said, people may forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. The time I spent working and talking with Joe will never be forgotten. He was a friend that listened and shared some good advice that helped me during some difficult times. I will always be appreciative to Joe for those conversations.
God Bless you Joe.
