Not sure what to say?

Joe made such an impression in our lives. Not only was he a mentor to my husband, he was also a true friend and hero to both of us. He was someone that stood out in our lives and was such a solid and formiable person. I will miss him...knowing that he is no longer here, leaves a large void. He will always be remembered as a wonderful and inspirational part of our lives.

I feel privledged to have known Joe through the Fauver Company family. He was a kind, caring, and the first to put a smile on his face as well as everyone he was with. He will be sorely missed by many.

I am glad I lived on the 3rd line the same time as Joe and you. He was a great comfort to me when Mid died I can see them both telling jokes. Take care and God bless all of you

Dear Audrey & family, I'm so deeply saddened by this loss to you. I sincerely pray that the love you have always shown for each another and your entire family will help you get through this most difficult time. I've always been inspired by the way you all make time to be together, especially Sunday mornings at Edna's. It gave me a warm feeling to see a family so close, and I began to take my family out for breakfast by your example. I thank you for showing us how important family is,...

Dear Audrey and Family:

I knew Joe many years ago when he lived in Toronto and when he lived in a little basement apartment with Colin McCracken. Although I haven't seen him for a long time, I would hear from him from time to time over the years and kept up with all that happened with his life, you, the kids and the grandkids. I have vivid memories of our "young years" in Toronto and all the fun we had. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Some people come into our lives
and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile,
leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never, ever the same.

May God grant your family strength in the day and peace at night.

As a former Fauver colleague of Joe's, whenever I visit Windsor my thoughts always go first to the wonderful times Joe was part of. He seemed to always be the spark to business and GOOD times.
My sincerest sympathies to your family.

There are no words to completely express how we feel about your loss. Our hearts go out to you all and you'll be in our thoughts and prayers during this time of sadness. Joe's a great guy. He loved to have everyone around him. He was courageous, charming, funny, caring and he lived life to the fullest. Liked to think outside the box. I don't think there wasn't anything Joe couldn't do. He explored pretty much everything.
After working for Joe for many years, we'd gone through a lot of...

I just want the Byrne family to know that Joe was my mentor. He was a great friend, and always made me feel a part of your familly. I will miss him a lot. We had a lot of good times together
